I know it might sound really funny, but data heating is more or less what happens when you use the heat produced by data centres to warm up a town. Science-fiction?
Not so much. The WEDISTRICT project is testing this idea live right now, and I was lucky enough to do an interview with one of the leaders of the project, Jon Summers, for ESCI.
If you want to know more about this interesting project, check the project website or go read the full interview. I am sure you will enjoy it!
