====Models and training====
Many recent projects in deep learning have used increasingly large computational resources to create models.
 
The compute resources used for the largest model training runs was shown to have doubled in size every 3.4 months from 2012-2018<ref>{{Cite web|url=https://openai.com/blog/ai-and-compute/|title=AI and Compute|date=2018-05-16|website=OpenAI|language=en|access-date=2021-03-27}}</ref>.
 
====Inference====
Some estimates show the vast majority of energy (80-90%) used by deep learning models is spent on inference<ref>{{Cite web|url=https://www.forbes.com/sites/moorinsights/2019/05/09/google-cloud-doubles-down-on-nvidia-gpus-for-inference/|title=Google Cloud Doubles Down On NVIDIA GPUs For Inference|last=Strategy|first=Moor Insights and|website=Forbes|language=en|access-date=2021-03-27}}</ref><ref>{{Cite web|url=https://youtu.be/ZOIkOnW640A?t=5327|title=AWS re:Invent 2018 - Keynote with Andy Jassy|last=Jassy|first=Andy|date=|website=YouTube|url-status=live|archive-url=|archive-date=|access-date=2021-03-27}}</ref>.
