An anonymous reader quotes a report from Reuters: Meta has halted construction of two data centers in Odense, Denmark, and will instead focus on a new type of data center used for artificial intelligence (AI), a spokesperson said on Thursday. Facebook-owner Meta already has two large data centers in Odense, but only one of the three other centers currently under development there will be completed. Construction on the two halted data centres in Odense began in August. However, on Tuesday Meta terminated the deal with contracting company Per Aarsleff worth 2.4 billion Danish crowns ($344 million). “Over the past month, we have announced a number of measures to make us a more streamlined organization,” Meta spokesperson Peter Munster told Reuters. “A significant part of these measures is to shift a larger part of our resources to high-priority growth areas, including a strategic investment in artificial intelligence,” he said.
