About the Event

Beyond the Internet of Things that is emerging today lies the Internet of Everything—the vision of pervasive, ubiquitous computing, of a digital sensory layer enveloping the world. Realizing this vision relies on expanding our capability to place computation in the world, to then network these sensors, to manage them, and most challengingly, to power them.

This talk is about a suite of solutions working in concert to usher in the nanopower computing class. We will discuss architectural innovations that enable power oblivious operation and modular design for millimeter-scale devices. Next, we will look at how to bring multiprocessing, safety, and resource isolation to the deeply embedded computing class. Then, we will consider the some of services, in particular localization, necessary to make pervasive computers useful and viable. Finally, we will look toward the future, with an eye towards what technical challenges remain and how our interactions with computational infrastructure will change as we realize the ubiquitous computing vision.
