    ECE Seminar: A Modular Platform for Nanopower Computing

    Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    3:00 PM L440, Technological Institute

    EVENT DETAILS

    Speaker: Pat Pannuto

    University of California, San Diego

    Hosted by Assistant Professor Josiah Hester

    Beyond the Internet of Things that is emerging today lies the Internet of
    Everything—the vision of ubiquitous and pervasive computing, of a digital
    sensory layer enveloping the world. Realizing this vision relies on expanding
    our capability to place computation in the wild, 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.

    Pat Pannuto is currently completing his PhD in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley and will be joining the Computer Science Department at the University of California, San Diego this winter. He received his MSE in Computer Science and BSE in Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan. Pat's research is in the broad area of networked embedded systems, with contributions to computer architecture, wireless communications, mobile computing, operating systems, and development engineering. Pat's work has been recognized as a Top Pick in Computer Architecture and selected as a Best Paper Finalist at IPSN, and has been awarded NSF, NDSEG, and Qualcomm Innovation fellowships. Pat has also received teaching awards from the Computer Science Department, the College of Engineering, and the Rackham Graduate School at the University of Michigan.
