achievements, biomedical, internetofthings, research, wearable

An article on the HEEPocrates chip has been published in the EUROPRACTICE Activity Report 2023. EUROPRACTICE was launched by the European Commission in 1995 as a successor of EUROCHIP (1989-1995) to enhance European industrial competitiveness in the global market. A detailed breakdown of the chip and its component processes and features is presented in the (…)

Predicting the future with CloudProphet

memory, research, servers

If we are going to reduce the carbon footprint of data centers we need to use computing resources more efficiently. If processes always made use of data center facilities in a regular way, it would be an easy game. However, the resources of a data center are used by customers (more often customers of customers) (…)

X-HEEP community is growing fast: X-Agora at EPFL

achievements, internetofthings, memory, research, wearable

The Internet of Things is expanding at an incredible rate, and consequently demands for ever smaller intelligent hardware are constantly increasing. The Embedded Systems Lab has collaborated with other EPFL teams and EcoCloud to design X-HEEP: a RISC-V chip which is aimed at tiny platforms with big jobs to do. The X-HEEP platform is open (…)

WaSTeLeSS – using AI and IoT to track every drop of water

carouselvideo, internetofthings, research

Water is a valuable commodity: Dr. Michael Burry, who predicted (and profited from) the sub-prime crisis, famously turned his attention to investing in water thereafter. By 2050 the United Nations World Water Development Report predicts that nearly 6 billion people will suffer from clean water scarcity. In an effort to minimize the waste of water, (…)
