David Atienza interviewed on the future of data centers

research, servers

Prof.  David Atienza explained to HiPEAC why sustainable computing represents much more than just energy efficiency, and argues that a much more targeted use of computing is the way forward: We need to dramatically change the way we build and use computers

Talk on monitoring and managing data centers with IoT

internetofthings, presentationvideo, research, servers

Prof. David Atienza gave a talk at the Intelligent Maintenance Conference which was held at EPFL in September. Prof. David Atienza examined the inefficient monitoring and management of data centers, and how they can impact both energy costs for the sustainability of our planet and the reliability of data center services. In this talk he (…)

x-heep – designing healthcare devices of the future

biomedical, health, internetofthings, research

The advancement of continuous healthcare monitoring depends on the development of new and more efficient ultra-low power wearable platforms as well as new algorithms. However, the teams that develop the algorithms are usually not the same as those that design the platforms, thus, optimization opportunities are often lost in the way. Not less importantly, the (…)
