SATURN: An Introduction to the Internet of Materials

SATURN

We propose an Internet of Materials, where the very materials of objects and surfaces are augmented or manufactured to have computational capabilities.

Technical Perspective: The Future of Large-Scale Embedded Sensing

The system described in "SATURN: An Introduction to the Internet of Materials" works passively, energized essentially by static electricity generated as layers move relative to each other during vibration.

Technical Perspective: XNOR-Networks – Powerful but Tricky

How to produce a convolutional neural net that is small enough to run on a mobile device, and accurate enough to be worth using? The strategies in "Enabling AI at the Edge with XNOR-Networks" are the best known to date.

Enabling AI at the Edge with XNOR-Networks

Enabling AI at the Edge with XNOR-Networks

We present a novel approach to running state-of-the-art AI algorithms in edge devices, and propose two efficient approximations to standard convolutional neural networks.
