Technical Perspective: The Power of Wi-Fi to Deliver Power

The authors of "Powering the Next Billion Devices with Wi-Fi" turn the problem of powering wireless sensor networks on its head. Instead of focusing on energy harvesting, they focus on wireless energy transfer.

Technical Perspective: Data Distribution for Fast Joins

What is the most drastic way to reduce the cost of communication for parallel data processing algorithms? This is the question studied in "Reasoning on Data Partitioning for Single-Round Multi-Join Evaluation in Massively Parallel…

Reasoning on Data Partitioning for Single-Round Multi-Join Evaluation in Massively Parallel Systems

Reasoning on Data Partitioning for Single-Round Multi-Join Evaluation in Massively Parallel Systems

We introduce a framework for reasoning about data partitioning to detect when we can avoid the data reshuffling step.
