PRiME featured on Cover of New Electronics

We were recently interviewed by the New Electronics magazine, who was interested in our research on the PRiME (Power and Reliability in Many-core Embedded systems) project. As a result, it was featured as a cover-story in the 14 October 2014 issue.

Specifically to me, the article comments:
A future challenge for many core systems is that application developers will face architectures that are changing all the time and it is unrealistic to expect them to alter their code constantly to deal with this.

Dr Geoff Merrett, who is leading PRiME's application theme, said "We are trying to protect them - for instance, the runtime system will take care of jobs like deciding at what speed the processor will run. But we will also need some information from them, like what quality of service is needed in areas like video decoding.

"Generally, applications for many core systems are evolving and can be expected to be vastly different in five years; they will be selected and refined throughout PRiME's duration", he said.

Pushing embedded systems up to hundreds, even thousands, of cores will be one of the most demanding challenges the electronic industry has ever faced. If it succeeds, PRiME will have been a true pioneer of that development.

This year, I am serving as the General Co-Chair of the 1st International Workshop on Energy Neutral Sensing Systems (ENSSys 2013). The workshop will be held in conjunction with SenSys 2013 - considered to be one of the two top conferences in the areas of sensor networks and sensing systems. The workshop will be held on November 14th, in the beautiful city of Rome, Italy. We had an excellent set of submissions for the workshop, which are currently under peer review, and it is fantastic that th... [more]
