“UW researchers develop trick to help devices use less energy”

A GeekWire post on UW CSE’s EnerJ project, to be presented next week at PLDI:

“University of Washington researchers have come up with a way to reduce energy consumption in computers and mobile devices by 50 percent or more by segmenting software code into areas that require high levels of accuracy — and therefore high levels of energy — and those that don’t.”
