Shwetak goes to Washington

Hot on the heels of his Saturday night appearance on the field and scoreboard of Husky Stadium, UW CSE’s Shwetak Patel found his way to Washington DC to demonstrate his ElectriSense and HydroSense sustainability sensing technology to Secretary of Energy (and Nobel Laureate) Steven Chu.

Back-channel from a Department of Energy person at the meeting:  “Had the Secretary interested – made him 15 minutes late for his next meeting!  Good opportunity to discuss learning algorithms and other CS issues.”
