UW CSE in IEEE Computer annual “outlook” issue

mco20140100c1-200x273Every year IEEE Computer publishes an outlook issue that highlights emerging technologies that promise to have a significant impact on computing in the near and distant future.

The 2014 issue – just out – features “The Emergence of RF-Powered Computing” by a quartet of UW CSE/EE faculty:  Shyam Gollakota, Matt Reynolds, Josh Smith, and David Wetherall. The article describes small computers, already prototyped, that harvest energy from TV, cellular and other signals to run, sense and communicate. The Internet of Things has arrived!

Also featured in this outlook issue is an article by Karin Strauss and Doug Burger of Microsoft Research – both affiliate professors in CSE – “What the Future Holds for Solid-State Memory.”
