Learning to reason and answer questions about multimodal data Abstract: Enormous amounts of information are now available online in both textural and visual form; for example, in news articles, web pages, textbooks and technical documents. An important challenge in AI is to develop systems that can understand, reason about, and answer questions about this data. […]

New games, new markets: the science of cryptocurrencies and incentives Abstract: The security of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rests on assumptions about the behavior of miners. But when miners act in their self interest, could the system collapse? This is a game theory question. Mining is unlike other games we’re familiar with, and our intuitions […]

TITLE: Towards a More Stable Network Infrastructure ABSTRACT There have been many recent proposals to change the network infrastructure in order to meet different performance objectives. These changes are often difficult to deploy, either requiring specialized network switching hardware or greatly complicating network management. Rather than continuing to add new features to the network in […]

Towards Battery-Free HD Video Streaming

1 month ago
University of Washington researchers have developed the first analog video backscatter system for high-definition video streaming from low-power or battery-free devices. The new system burns as low as 250uW for HD video streaming, which is 1,000x – 10,000x less power than existing approaches, by eliminating the power-hungry components of a typical camera—enabling battery-free HD streaming […]
