About the Event
Did you hear the one about how many batteries it takes to turn on a Turing machine? None! It's outside the model of computation. Yet it's rather difficult to compute without power. This problem is particularly poignant on tiny embedded systems that resemble smart dust. Batteries overshadow the size of the computer itself. So why not remove the battery?
Kevin Fu is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and adjunct Associate Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Prof. Fu aims to make embedded computer systems smarter: better security and safety, reduced energy consumption, faster performance. His contributions on trustworthy medical devices and computational RFIDs appear at ACM ASPLOS, ACM SIGCOMM, ACM TECS, ACM/USENIX HotPower, ACM/USENIX MobiSys, IEEE Security & Privacy, IEEE TC, USENIX FAST, USENIX Security, Financial
Cryptography, and the Institute of Medicine.
