Typically an animal needs to be sedated and shaved before a veterinarian can take its vital signs. Cornell professor Edwin Kan has designed a device that uses radio waves to measure heartbeat and...Read more about No-touch sensor measures vital signs of small animals
“National Science Foundation Early Career Award”
Assistant Professor José Martínez has received a National Science Foundation Early Career Award for his proposal "Power-Performance Considerations of Thread-level Parallelism in On-chip Multicore Architectures."
Assistant Professor José Martínez has received a National Science Foundation Early Career Award for his proposal "Power-Performance Considerations of Thread-level Parallelism in On-chip Multicore Architectures." The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is NSF's "most prestigious award in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization."
As the microprocessor industry moves toward multicore solutions (several processor cores on a single chip), performance growth on these inherently power-constrained platforms will increasingly rely upon their ability to support thread-level parallelism efficiently. Martínez's project seeks to develop the necessary insights for the successful design of mechanisms that can address the unique power-performance opportunities and challenges of running parallel applications on multicore chip architectures.
