UCLIC Research Seminar 6th of September: Gregory Abowd (Georgia Institute of Technology) on "The Internet of Materials: The next logical step or a paradigm shift?"

UCLIC Research Seminar 6th of September: Gregory Abowd (Georgia Institute of Technology) on "The Internet of Materials: The next logical step or a paradigm shift?"
Revisiting Weiser's 30-year old inspirational vision on ubiquitous computing, we see that there are three factors that today limit the kind of ubiquity that Weiser described: power, cost, and form factor. Using these factors to drive our efforts, we have created examples of computational materials…
