Energy and Computation: Flops/Watt and Watts/FlopMay 10, 2006
The Bartos Theater Building E15 MIT
This event will explore emerging activities at the boundary between energy and computation in both directions: reducing energy use in computation, and applying computation to improve energy conversion and consumption. Attendance is open based on available space; to register contact <energy@cba.mit.edu>.
