Boosted race trees for low energy classification

The Morning Paper

Boosted race trees for low energy classification Tzimpragos et al., We don’t talk about energy as often as we probably should on this blog, but it’s certainly true that our data centres and various IT systems consume an awful lot of it. The goal is to produce a low-energy hardware classifier for embedded applications doing local processing of sensor data. The quest for energy-efficient machine learning systems looks like it may take us to some very interesting places indeed!

Ecosystems and the Energy Source of Last Resort

The Agile Manager

One thing an ecosystem needs to survive is a constant supply of energy. The sun provides an uninterrupted supply of energy to the Earth. It can also be stored: liquefied dinosaurs are effectively stored energy that originated with the sun. Energy from the sun can be concentrated in many other forms, and accessible to parts of the planet when they're directly exposed to it. In commercial ecosystems, capital is energy.

Service Workers can save the environment!

Dean Hume

Using service workers can actually reduce the amount of energy that users that visit your website consume. but now that you are here, read on and hopefully I can at least convince you that service workers can make a (little bit) difference to energy consumption! Each HTTP request that is required for the page needs to travel over the network and in turn this consumes energy on both the server and client. Fewer HTTP requests mean less CPU usage and less energy consumed.
