We propose an Internet of Materials, where the very materials of objects and surfaces are augmented or manufactured to have computational capabilities.
The system described in "SATURN: An Introduction to the Internet of Materials" works passively, energized essentially by static electricity generated as layers move relative to each other during vibration.
How to produce a convolutional neural net that is small enough to run on a mobile device, and accurate enough to be worth using? The strategies in "Enabling AI at the Edge with XNOR-Networks" are the best known to date.
We present a novel approach to running state-of-the-art AI algorithms in edge devices, and propose two efficient approximations to standard convolutional neural networks.
