During his presentation entitled, “Always-On Devices at Zero Energy: Layered Cognition in IoT,” Chris Rowen plans to discuss the explosion of new intelligent devices under the “Internet of Things” category that are stimulating both awe and fear among electronic system designers—awe for the enticing opportunities that make our world much more responsive to human needs and fear of the daunting challenge of building systems with intense computing and communication requirements.

Topics in Chris Rowen’s presentation will include:

- The concept of “layered cognition,” the rising and falling levels of system alertness in response to complex, application-centric intelligence 
- The algorithms and computing requirements that dominate the energy profile for “always-on” systems 
- New processing, system and software architectures that can enable more efficient multi-sensor fusion, voice trigger and voice command, and vision-based processing in micro-watt power budgets.
