Scaling data centers to handle task-parallel work-loads requires balancing the cost of hardware, operations, and power. Low-power, low-core-count servers reduce costs in one of these dimensions, but may require additional nodes to provide the required quality of service or increase costs by under-utilizing memory and other resources. We show that the(More)
Ubiquitous computing environments are characterized by an unbounded amount of noise and crosstalk. In these environments, traditional methods of sound capture are insufficient, and array microphones are needed in order to obtain a clean recording of desired speech. In this work, we have designed, implemented, and tested LOUD, a novel 1020node microphone(More)
Recording speech and other sound is difficult in environments with a large amount of noise and/or crosstalk. In these environments, array microphones are needed in order to obtain a clean recording of desired speech. In this work, we have designed, implemented, and tested LOUD, a 1020-node microphone array. To the best of our knowledge and as documented by(More)
Enhanced pork loin chops, beef longissimus lumborum steaks, semimembranosus steaks (superficial and deep portions), ground beef, and ground turkey were displayed under light emitting diode (LED) and fluorescent (FLS) lighting in two multi-shelf, retail display cases with identical operating parameters.
