We describe an approach for how to design an essentially more scalable, flexible and resilient electric power infrastructure – one that encourages efficient use, integrates local generation, and manages demand through omnipresent awareness of energy availability and use over time. We are inspired by how the Internet has revolutionized communications(More)
Buildings account for a large portion of the world's total delivered energy consumption. With smartphones becoming increasingly ubiquitous and sensor networks growing more mature, buildings can provide personalized and context-aware services to an occupant while minimizing energy consumption. This paper proposes the architecture of a Human-Building-Computer(More)
Office buildings contain large sensor network deployments to monitor and maintain their internal environment. They also consume a significant amount of energy. This paper proposes the use of the use of horizontal layering, rather than the current vertical-solution approach, to expose the building data plane and enable interoporable software services and(More)
Much of the functional sequence in the human genome is devoted to regulatory elements , which control when during development and where in the body genes are active. Cis-regulatory elements have been shown to contribute to human evolution and disease, but the function of most regulatory elements in the human genome is unannotated, and the grammatical rules(More)
