As CMOS scales beyond the 45nm technology node, leakage concerns are starting to limit microprocessor performance growth. To keep dynamic power constant across process generations, traditional MOSFET scaling theory prescribes reducing supply and threshold voltages in proportion to device dimensions, a practice that induces an exponential increase in(More)
—Face recognition applications for airport security and surveillance can benefit from the collaborative coupling of mobile and cloud computing as they become widely available today. This paper discusses our work with the design and implementation of face recognition applications using our mobile-cloudlet-cloud architecture named MOCHA and its initial(More)
— A retiming algorithm is presented which includes the effects of variable register, clock distribution, and interconnect delays. These delay components are incorporated into the retiming process by assigning register electrical characteristics (REC's) to each edge in the graph representation of a synchronous circuit. A matrix, called the sequential(More)

—Current financial and regulatory pressure has provided strong incentives to institute better disease prevention, improved patient monitoring, and push U.S. healthcare into the digital era. This transition requires that data privacy be ensured for digital health data in three distinct phases: I. acquisition, II. storage, and III. computation. Each phase(More)
—As servers are placed in diverse locations in networked services today, it becomes vital to direct a client's request to the best server(s) to achieve both high performance and reliability. In this distributed setting, non-negligible latency and server availability become two major concerns, especially for highly-interactive applications. Profiling(More)
BACKGROUND The number of technical solutions for monitoring patients in their daily activities is expected to increase significantly in the near future. Blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, BMI, oxygen saturation, and electrolytes are few of the physiologic factors that will soon be available to patients and their physicians almost continuously. The(More)
—There are many incentives for healthcare providers to shift their datacenters to the cloud. However, privacy of patient health information is a major concern when processing medical data off-site. One possible solution is the use of Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE), but this solution is too slow for most applications. We present a technique that(More)
—Among the panoply of applications enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT), smart and connected health care is a particularly important one. Networked sensors, either worn on the body or embedded in our living environments, make possible the gathering of rich information indicative of our physical and mental health. Captured on a continual basis,(More)
—Intelligent systems like automatic highway traffic management, area surveillance, and geological activity monitoring require substantial data collection and processing in the field. Energy self-sustainability is a critical foundation for successful field systems that are away from the power grid infrastructure. Instead of the conventional battery-based(More)
