Well done to Arm-ECS PhD student Tim Daulby, who has won an award for presenting his work on intermittent computing at ENSsys 2020, the 8th International Workshop on Energy Harvesting & Energy-Neutral Sensing Systems.
Tim’s paper, entitled “Exploring NVM technologies through the lens of intermittent computation“, evaluated emerging non-volatile memory technologies across a number of metrics. It explored their impact on the design of intermittent computing devices.
For this virtual event, all presenters were asked to produce a three-minute pitch video. To illustrate the comparisons, Tim took a novel approach, commenting:
“I chose to graph the comparisons on my kitchen counter using the materials available, which happened to be 200 5 pence coins I hadn’t managed to take to the bank!”
Tim produced a stop motion animation that caught the panel’s attention, resulting in the Best Pitch Video award. He continued:
“Although conferences have been very different this year, the digital event was a great opportunity to explore creative ways to share my research. I had fun making the video, and was pleased it sparked opportunities to chat with other researchers in the Zoom ‘poster room’.”
