Fine-grain power breakdown of modern out-of-order cores and its implications on Skylake-based systems
Haj-Yihia J., Yasin A., Asher Y., Mendelson A. ACM Transactions on Architecture and Code Optimization 13(4): Article No. 56, 2016. Type: Article
Extreme-scale data centers and supercomputers draw many megawatts of power to function. By today’s standards, drawing one megawatt of power roughly costs $1 million; hence, reduced power consumption is critical for these systems. Current and...
Caring through data: attending to the social and emotional experiences of health datafication
Kaziunas E., Ackerman M., Lindtner S., Lee J. CSCW 2017 (Proceedings of the 2017 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing, Portland, OR, Feb 25-Mar 1, 2017) 2260-2272, 2017. Type: Proceedings
