Join the latest in a series of events delivered in partnership between Southampton Solent University and the BCS’s (The Chartered Institute for IT) Hampshire branch.
Despite a decade of innovative development, and improvements in battery technology, a modern smartphone needs recharging far more often than its turn-of-the-century predecessor. Yet the blame cannot be laid at the door of hardware engineers; the problem lies in the software. Fortunately free and open source technology is racing to the rescue.
Dr Jeremy Bennett founder and Chief Executive of Embecosm will explore why developers should consider energy consumption as a primary design goal for software and provide an insight as how the energy consumption of code can be measured. We will also present details of two UK government funded projects that will see the building of open source machine learning compilers, optimized for energy efficiency.
The event is free to attend for members and non-members of the BCS with online registration via the BCS website.
