Stanford Seminar - The Material of the 21st Century: Moving beyond Moore and Weiser

March 12, 2019

Gregory Abowd Georgia Tech March 8, 2019 30 years after Weiser's inspirational words on ubiquitous computing, I revisit one of the premises of that work. I propose a new era of self-sustainable computing through the development of computational materials that can be truly woven into the fabric of everyday life and create decades of inspiration for new researchers across a variety of disciplines. I will define and demonstrate some initial examples of computational materials and explain why self-sustainable computing provides a compelling vision for computing in a post-Moore's Law world.
