Visitor from Japan

Last weekend we had a visitor from the Gifu University, Dr.  Satoshi Tamura. Satoshi has been working the following areas: speech signal processing, computer vision and image processing, music information processing, and natural language (text) processing. He also has been investigating multimodal information processing such as Audio-visual speech recognition, voice activity detection, speech conversion and model adaptation using speech signals as well as lip

Intel Developer Forum 2015 (IDF15)

August 18 to 20, Håkon and Jonas went to Intel Developer Forum (IDF15) in San Francisco together with Roy, Hugo, Herman and Keith from Dolphin Interconnect Solutions. I was really looking forward to this event, not only because it was in sunny California, but Håkon had in advance told me that Intel tend to not hold anything back at these events.

Building a Supercomputer with Tegra K1s and Dolphin PCI-E Interconnects

The Tegra K1 is a highly advanced SoC featuring a dual cluster CPU (quad-core high performance cluster + one low-power core) as well as a 192-core Kepler-based, CUDA compatible NVIDIA graphics processor. As a mobile processor it is therefore impressive in terms of both performance and power usage, capable of delivering some 365 GFLOPS at below 10 W. As part

Presentation Accepted for GTC 2016

Kristoffer Robin Stokke will give a 50-minute presentation on high-precision power modelling of the Tegra K1 SoC’s CPU, GPU and memory at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in April this year. His talk will focus on how the power usage of heterogeneous processing elements can be modelled generically using information about operating frequencies, hardware utilisation, rail voltages and power optimisation

Unboxing the Shield TV

We recently got our hands on a brand new NVIDIA Shield TV, the world’s first Android-driven 4K gaming and entertainment console for home and office use. The platform features the Tegra X1 System-on-Chip (SoC), the successor to the Tegra K1 SoC which was especially popular with tinkerers and hobbyists due to the Jetson-TK1 development kit. The Tegra X1 is basically

TADA Tool

  The problem of overbuffering in today’s Internet (termed as bufferbloat) has  recently drawn a great amount of attention from the research community. This  has led to the development of various active queue management (AQM) schemes.  The last years have seen a lot of effort to show the benefits of AQMs over simple  tail-drop queuing and to encourage deployment. Yet it

DigSys Pillcam Medical Workshop

The media performance group hosted a workshop for the DigSys Pillcam pre project. In this workshop we tried to bring the medical and the computer science world together. After two days of fruitful discussion and hard work we achieved this goal and we even managed to define a catalogue of abnormalities in the digestive system that are required by medical

Olvwm on Ubuntu

Olvwm (the OpenLook virtual window manager) is a positively antique window manager originally for SunOS, which I liked very much for its focus-strictly-under-mouse behaviour, thin window borders and pop-over window sliders. OpenLook was deprecated when the (in my opinion: ulgy and bloated) CDE desktop conquered the world, but modern Linux distros are capable of supporting the antique OpenLook applications again. So

LCN 2015

Leaving the cold, dark Norwegian autumn behind, Bendik and me went to Clearwater Beach in Florida for a week in October (26th to 30th) to attend the 40th Annual IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN2015) and present our paper, “Latency and fairness trade-off for thin streams using redundant data bundling in TCP“. From below 10 degrees centigrade and low air humidity
