Co-authors were: Laura Guzman Flores, Robyn Gill, Roger Alex Clapp, Lyn Bartram, and Bob Gill. So that is 2 papers accepted at the 2014 IEEE Canada International Humanitarian Technology Conference (IHTC) in Montreal, Canada from June… Read More

Efficient Sparse Matrix Processing for Nonintrusive Load Monitoring (NILM)

Yesterday I learnt that my full co-authored (with co-authors Ivan Bajic and Fred Popowich) paper “Efficient Sparse Matrix Processing for Nonintrusive Load Monitoring (NILM)” was accepted at NILM Workshop 2014. So I am headed off to Austin, Texas at the beginning of June. Here is the paper abstract: Nonintrusive load monitoring (NILM) is a process of discerning what appliances are running within a house… Read More

NILM: What an algorithm can tell you about your energy consumption

Last night I attended the 2014 IEEE Vancouver Section Annual General Meeting. What an amazing event! Leo Del Castillo the General Manager of Xbox Devices at Microsoft was the keynote speaker talking about Xbox One. The Kinect sensor is amazing! My poster was displayed last night at the Poster Session. I tried with success to make the poster… Read More
