Outatime: Using Speculation to Enable Low-Latency Continuous Interaction for Mobile Cloud GamingGaming on phones, tablets and laptops is very popular. Cloud gaming -- where remote servers perform game execution and rendering on behalf of thin clients that simply send input and display output frames -- promises any device the ability to play any game any time. Unfortunately, the reality is that wide-area network latencies are often prohibitive; cellular, Wi-Fi and even wired residential end host round trip times (RTTs) can exceed 100ms, a threshold above which many gamers tend to deem responsiveness...

In this video, we present Irides, a stereo HMD system thatsimultaneously attains quality, responsiveness and mobility.Irides achieves this by offloading rendering work to a (possiblyWAN) high-end GPU. The HMD client is mobile andonly requires a wireless network connection, yet receives highquality and responsive visuals. Irides leverages prior workto overcome WAN latencies. It employs speculative executionon the server, and compensates for misspeculationon the client.

This demo shows an 802.11a/g sniffer implemented in Ziria. We have implemented a standard-compliant 802.11a/g transceiver in Ziria and we have deployed it to eavesdrop 802.11a/g packets in channel 1. We have configured a Netgear AP to transmit 802.11a/g packets and we show the overheard packets from the Ziria's output. We first leave the AP idle and we see a bunch of beacons. We then start connecting a Lumia phone to the AP and see a different set of packets. The output is not yet properly interfaced to...

Long-Range Planning with Time-Inconsistency: A Class of Computational Problems in Behavioral EconomicsThere are many settings where people set long-range goals and make plans to achieve them. Such long-range planning is becoming an integral of the experience in many on-line contexts, where for example people work toward reputational milestones in question-answering sites, build up to administrative roles in open-source authoring domains, and reach educational goals in on-line learning communities.In order to understand these kinds of processes, we need to enrich our models with the types of human...

ThirdEye: Tracking UserWe have built a system that would enable the tracking of physical browsing by users in indoor spaces such as retail stores. In a retail store, tracking the physical aspects of a shopper’s behaviour like walking, dwelling, gazing, reaching out, etc. might give us deep insights into the shopper’s interests. Using a combination of a first-person vision enabled by smart glasses, and inertial sensing using both the glasses and a smartphone, we have designed techniques to track each of these physical aspects of...

Centralizing national flood data in the cloud can help reduce loss of life and property Researchers from the University of Texas partnered with other researchers, federal agencies, and first responders to create the National Flood Interoperability Experiment (NFIE). They used Microsoft Azure to build a new national flood data-modeling and mapping system with the potential to provide life- and cost-saving information to the public. The goals of the NFIE include standardizing data, demonstrating a scalable solution, and helping to close the gap between national flood forecasting and local...

Video demonstrating a WiFi-like PHY implemented in Ziria. In this demo one node is sending 1600B packets continuously, with a small gap, and the other node is logging the reception of these packets. Packets are sent at the fixed data rate, first at 6 Mbps and then at 18 Mbps (we currently implemented only BPSK and QPSK modulations). There are no ACKs implemented at the moment and the receiver looks for packet ID in the packets to estimate the number of missed packets. In all cases, the packet reception...
