Computers consume energy. Big and fast computers consume a lot of energy. Computational sprinting improves efficiency, i.e., it helps computers process workloads using fewer joules. The key is to explicitly link computers (producers of results) to humans (interpreters of results). Humans should receive results when they need them; Not sooner (wastes energy) and not later, but right on time. Don't worry, more content coming soon.
Autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles hover, capture images and navigate without manual intervention. However, their processing needs are significant. Balanced, efficient and programmable computer systems are essential to realize exciting applications, such as autonomous crop scouting in agriculture.
