I am in Room 314 in Rekhi Hall, arms spread wide, tippy-toeing across a rickety board and trying oh-so-hard not to fall into a gaping hole beneath my feet. One misstep and I join the dead cow at the bottom of the pit.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers at the University at Buffalo and Amrita University in India have developed the framework for a smart environment that can track people's whereabouts without the use of invasive technologies such as constant filming or radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. The new tracking method could improve safety and security in nursing homes, hospitals and other closed spaces while providing occupants with freedom from continuous surveillance.

Language barrier: To take advantage of multicore chips, programmers will need fundamentally new software
For decades, computer scientists tried to develop software that could automatically turn a conventional computer program -- a long sequence of instructions intended to be executed in order -- into a parallel program -- multiple sets of instructions that can be executed at the same time. Now, most agree that that was a forlorn hope: Code that can be parallelized is too hard to recognize, and the means for parallelizing it are too diverse and context-dependent. "If you want to get parallel performance, you have to start writing parallel code," says MIT computer-science professor Saman Amarasinghe. And MIT researchers are investigating a host ...
