artificial immune systems ()

Projects

Speckled Computing
To establish a research infrastructure for realising minute (around 1 cubic millimetre) semiconductor specks which can sense, compute and communicate wirelessly. Specks, scattered or sprayed on the person or surfaces, will collaborate as programmable computational networks called specknets.
