dc.descriptionAlanson Sample joined the University of Michigan in September as an Associate Professor in Computer Science and Engineering. His research interests lie broadly in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction, wireless technology, and embedded systems. He has spent the majority of his career working in academic minded industry research labs.Most recently he was the Executive Lab Director of Disney Research in Los Angeles where he led researchers in creating new guest experiences through innovations in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Human Computer Interaction. Prior to Disney, he was a Research Scientist at Intel Labs in Hillsboro working on energy harvesting for wearable and Internet of Things applications. He also held a postdoctoral research position in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. There, he worked with doctors from the Yale School of Medicine to develop wirelessly powered and fully implantable heart pumps. Alanson received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2011 from the University of Washington. Throughout his graduate studies, he worked at Intel Research, Seattle on projects related to wireless power delivery using magnetically coupled resonance, energy harvesting as well as ubiquitous sensing and computing.en_US

dc.description.abstractHarnessing electromagnetic waves has changed how we live, work, and play. While the semiconductor industry has enabled faster, cheaper, and lower power wireless computing devices, there is the opportunity to use this underlying technology to re-examine the physical layer and explore novel sensing mechanisms, new wireless communication techniques, and innovative ways of harvesting energy and delivering power wirelessly. This talk presents an overview of ongoing projects which aims to create new interactive sensing experiences through innovations in hardware and software. Topics will include the use of signal processing techniques that turn battery-free, long-range RFID tags into minimalistic sensors, methods for turning everyday walls into touch interfaces, as well as backscatter sensor nodes that run perpetually off of harvested power.en_US
