It has been a while since I have blogged but today I decided to rebrand my blog to fit more closely to what my research is — computational sustainability and more specifically non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM).
NILM def. tries to discern what appliance are running (and how much they consume) within a building or house just using the aggregate reading from a smart meter.
This January I was notified that a research proposal Ivan Bajic and I wrote was successful. I have funding two years of funding that focuses on NILM research. IC-IMPACTS (the India-Canada Centre for Innovative Multidisciplinary Partnerships to Accelerate Community Transformation and Sustainability) a Canada-India Research Centre of Excellence.
Stay tuned I will have two or three more announcements posted shortly…
