Abstract: This talk will take a look at the future of embedded computing through the lens of the past. We will briefly review how the field came to be. We will then look at some of my group's work over the years, ranging from basic co-design algorithms through smart cameras and onto smart grids. We will then consider where the field is and should be heading. Time permitting, we will close with thoughts on commercialization and on the future of university education and research.
