In a pair of papers published earlier this year, researchers showed how to start with a simple design for an AI network, grow the network by adding artificial neurons and connections, then prune away unused portions leaving a lean but highly effective final product. Growing and pruning results in software that requires a fraction of the...

Despite the dizzying array of smart technologies now defining modern life, at a deep level the programs running these gadgets come in two basic kinds: those that can steer a car and those that can finish a sentence. But in seeking smarter medical technologies (those that can detect a tumor), Princeton researchers have developed a third way forward...

To keep up with the explosive demands of the modern Internet, data centers must process more power with greater efficiency in less space. Reducing the footprint of that demand lies at the heart of the matter for Ping Wang, graduate student in electrical engineering at Princeton, who was recently awarded a top prize at one of the world's leading...
