  • Iandola, Forrest; Saremi, Fatemeh; Abdelzaher, Tarek F.; Jayachandran, Praveen; Yener, Aylin (International Conference on Information Fusion, 2011-07)
    In networked data fusion systems, results must be produced by end-to-end deadlines. As such, latency is an important attribute contributing to quality-of-information (QoI) in these systems. A key question is how much work ...
