Internship at PlotWatt

Three days ago I started a two month internship at a North Carolina startup called PlotWatt. PlotWatt is a fast growing software company focusing specifically on NIALM technology, with the target of reducing people's energy consumption and therefore saving money on their bills. The core principle of following algorithm development through to deployment to real users is what has driven my interest in the company, and I'm looking forward to contributing to their live NIALM systems over the summer.

Although this means I might not be posting so many details about the technical solutions I'm working on, I'm sure it'll open my mind up to a whole range of challenges I hadn't come across during my PhD. I'm planning to get back to my studies in October, so business should resume as normal around then.
