This talk aims to detail the recent developments in power measurement infrastructure in GNOME for hardware devices and software applications. Power panel in GNOME-Usage aims to allow the users to see which hardware devices or applications are responsible for system power consumption. These statistics are extremely useful for both users and GNOME developers.
Major objectives in this talk would include a detailed discussion on the development of the required infrastructure and multivariate regression models to determine application and hardware device power consumption. GUADEC would be a great platform to present the work done so far to the GNOME developer community and get feedback to further improve and fine-tune models towards better predictions. There are also privacy concerns attached to this data which need feedback from more developers.
