To finish this blog post I would like to thank the people that helped through comments and discussions during the writing of the various papers composing the thesis above. I would like to thank (in alphabetical order) Christof Angermueller, Yoshua Bengio, Phil Blunsom, Yutian Chen, Roger Frigola, Shane Gu, Alex Kendall, Yingzhen Li, Rowan McAllister, Carl Rasmussen, Ilya Sutskever, Gabriel Synnaeve, Nilesh Tripuraneni, Richard Turner, Oriol Vinyals, Adrian Weller, Mark van der Wilk, Yan Wu, and many other reviewers for their helpful comments and discussions.

WSN nodes resource constrained. In order to keep the size and the cost of the nodes down, the nodes have limited processing power, memory and radio range. However, the resource constraint which has the most significant impact on many WSNs is the constraint on energy. WSN nodes are battery operated. Many wireless sensor networks are deployed in locations where battery replacement is not feasible. A node has to be discarded when the battery depletes. Energy scavenging may alleviate this problem in some sensor networks. Most WSN protocols are very conscious of the limited supply of energy, and try to conserve energy.
Students prefer to spend time on engagement at the expense of serious academic work. Recalling the words from Lana Del Rey’s song “young and beautiful”, I think it’s normal to have a hunger for life enjoyment. But first you study, than you relax. It is a prescribed life law or let me call it as a rational approach to time management building. So, for those who want to succeed in writing a thesis, PhD work or a research paper, it’d better to start with planning. To cope with this fundamental work it is necessary to keep track of noting all the sources from which information was taken. Citations and references list must be given sufficient notice, because even a petty carelessness may lead to big problems related to academic dishonesty. Anyway, it’s always better to do everything possible to prevent plagiarism, than to be hard hit by this sudden disaster. Besides, there’s an opportunity to scan your paper against eBooks and web pages with Unplag plagiarism detection engine that highlights similarities, duplicated content, and incorrect formatted citations. Simply put, you will be given a chance to remedy the petty defects on time.
