Extended Mission

  • Educational:
    • Seed new curricula and serve as a curricular resource for educational institutions worldwide
      • Matt Wolf – another Intel hackday (in planning)
    • Training of graduate students through internships
      • Most of our PhD students worked with external collaborators in in Summer 2013
      • Several MS students also summer interns, including at Amazon, Avaya, Google, IBM, Intel, startups, …
  • Outreach:
    • Alumni: creating new opportunities and building networks
      • Groups in Seattle, Portland, Silicon Valley, Boston, NY
    • Service to the broader community
      • Involvement in campus efforts: new GT public/private partnership for system-level research

Strategic Thrusts - Updates
  • Embedded/Operating Systems/Computer Architecture: Heterogeneous Multicore Platforms and Cloud2theEdge:
    • Intel (asymmetric multi-core platforms (big/little cores => faster/slower memories – nice results); NVIDIA GPU-based investigations, with current funding from Samsung (Kim, Yalamanchili).
    • Intel: Cloud@theEdge: edge interactions + client/cloud, addt’l engagement with UFL researchers. Qualcomm engagement. Seeking addt’lcollabs.
    • News:Intel EC ISTC effort going strong, with additional collaborations with CMU researchers; Cloud@theEdge: via summer interns (Intel); new publications on ‘power’ topics (Intel); new Android-based infrastructure; Intel NVM usage for client platforms, with MoinQureshi. NSF–funded work on cloud mobility – Ammar/Naik/Zegura; addt’lGoogle engagement.
