    Berkeley Lab Day Berkeley Lab Day Presentation Transcript

    • Intel Berkeley Extreme Interconnected Systems Lablet http:// David Culler UCB EECS & Academic Director Shattuck and Center, 13 th floor, between BWRC and ICSI, great view!
    • New model for ind/acad collaboration
      • Key challenges ahead in EECS are fundamentally problems of scale
        • require level of investigation and of engineering that is beyond what is sustainable within the university and beyond what a company can commit outside product scope
        • industry possesses key technology and expertise
        • requires insights from many perspectives
      • A new lab stucture built around deep research collaboration and intimate ties to the EECS department
        • industry contributes substantial effort of high quality
        • projects span boundaries
        • faculty co-direct lab
        • student / faculty cycles drive the continuous motion
      • Operate in uniquely open fashion
    • Intel Research Network of Lablets Concept
      • Network of small labs working closely with top computer science departments around the world on deeply collaborative projects.
        • currently Berkeley, Washington, CMU
      • Complement the corporate labs
        • explore off the roadmap, long range, high risk
      • Complement the external research council
        • drive projects of significant scale and impact
      • Expand the channel
        • bidirectional transfer of people, ideas, technology
    • Mission for the Network of Labs
      • Bold new form of Industry-University collaboration that reflects the changing nature of the information age.
      • Conduct the highest quality research in emerging, important areas of CS and IT.
      • Join the unique strengths of Universities and the company in concurrent, collaborative efforts that are both broad in scope and deeply penetrating in exploration.
      • Operate in a uniquely open fashion, promoting a powerful, bidirectional exchange of groundbreaking ideas, technology, and people.
      • Leadership role in the creation of new research ecosystems spanning the continuum from academic study to product development.
      • Labs will be project-focused with an active, constantly evolving agenda involving Intel researchers, University researchers, and members of the larger research community
    • Scale and structure
      • Active day-to-day involvement
      • 15 full-time Intel Researchers and Engineers
      • ~5 part-time Intel folks
      • 20 faculty, students, visitors, research consultants
      • Two-in-a-box co-directors
      • University Direction + Intel Director
      • Report to David Tennenhouse, VP Research
      • Project focused
      • ~6-year projects starting about every two years
    • Berkeley Focus
      • Extreme Interconnected Systems
      • Invent, develop, explore, analyze, and understand highly interconnected systems at the extremes of the computing and networking spectrum - the very large, the very small, and the very numerous
      • Do leading-edge Computer Science on problems of scale, cutting across traditional areas of architecture, operating systems, networks, and languages to enable a wide range of explorations in ubiquitous computing, both embedded in the environment or carried easily on moving objects and people
    • Areas of Emphasis
      • “ endonets”
        • dense, fine-grain networked systems deeply embedded in or interacting with physical environment
        • sensor networks
        • ubiquitous computing architectures
        • computational fabrics, surfaces, structures
      • “ exonets”
        • broad coverage networked systems at societal scale
        • world-wide storage systems
        • composable infrastructure services
        • massive servers for millions of users
    • Initial Projects
      • Open experimental platform for Networked Embedded Systems Technology (NEST)
        • collaborative with UCB DARPA project
        • supporting 10 other DARPA projects
      • Goal:
        • new approach to networked embedded SW
