  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Fri, May 17, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

  • Supercharge Analytics Over Large IoT Data: An OS Approach

    Fri, May 17, 2019 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Felix Xiaozhu Lin, Purdue University

    Talk Title: Supercharge Analytics Over Large IoT Data: An OS Approach

    Abstract: This talk overviews our inquiry in systems software for taming large IoT data. I will describe two systems that target two complementary analytics paradigms: a data engine for processing large telemetry streams (hot data); a data store for querying large archival videos (cold data). The two systems exploit emerging hardware (e.g. 3D-stacked DRAM) as well as emerging workloads (e.g. neural networks). Both systems advance the state-of-the-art performance by orders of magnitude.

    Our experiences highlight the significance of designing OSes for specific scenarios, where the OSes play key roles: mapping AI to new hardware, dynamically configuring AI, and trading off among competing objectives.

    Biography: Felix Xiaozhu Lin is an assistant professor of Purdue ECE. He received PhD in CS from Rice and BS/MS from Tsinghua. At Purdue, he leads the Xroads systems exploration lab (XSEL) to accelerate and safeguard important computing scenarios. He and his students measure and build systems software with diverse techniques, including novel OS structures, kernel subsystem design, binary translation, and user-level runtimes. See http://felixlin.org for more information.

    He is a recipient of ASPLOS best paper award (2014), NSF CRII award (2015), Google Faculty Award (2016), and NSF CAREER award (2019).
