1. We Need Better Interfaces for Programming the Internet of Things


    from Andreessen Horowitz / Added

    Hardware’s in a really disruptive period right now, as we: (1) get more — but not faster — transistors (it’s the ‘end’ of Dennard scaling); and (2) move computing into sensors and other small devices in the Internet of Things. It’s all leading to specialization in hardware, from FPGAs to specialized processors and combinations. So what does this mean for software? Well, we’ll need better system design and programming abstractions. But we’ll also need to embrace making these interfaces much more programmable — and by more people, with a programming model where you don’t have to be a PhD in computer science to use it. Kathyrn McKinley is a principal researcher at Microsoft (and University of Texas at Austin professor) who focuses on programming language implementation; future architectures; and compilers that are a better match to current and future technology limits and constraints. This video was recorded as part of the a16z Academic Roundtable 2014.

        Keynote Title: Main-Memory Centric Data Management – Open Problems and Some Solutions Keynote Lecturer: Dr. Wolfgang Lehner Keynote Chair: Dr. Alexander Smirnov Presented on: 30-07-2013 Abstract: Data management systems are currently sandwiched by two major developments. On the one hand, the underlying hardware characteristics has changed dramatically within the last years by providing a huge number of cores and extremely large main memory capacities in the Terabyte range for commodity servers. While these developments have great impact on system architecture, current systems are only slowly starting to exploit these capabilities. On the other hand, more and more non-standard applications are eager to take advantage of the features provided by database management systems. Especially knowledge extraction processes interactively analyzing large, mostly empirically collected datasets are generating a huge variety of requirements to the underlying data management platform using complex statistical models. Within the keynote, I will dive into some detail with respect to different requirements giving examples from different areas. From there I will derive open problems and give some solutions to pave the way for positioning database systems as the central information hub for operational applications and analytical knowledge extraction processes.

            Keynote Title: Cyberinfrastructure for eScience and eBusiness from Clouds to Exascale Keynote Lecturer: Dr. Geoffrey Charles Fox Keynote Chair: Dr. Mohammad S. Obaidat Presented on: 27-07-2012 Abstract: We analyze scientific computing into classes of applications and their suitability for different architectures covering both compute and data analysis cases and both high end and long tail (many small) users. We identify where commodity systems (clouds) coming from eBusiness and eCommunity are appropriate and where specialized systems are needed. We cover both compute and data (storage) issues and propose an architecture for next generation Cyberinfrastructure and outline some of the research and education challenges. We discuss FutureGrid project that is a testbed for these ideas.

              Keynote Title: Hybrid Modeling Keynote Lecturer:Dr. Dimitris Karagiannis Keynote Chair: Dr. Leszek Maciaszek Presented on: 29-06-2012 Abstract: In the fast paced and complex world of new business models, powerful techniques for supporting business operations and next generation enterprise systems are widely sought-after. For this purpose, modeling methods have not only been discussed and elaborated from an academic perspective but have also been successfully deployed on an industrial scale. For taking into account the distinct requirements of individual users and organizations, the creation of new and the adaptation of existing modeling methods are today common requirements. This process, denoted as “hybrid modeling”, will be presented in this talk, based on the foundations and current challenges for the conceptualization of modeling methods, their implementation and deployment. The approach will be illustrated by reverting to a number of recent examples from the Open Models Initiative that provides an open community platform for the exchange of know-how on modeling methods, models and tools. Thereby we will revert to a meta modeling framework that has been developed at the University of Vienna. Furthermore, results of successful applications based on the ADOxx® platform in research and industrial projects will be shown.
