Methods, Tools, and Infrastructure
Analyzing large-scale data requires the appropriate tools—a challenge that some of the institute’s faculty members will address.
The ultimate goal is to relieve the end user from the need to understand details of a platform in order to have the computer system determine the optimal use of resources.
Parallel Computing: The more processors are working together on a problem, the more difficult it becomes to coordinate their activities and run them in parallel efficiently.
Data Forensics: Data forensics is the mining and analysis of data (data analytics) to extract dependencies and correlations between events and infer causes for undesirable symptoms in computer systems and the physical world.
Integrated Circuit Design: Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Eby Friedman is an integrated circuit designer. His work plays a foundational role in the field of data science.
