2017年6月23日下午2点,应计算机学院邀请,我院讲座教授、美国麻省大学盛博副教授在仙林校区明理楼109报告厅做了题为《Efficient System Design in Emerging Big Data Platforms and Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks》的学术报告。报告会由计算机学院院长吉根林教授主持,我校部分教师和研究生聆听了整场报告。
 Bo Sheng(盛博) is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of Massachusetts Boston. He received his Ph.D. in computer science from the College of William and Mary, and B.S. from Nanjing University. His research interests include mobile computing, big data, cloud computing, wireless networks, and security.
This talk covers our recent work in two major research directions. The first direction targets on the emerging bid data processing platforms such as Hadoop and Spark. We have developed efficient and robust resource management and job scheduling schemes with the focus on data locality, node failures and heterogeneous environments. Our experimental evaluation shows significant improvements compare to the prior work. The second research direction in our group is to build efficient smartphone Ad-Hoc networks. We have investigated two new Ad-Hoc communication models for smartphones as well as a suite of new techniques to significantly improve the efficiency. Both models target on reducing the cost of route establishment and maintenance while one model is suitable for bulk data communication and the other model is specifically for short message dissemination. At the end, I will also introduce our ongoing and future work.
报告会后,盛博教授与现场的老师同学们进行了热烈的交流,并耐心详细地解答了听众的问题。此次报告拓展了大家的视野,也为老师同学们的研究思路提供了很多启示,大家收获颇丰。
