    This is an exciting time in biomedical data science. It is now possible to collect substantial information about individuals and their encounters with health care. Our ultimate goal is to integrate this data, along with data and findings from those engaged in basic science, to identify new opportunities to improve health. Broad data sharing will further our progress towards this goal. However, data sharing poses both cultural and technological challenges. I'll discuss our work to address technical issues, including analysis approaches that lift techniques from the field of software... Read More

    Can we speed up a CPU-bound server application that does complex in-memory processing under tight latency budget, by moving most of its in-memory state to Flash storage / SSD (which is ~500x slower than RAM) ? Can we achieve crash-tolerance via online process-pair replication and consistent virtual memory snapshotting in a CPU-bound system, while incurring negligible common-case performance hit? Can we speed up petabyte-scale “big data” query processing in a cluster by orders of magnitude while simultaneously reducing cost?

    Common knowledge and years of systems research indicate... Read More

    “Micro services” refers to modernization of legacy processes with fundamentally enhanced resiliency and monitoring. How do we build a micro services ecosystem with the right frameworks that interact seamlessly and have the right fault tolerance built-in with data available for reporting, auditing, alerting and monitoring? Our seminar will overview our new micro services ecosystem for credit card acquisitions, a real-world solution to this problem in the context of Fintech.

    We will focus on the major design considerations and guiding principles for creating micro services,... Read More
