11/06/2014 - 18:00 Since CSL professor Wen-mei Hwu co-founded MulticoreWare six years ago, the company has grown from a small startup to the leading provider of GPU-accelerated software and GPU-computing infrastructure software, used by such tech giants as Amazon and Google.
11/05/2014 - 18:00 A team led by Professor Yoram Bresler has won an almost $950,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to develop more efficient algorithms and computational methods for analyzing Big Data and extracting useful information.
11/04/2014 - 18:00 J. Gary Eden was awarded a $917,744 grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) to fund his purchase of laser and gas analytical equipment. He plans to use this equipment to continue his research of microplasma devices.
11/03/2014 - 18:00 With a tight gubernatorial race in Illinois, voters are being bombarded today with TV ads, yard signs and robo calls. But what if candidates could use their campaign dollars to subtlety influence your vote on social media? It might as simple as paying to promote the status of a friend who just voted or downplaying negative status posts on Facebook.
11/03/2014 - 18:00 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Professor Wen-mei W. Hwu has been named the 2014 recipient of the IEEE Computer Society B. Ramakrishna Rau Award for his work in Instruction-Level Parallelism.
11/02/2014 - 18:00 It's tense in the situation room. A cyber attack on the electrical grid in New York City has plunged Manhattan into darkness on a day that happens to be the coldest in the year. Concurrently, the cellular phone network has been attacked, silencing smartphones and sowing confusion and panic. A foreign power has claimed responsibility for the attacks and says more are coming. Your job is to look at geopolitical factors, intelligence feeds, military movements and clues in cyberspace to predict what may be happening next. Your goal is to make a recommendation to the President.
10/26/2014 - 19:00 While the cost of data storage has gone down in recent years, the difficulty of finding a storage medium that is nonvolatile, durable and large enough to meet today’s big data needs has remained.
10/21/2014 - 19:00 When an energy company sustains a cyber attack, control system operators must quickly identify, isolate and reroute around the affected network areas in order to maintain critical energy delivery functions. A global view of all communication flows would make that task much easier, but unfortunately, such an overview map isn’t available to the energy sector at this time.
10/20/2014 - 19:00 When Hurricane Sandy struck the east coast in late October 2012, the “superstorm” disrupted traffic in New York City for more than five days, but the evacuation proceeded relatively efficiently with only minor delays, according to transportation researchers at the University of Illinois.
10/13/2014 - 19:00 Illinois engineering professors and Brown University biology professors have collaborated together to develop bat-inspired robots to supervise construction sites.
10/09/2014 - 19:00 ECE PhD candidate Avinash Kumar is attempting to revolutionize camera calibration, and his peers have taken notice. Kumar was recently awarded the IAPR Piero Zamperoni Best Student Paper Award at the International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR) conference in Stockholm, Sweden.
10/08/2014 - 19:00 The $9.3M award is part of the CompGen initiative, a collaboration of CSL and the Institute for Genomic Biology.
Illinois wins $1.5 million NSF “Data Infrastructure Building Blocks” grant to accelerate materials-to-device processes10/07/2014 - 19:00 Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are seeking to accelerate the technology transfer processes through a new T2C2 framework.
10/05/2014 - 19:00 Professor Emeritus Donald L. Bitzer, the co-inventor of PLATO, will be the featured speaker at a special event, “Engineering Education @Illinois: Past, Present & Future” at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8, in 1005 Beckman Institute. The free event is sponsored by the Academy for Excellence in Engineering Education (AE3). The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology is located at 405 N. Mathews Avenue, Urbana.
10/01/2014 - 19:00 PETSc has transformed the way large-scale software libraries are developed, supported, and used within the CS&E community.
09/24/2014 - 19:00 While many mobile device applications are backed by cloud servers and storage, the current programming technology is tedious and potentially error prone. According to Illinois’ Gul Agha, developing individual application parts is not difficult, but developing an entire system is far more challenging and there’s currently no way to map user-level application code to the computational resources available in a flexible way.
09/11/2014 - 19:00 The concept of doing research may be a daunting task for undergraduates, who typically have little technical experience. However, the Promoting Undergraduate Research in Engineering (PURE) program has been designed to give freshmen and sophomores a chance to work as mentee on a research project with a graduate student.
