The Intel Science and Technology Center for Cloud Computing (ISTC-CC) is an open community of leading researchers devising critical new underlying technologies for cloud computing of the future. It is headquartered at Carnegie Mellon and includes researchers from Georgia Tech, Intel, Princeton, UC-Berkeley, and the University of Washington.
Our research focuses on the foundation for future clouds and cloud applications. We are exploring system architectures, programming models, and automation mechanisms that enable dramatic efficiency, ubiquity, and productivity improvements. We organize our research into four inter-related "pillars" that hold up that foundation, enhancing efficiency/productivity via specialization and automation and focusing on dominant emerging trends toward Big Data analytics and adaptive cooperation among billions of edge devices and cloud resources. ...
