Parallel Real-Time Systems for Latency-Critical Applications

Monday, February 27, 4:00 PM
Packard Lab room 466

Abstract:  Real-time systems need to provide timing guarantees for latency-critical applications that interact with humans and/or the physical environment. Examples span from cyber-physical systems, such as autonomous vehicles, avionic systems and robotics, to interactive cloud services, such as web search, stock trading, and online gaming. However, as parallel machines are becoming ubiquitous, we face challenges in designing real-time systems that can fully utilize the efficiencies of parallel computing platforms. In this talk, I will present some of my work that exploits the internal parallelism of latency-critical applications to design, analyze and implement parallel real-time systems for CPS and interactive cloud services. These systems exploit the untapped efficiencies in the parallel platforms and drastically improve the scalability and quality of service guarantees in widely used applications.

Bio:   Jing Li is a Ph.D. candidate at Washington University in St. Louis. Her interests include real-time systems, parallel computing, cyber-physical systems, and cloud computing. Her current research focuses on developing theoretical foundations and practical systems for scheduling latency-critical parallel applications, such as applications in cyber-physical systems and interactive cloud services. She has received outstanding paper awards at RTAS and ECRTS.
