My current main projects are AmpLab and Software-Defined Buildings. My students and I are investigating new ways, based on machine learning, to manage resources (processors, memory, network bandwidth, storage bandwidth) in complex distributed systems environments as well as local tier processing techniques for intelligent applications within the built environment.
A new multifaculty led project is just launched called RISE (Real-time, Intelligent, Secure, Execution) that has the potential to integrate scaled up machine learning with real-time control, with applications that include Smart Cities.
