Design Challenge Workshop
June 13, 2014
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley Campus
Time-aware applications, computers and communications systems
There is a need for cross-discipline collaborative research to make time and timing a first-class citizen in data systems. Current systems have been developed with modules and layers that optimize data processing but degrade accurate timing. State-of-the-art systems now use timing only as a performance metric. Correctness of timing as a metric cannot currently be designed into systems independent of hardware and/or software implementations. To enable the massive growth predicted, accurate timing needs cross-disciplinary research to be integrated into these existing systems.
