Theme 3 : Services and Cloud Interaction

Theme leaders: Bilmes and Rowe

The goal of this theme is to provide technologies for scalable, adaptive composition of heterogeneous services. Specifically, we envision TerraSwarm applications that combine mobile and fixed sensor and actuator resources that interact directly with physical assets and humans; handheld communication, sensing, and computing devices; wireless and wired networking devices; and networked computing services (e.g. cloud-based computing). A key objective is to enable TerraSwarm applications to leverage large data streams through learning and inference, while preserving privacy and security.
