Welcome to the Research Laboratory for Virtualized Infrastructure, Systems, and Applications (VISA) at Arizona State University (ASU).
Our team current works on a variety of exciting projects on cloud, HPC, and big data systems as well as operating systems and storage systems in general.
EuroSys’18: “RTVirt: Enabling Time-sensitive Computing on Virtualized Systems through Cross-layer CPU Scheduling”, EDGE’18: “Are Existing Knowledge Transfer Techniques Effective For Deep Learning on Edge Devices?” …
VISA Lab is a place for fun and productivity! We are looking for talented students to join us! We have multiple PhD positions with full scholarships and paid undergraduate positions.
VISA master student Tara Paranjpe won the 2nd place in the ASU Institute for Social Science Research Graduate Student Poster Competition for her interdisciplinary project on real-time stress management.
Tara Paranjpe’s Honors Thesis: “Investigating Stress Among Police Training Cadets Using Machine Learning” Sang-Hun Sim’s Master Thesis: “Exploration of Edge Machine Learning-Based Stress Prediction Using Wearable Devices”
Saman Biookaghazadeh successfully defended his PhD thesis on FPGA-Based Edge-Computing Acceleration. Congtulations! Dr. Biookaghazadeh!
The spread of the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has reached pandemic levels across the globe. There is an urgent need to develop CT apps that not only monitor but also intervene to limit COVID-19 spread while respecting user security and privacy. Sponsored by National Science Foundation, this project addresses this challenge via Federated Analytics[…]
Congratulations to Ryunu for her presentation of USENIX ATC ’19 papers on “SmartDedup: Optimizing Deduplication for Resource-constrained Devices” and Yitao for his presentation of HotEdge ’19 workshop on “Exploring the Use of Synthetic Gradients for Distributed Deep Learning across Cloud and Edge Resources”.
Arizona State University Associate Professor Ming Zhao leads the development of GEARS, a big data computing infrastructure designed for today’s demanding big data challenges.
Dr. Ming Zhao brings cloud computing service companies a step closer to providing reliable performance guarantees.
Ragini’s EDGE’18 paper, “Are Existing Knowledge Transfer Techniques Effective For Deep Learning on Edge Devices?” studies distributed deep learning techniques that exploit the knowledge trained from a deep network in the cloud to improve the speed and accuracy of small networks on the devices.
Ragini Sharma successfully defended her master thesis on “A Study on Knowledge Transfer Techniques to Support Deep Learning on Edge Devices”. Her work studies the use of knowledge transfer techniques to support distributed deep learning that exploits the knowledge from deep networks trained in the cloud to improve the accuracy and speed of small networks[…]
RTVirt is a new solution for enabling time-sensitive applications (such as emergency planning and management applications) on virtualized systems (such as public and private cloud systems) through cross-layer scheduling. It allows the two levels of schedulers on a virtualized system to communicate key scheduling information and coordinate on the scheduling decisions. It enables optimal multiprocessor[…]
