演讲人：Prof. Lin Zhong (Rice University)
In the past seven years, we have prototyped three generations many-antenna base stations for massive MIMO, a key technology for 5G mobile data network. This experience revealed two critical computational barriers to innovations in wireless networking. First, today's basestation (or access point)-centric resource integration is bad for technology evolution and resource provisioning. Second, the prevalent use of Linux/C makes it difficult for software to eat the telecom infrastructure. This talk will focus on the second lesson and motivate the use of modern systems programming languages to realize a highly efficient, modular and eventually disappearing operating system.
Lin Zhong is Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering with Rice University. He received his B.S and M.S. from Tsinghua University and Ph.D. from Princeton University. He has been with Rice University since September 2005. At Rice, he leads the Efficient Computing Group to make computing, communication, and interfacing more efficient and effective. He and his students received the best paper awards from ACM MobileHCI, IEEE PerCom, and ACM MobiSys (3), and ACM ASPLOS. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, the Duncan Award from Rice University, and the RockStar Award from ACM SIGMOBILE. More information about his research can be found at http://www.recg.org.
