Professor Hyoseung Kim received the National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) award for his work on "Real-Time Scheduling of Intelligent Applications". The CAREER is NSF's most prestigious award in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
This award will support research aimed at addressing the predictability, efficiency, and robustness challenges raised by intelligent applications with real-time constraints, which are prevalent in recent Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). The specific research thrusts are: (1) improving the real-time performance of data-intensive applications on heterogeneous embedded hardware architectures, (2) exploiting application-level requirements for data-oriented scheduling and efficient system design, and (3) enabling intelligent applications to deal with software infrastructure failures and dynamic environmental conditions.
