SDE049  |  Design and Development of a Comprehensive Information Technology Infrastructure for Data-intensive Applications and Analysis

Massive amount of data are being generated by man and machines at a rate much faster than what can be consumed/processed. Thus, it becomes imperative to build large-scale IT infrastructures to store, and analyze massive amounts of data. The technology is based on research on future generation cloud computing infrastructures to enable applications processing large amount of data. We aim to provide computing and storage utility much in the same way as other utilities (electricity, water) are delivered to the general population. The research is divided into three tightly integrated programmes.

SDE091  |  Using Contextual Locations for Embedding Cloud Information in the Home

Placing information at specific locations in the home provides rich and intuitive ways for people to cope with information. They leverage context and meaning of the locations within the home. However, there is no deeper investigation yet on how users would embed digital cloud-based information into various locations in their homes, partly because previous systems were not robust enough to be deployed in real settings for extended periods of time. Our technology, a system of display blocks, was developed to integrate cloud information with contextually rich physical spaces. It was designed for long battery life, robust communication and simple interactions.
