- Three papers from Ben Lee’s and Alvin Lebeck’s research groups were selected for honorable mention as IEEE micro top picks in computer architecture for 2016. Learn more »
- Yan Chen's paper, "Differentially Private Regression Diagnostics," has been selected as one of the best papers at the International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) 2016.
- Alvin Lebeck has been elevated to IEEE Fellow in recognition of his contributions to memory hierarchies and energy-efficient and parallel computing. Less than 0.1% of voting IEEE members are selected annually for elevation to fellow status. This is IEEE's highest honor.
- Jun Yang and Brett Walenz have created the iCheck website for checking the accuracy of congressional voting claims. Learn more
- Xi He, Nisarg Raval, and Ashwin Machanavajjhala won the VLDB 2016 Best Demonstration Award for "VisDPT: Visual Exploration of Differentially Private Trajectories."
- Sudeepa Roy has received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation for a project entitled "CAREER: FIREFLY - Rich Explanations for Database Queries." Total funding will be $550,000 over 5 years. This award will support Roy's research into providing automatic explanations to help a range of people harness Big Data more efficiently.
- A fast and power-efficient processor developed by Dan Sorin and George Konidaris opens up new opportunities for robots and autonomous vehicles. Learn more
- Landon Cox, Ashwin Machanavajjhala, Animesh Srivastava, and other Duke computer scientists have developed software that helps prevent inadvertent disclosure of trade secrets and other restricted information within a camera's field of view by letting users specify what others can see. Learn more »
- Songchun Fan, Seyed Zahedi, and Ben Lee's paper, "The Computational Sprinting Game," has been selected as the best paper in ASPLOS 2016.
- An HPCA 2014 paper authored by Meng Zhang, Jesse D. Bingham, John Erickson, and Daniel J. Sorin, "PVCoherence: Designing Flat Coherence Protocols for Scalable Verification," was selected as a Top Pick from the Computer Architecture Conferences by IEEE Micro. The paper shows how to design scalable cache coherence protocols in such a way that they can be formally verified to be correct for systems with an arbitrary number of caches.
- An ASPLOS 2014 paper authored by Prof. Ben Lee and Ph.D. student Seyed Majid Zahedi, "REF: Resource Elasticity Fairness with Sharing Incentives for Multiprocessors," was selected as a Top Pick from the Computer Architecture Conferences by IEEE Micro. The paper shows that Cobb-Douglas utility functions are well suited to modeling user preferences for hardware resources and presents an allocation mechanism to guarantee game-theoretic desiderata, such as sharing incentives and envy-freeness.
- Meng Zhang, Jesse Bingham, John Erickson, and Daniel Sorin received a best paper award at the 20th International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA 2014) for their paper "PVCoherence: Designing Flat Coherence Protocols for Scalable Verification."
- Sandeep Agrawal is a recipient of a 2014-2015 NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship. This award is a scholarship in the amount of $25,000 to be used to further Sandeep's research.
