Title: The Next Transformation in Computing: From the Cloud to the Global-Scale Edge

Abstract:
The computing paradigms that support data-intensive applications have been radically transformed many times in the past few decades. In this talk, we will take a closer look at these transformations to have a better understanding of the patterns that drive them. With this understanding, we project how computing evolves to shape the new transformation in computing. We will observe how cloud computing is evolving to be more distributed and decentralized beyond traditional data centers and how many emerging technologies -- such as blockchain and serverless -- are precursors to this new computing paradigm. Getting ready for this transformation in computing requires reevaluating and redesigning current data management principles. I will talk about some of our work at EdgeLab to achieve this goal. This includes our work on Dynamic Paxos, AnyLog, and WedgeChain to build a distributed and decentralized data infrastructure for the Global-Scale Edge.

Bio: Faisal Nawab is an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at UC Irvine. He received his Ph.D. from UC Santa Barbara where he won the Computer Science Department's best dissertation award. His research lies at the intersection of Big Data management and distributed Cloud Computing systems. Specifically, he works on data management systems that accelerate and support global connectivity especially in the domains of cloud and mobile applications and the Internet of Things.
