Ugur Çetintemel, David Laidlaw and Stan Zdonik are part of the newly launched Intel Science and Technology Center (ISTC) in Big Data. The center is based at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. The center is primarily affiliated with the Intel Parallel Computing Lab.
The goal of the ISTC is to produce new data management systems and architectures that can help users process “big data” - data collections that are too big, growing too fast, or are too complex for existing information technology systems to handle. The center will also demonstrate the effectiveness of these solutions on real applications in science, engineering, and medicine.
