Enabling fairer data clusters for machine learning
Their findings reduce average job completion time by up to 95% when the system load is high, while treating every job fairly.
Analytical model predicts exactly how much a piece of hardware will speed up data centers
The analytical model, called Accelerometer, can be applied in the early stages of an accelerator’s design to predict its effectiveness before ever being installed.
Programming around Moore's Law with automatic code translation
Most programs in use today have to be completely rewritten at a very low level to reap the benefits of hardware acceleration. This system demonstrates how to make that translation automatic.
New tool combats evolving internet censorship methods
Technology pioneered by Michigan researchers can circumvent many effective website blocking tools
CSE faculty bring significant showing to major systems conference
Researchers designed three new systems to speed up code at several key bottlenecks.

Harsha Madhyastha selected for Google Faculty Award
Prof. Madhyastha seeks to enable the cloud provider to monitor traffic on behalf of all the web services hosted on its platform.
How the Net Was Won: Michigan Built the Budding InternetThe ARPANET came before it. And the World Wide Web and browser technology would later make it accessible for the masses. But in between, a small Ann Arbor-based group labored on the NSFNET in relative obscurity to build—and ultimately to save—the Internet.
Bill JoyA native Michigander, Joy co-founded Sun Microsystems and designed UNIX and Java.
