Feedback control as a design framework for computing systems components

Decanato - Facoltà di scienze informatiche

Data d'inizio: 23 Novembre 2011

Data di fine: 24 Novembre 2011

The Faculty of Informatics is pleased to announce a seminar given by Martina Maggio

TITLE: Feedback control as a design framework for computing systems components
DATE: Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011
PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room SI-008, Informatics building (Via G. Buffi 13)
TIME: 16.30

ABSTRACT:
The talk deals with a novel use of the systems and control theory in the domain of computing systems. To date, said theory was applied essentially to close loops around systems already designed and functional, in a view to having them preserve some performance level while reacting to unpredicted conditions. An alternative approach, sometimes leading to significant improvements, is to directly apply system-theoretical principles to design part of computing systems, that in fact can be viewed as controllers in nature. After an overview on the matter and on the mentioned perspective shift, the talk will go though some representative examples of what problems can be tackled and of what can be achieved for them, in terms of simplicity and formal assessment. In the examples, the redesign induced by the new approach is evidenced and included in critical comparisons with alternative design and control frameworks.

BIO:
Martina Maggio is a PhD candidate at Politecnico di Milano, advised by Professor Alberto Leva. She is also a former visiting student of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was supervised by Professor Anant Agarwal. Her PhD research deals with feedback control of computing systems, trying to enhance computational lightness of the proposed solutions through a possibly new design of system components.

HOST: Prof. Mauro Pezzè
