Facebook Awards Research Gift to Dutt and Maity

Facebook Awards Research Gift to Dutt and Maity

Facebook awarded an $80,000 research gift to Prof. Dutt and PhD student Biswadip Maity on studying hyperscale datacenter platform power management for applying lessons learned from their earlier research on mobile/embedded energy-efficient and power-aware runtime management policies to hyperscale datacenters. Facebook decided to leverage prior successes from Prof. Dutt’s research group (DRG) on self-aware energy-efficient and power-aware runtime management of mobile and embedded systems. Maity is developing adaptive, reflective energy-efficient resource managers for emerging data-centric applications. “I am extremely grateful for this research gift, and I’m excited to make Facebook datacenters more energy-efficient for billions of everyday users,” Maity said.
