  • Catbot: Automated Triage Bot for Incident Management
    Presenter: Kanika Sabharwal, Bloomberg

    In this poster, we highlight how an automated bot can be a great solution for incident management in a company and a better solution than traditional incident management paradigms. To support our claim, we introduce Catbot, the incident management bot for our team in Bloomberg, its architecture, and how using it has had a big impact towards making incident management more effective in our team.

  • Website Performance: Cache can cost
    Presenter: Kavita Asiwal, Intuit

    Using a browser’s ability to cache resources eliminates the time to download resources and allows an application to load faster. Most engineers consider ways of using browser cache when designing a resource deployment strategy. This poster will highlight the cost of loading resources from a disk cache, the conditions when cache costs are high, and ways to reduce this cost.


Poster Session 4
Thursday, October 3, 2—4:30 p.m.

Artificial Intelligence

CREU Students – Collaborative Research Experiences for Undergraduates

DREU Students – Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Poster Session 5
Friday, October 4, 10—12:30 p.m.

Cloud Computing

Computer Architecture and Hardware Engineering

  • High-level Functional Hardware Design
    Presenter: Mahshid Shahmohammadian, Drexel University

    Low-level languages for circuit descriptions, like VHDL, easily lead to errors in large designs. Much higher-level tools like Simulink yield fewer errors but lack modularity and efficiency. We show how language features of Haskell, like high-order functions, parametric polymorphism, and type classes, can provide a high-level design experience that reduces errors without sacrificing efficiency.

  • Energy Efficient Desktop Computers
    Presenter: Jennifer Alphonse, Intel Corporation

    Over the last two decades, the number of computer systems has exponentially increased. The number of mobile users has quintupled since the early 2000s. With this increase is the increased demand for power — a valuable commodity. This poster shows how software and hardware optimizations are used to design green, energy efficient systems that meet the aggressive low power requirements of desktop computers.
