Cloud-Sea Computing on Zettabytes of Data

Zhiwei Xu, Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences

By 2020, the world will need to utilize zettabtypes of data. In 2012, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) launched a 10-year strategic research project called NICT (new generation of ICT) to face this big data challenge. This talk presents the motivations and research thrusts of the CAS NICT project, including functional sensing, the REST 2.0 cloud-sea computing architecture, and power-efficient systems technology.
