The SEI helps advance software engineering principles and practices and serves as a national resource in software engineering, computer security, and process improvement. The SEI works closely with defense and government organizations, industry, and academia to continually improve software-intensive systems. Its core purpose is to help organizations improve their software engineering capabilities and develop or acquire the right software, defect free, within budget and on time, every time.
"We compared the five cloudlet provisioning mechanisms in terms of—from a quantitative prospective—payload size, energy consumption, and also application-ready-time, which we define as the moment from which I say I need this capability until when the cloudlet says the capability is ready. In addition to that, we did a qualitative comparison because, again it is not just about the numbers."
"HTML5 is receiving a lot of attention from developers these days because one of the promises of HTML5 is portability: the fact that you write the application once in HTML5, and all you really need to run it is a browser, right? You can run it on an Android device. You can run it on an iPhone device. "
"The capability itself just went live last April, and all of these alert originators are now adding this to their systems to try and understand what capability they need, and how they can integrate it with what they're already using. "
"We focus on partial human-in-the-loop autonomy...No one wants a system that has no ability for a human to feedback into the system. You always want to have the ability to at least look into what it's deciding."
"The moment of opportunity exists now to prevent what's going to happen in the future. We want to move further away from the reactive side of the spectrum and closer to the proactive and preventative side of the spectrum."
"Actually, we call that 'the Starbuck's scenario,' where basically you have all the resources you want. You're relaxed. You're sitting in your office, and you're offloading whatever it is. You don't need to worry about resources. At the edge, you do need to worry about that, because battery is expensive and heavy. The network is limited. You don't know if you're going to have connectivity around the clock."
