Prof. David E. Culler
University of California at Berkeley/Arch Rock Corporation

Title: The Next Tier of the Internet

Abstract: Broadband communications today allow us to connect almost everybody, and soon we will have the ability to connect almost every thing of value. By networking the physical world, the next tier of the Internet can advance science, enhance productivity and security, and reduce our consumption of natural resources. The past several years of wireless sensor network research have made great strides toward this vision, with thousands of experimentalists around the world implementing novel designs in TinyOS on Berkeley motes. This talk will snapshot the progress to date and frame the challenges ahead as we advance this technology from academic prototypes and industrial stovepipes to broad commercial usage interwoven with established networking technologies.

Bio: Dr. Culler is CTO of Arch Rock Corporation and Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, an ACM Fellow, an IEEE Fellow and was selected in Scientific American's 'Top 50 Researchers' and in Technology Review's '10 Technologies that Will Change the World'. He was the Principal Investigator of the DARPA Network Embedded Systems Technology project that created the open platform for wireless sensor networks based on TinyOS, and was the founding Director of Intel Research, Berkeley. He has done seminal work on networks of small, embedded wireless devices, planetary-scale internet services, parallel computer architecture, parallel programming languages, and high performance communication, and including TinyOS, PlanetLab, Networks of Workstations (NOW), and Active Messages. He has served on Technical Advisory Boards for several companies, including Inktomi and ExpertCity (now CITRIX on-line). David received his B.A. from U.C. Berkeley in 1980, and M.S. and Ph.D. from MIT in 1985 and 1989.
