The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) blog spotlights the work of Ioan Raicu, assistant professor of computer science at IIT, and a research faculty member in the Math and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory.
As the article, “Towards Big Data Computing at Extreme-Scales,”explains, Raicu focuses on the relatively new distributed systems paradigm called Many-Task Computing (MTC). MTC aims to bridge the gap between two predominant paradigms, High-Throughput Computing (HTC) and High-Performance Computing (HPC). His work has focused on defining and exploring both the theory and practical aspects of realizing MTC (with special emphasis on data-intensive computing) across a wide range of large-scale distributed systems, ranging from many-core systems, clusters, grids, and clouds to supercomputers.
Raicu is a former CCC Innovation Fellow.
