PRIME: Proximity Remoting for Instantaneous Multi-device ExecutionMobile devices are all around us; every day, we encounter not only our own devices, but also those of family, friends and new acquaintances. Yet when we turn on our smartphone or tablet, few apps are written with co-located devices in mind. Rather, the mode is isolation: one app, one device.Recent standards such as Miracast, WiDi and Apple AirPlay have embarked to address these silos of interaction for the limited case of one-to-one screen streaming. With support for these standards in recent Android and...

GlimpseWe see a new wave of innovations in mobile computing that are based on capturing and processing a user’s visual experience in real-time, on the go. While this is cool, several major hurdles need to be overcome first. For example, today the energy and computing cost of continuously capturing, processing and analyzing our visual experience is challenging. In Project Glimpse we are investigating and pursuing experimental and analytical characterization of image sensors, high bandwidth and low-jitter...

FaST-LMM and Windows Azure Put Genetics Research on Faster TrackAlthough researchers are able to collect, store, and analyze tremendous volumes of data, technological and storage limitations can severely impact the speed at which these data can be analyzed. A new algorithm developed by Microsoft Research, FaST-LMM, runs on Windows Azure in the cloud and expedites analysis time—reducing processing periods from years to just days or hours. An early application of FaST-LMM and Windows Azure helps researchers analyze data for the genetic causes of common diseases.

Generations of computer programmers are taught to prefetch network objects in computer science classes. In practice, prefetching can be harmful to the user's wallet when she is on a limited or pay-per-byte cellular data plan. Many popular, professionally-written smartphone apps today prefetch large amounts of network data that the typical user may never use. Procrastinator automatically decides when to fetch each network object that an app requests. This decision is made based on whether the user is on...
