Professor Satya was featured on the L8istSh9y ("Latest Shiny") podcast on December 7th, 2019 where he discussed his seminal publication from 2009 on the genesis of edge computing.
Our guest today is Dr Mahadev Satyanarayanan, Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
Satya's multi-decade research career has focused on the challenges of performance, scalability, availability and trust in information systems that reach from the cloud to the mobile edge of the Internet. In the course of this work, he has pioneered many advances in distributed systems, mobile computing, pervasive computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Most recently, his seminal 2009 publication “The Case for VM-based Cloudlets in Mobile Computing” and the ensuing research has led to the emergence of Edge Computing (also known as "Fog Computing"). Satya is the Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He received the PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon, after Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. He is a Fellow of the ACM and the IEEE.
