The Future of the Internet Will Be
Zhang will discuss the project and his vision of how this system will integrate into homes in a presentation titled “Is Internet Protocol (IP) Going to Take Over the World of Communications?” at 6 p.m. on April 12 in Room 2.102 in the South Engineering & Computer Science Building at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).
The presentation, which is sponsored by the Department of Computer Science and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Education at UTD, is free and open to the public.
“The goal of Dr. Zhang’s project is what many hope the Internet will become,” said Dr. Da Hsuan Feng, vice president of research and graduate education at UTD, “namely, a secure, nationwide communications network that is fast, reliable, easy to use and always available. It will connect people in a way that has never been realized. I am extremely excited that we will be able to hear about the developments this project has made in just a few months and where the project is headed, especially from such a visionary as Zhang.”
Zhang is an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon, where his previous research was on Internet QoS and multicast. Algorithms and software packages that resulted from his research have been widely adopted by industry and academic institutions. Zhang received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 1996 and the Alfred Sloan Fellowship in 2000. He was the chief technical officer of Turin Networks in 2000-2003.
