Software Research Project Gets $10 Million in NSF Funding

UCI team part of effort to maximize computer performance with minimal energy

UC Irvine, along with five other universities, has received a $10 million National Science Foundation grant to develop new software techniques that dramatically reduce computer hardware design and test costs while maximizing performance with minimal energy.

The UCI team is led by Chancellor’s Professor Nikil Dutt and Professor Alex Nicolau, computer scientists in the Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences and affiliates of the Center for Embedded Computer Systems. The federal grant funds projects that “promise significant advances in the computing frontier and great benefit to society.”
