Cox, Jr. Professor of Computer Science at the School of Engineering & Applied Science, was awarded the three-year grant, which will allow his lab to zero in on how to keep cloud-based computing functioning at its best and more resilient. Jain's research will use artificial intelligence (AI) to find architectural faults in cloud systems, including slow downs in service.</p><p>Jain says the research will benefit a number of cloud applications, including telecommunications and real-time applications such as healthcare and smart grid systems.</p><p>"We're keeping track of what the latest trends and concerns are when it comes to the clouds," said Jain. "Using machine learning, we want to be able to determine if something is faulty right away, or predict when something is going to break down to prevent an outage."<br/></p><SPAN ID="__publishingReusableFragment"></SPAN><br/>Raj Jain2017-08-18T05:00:00ZProfessor Raj Jain was awarded the three-year grant, which will allow his lab to zero in on how to keep cloud-based computing functioning at its best and more resilient.
