Location: 465 Soda Hall
Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

The mission of the RAD Lab (Reliable Adaptive Distributed systems) is to create the technology to enable a single person to create and operate the next great Internet service. That is, to create a service like Ebay without having to build a company the size of Ebay. Leaders in machine learning, networking, and systems have formed interdisciplinary teams to fulfill this mission. If successful, we hope to enable a Fortune 1 million of Internet entrepreneurs.

The RAD Lab involves 7 faculty, 30 graduate students, and a few staff. To increase interdisciplinary interactions, we remodeled the south end of the 4th floor of Soda Hall to create an open collaborative environment. The new space overshot this target, and as we believe it is now accelerating our research.

Our funding comes primarily from industry and state matching programs, with our foundation partners being Google, Microsoft, and Sun Microsystems and with our affiliate members are Amazon Web Services, Cisco Systems, Facebook, HP, IBM, NetApp,VMware and Siemens.
