Research Theme
The goal of the Illinois Open Systems Laboratory is to develop mechanisms to simplify the development of scalable parallel, distributed and mobile computing systems. Such systems are open to interactions with their environment, must satisfy real-time constraints, and often affect physical processes. The approach of the laboratory is multidisciplinary research is conducted in foundational models of concurrency, programming languages, and middleware Research in the laboratory is based on the actor model of concurrent computation ( see papers on foundations ). Actors are inherently autonomous computational objects which interact with each other by sending messages. Each actor has a unique name the activity of different actors is potentially parallel. Actor systems are highly dynamic: new actors may be created and names of actors exchanged. The model is very general: processes, sensors and actuators can be modelled as actors. Over the last decade, research in the group has developed a meta-architectural model for middleware. The model has been formalized and applied to dependable computing and software architecture. Programming abstractions have been developed to represent coordination constraints real-time and requirements. The Actor model has been extended to explicitly model mobility and bounded resources, thus providing a powerful formalism for

1. Introduction
This project applies advanced, low-latency supercomputers to problems in computer vision. Click here for a photographic guide to the people in the lab (with huge images; not for the bandwidth-limited.) Early work led to the use of the Carnegie Mellon Warp machine in the Navlab robot vehicle. A Warp machine was mounted in Navlab and used for various tasks, including road following using color-based image segmentation, and also using the ALVINN neural-network system. The ALVINN work was particularly successful, because an important factor in developing the road following neural network was the availability of Warp to perform back propagation on large neural networks. More recent work has been centered around the iWarp computer developed jointly with Intel Corporation. An FTP directory of iWarp papers and iWarp home page are available.
2. Current Work
  • Managing large data structures. We (George Gusciora, Webb, and H. T. Kung) are studying how algorithms that manipulate large data structures can be mapped efficiently onto a distributed memory parallel computer, in a Ph.D. thesis expected in January 1994.

We discuss the overall algorithmic strategy, the results one can expect by comparing the whole genome assembly of Drosophila against the recently finished sequence, and advances such as high-density solid state sequencing and single molecule detection systems.

    Nicolai Petkov is the author of two books and of further 90 scientific papers. He is member of the editorial boards of Journal of Neural, Parallel and Scientific Computations (Dynamic Publ.), Parallel Algorithms and Applications (Gordon and Breach) and Real-Time Imaging (Academic Press).
    My current research focusses on computer simulations of the visual system and the development of biologically motivated image pattern recognition methods. I use functional descriptions of different types of visual neuron in the cortex to develop computational models and image processing operators. This research aims at better understanding of the brain on the one hand and the development of effective computer vision algorithms on the other hand. In the image shown to the left, a triangle is superimposed on a grating of bars. While two of the triangle's legs are very salient, the third leg which coincides with one bar of the grating is not perceived as part of the triangle at all: our visual system groups it with the grating bars rather than with the other legs of the triangle. By means of computer simulations of the function of cells in the primary visual cortex we demonstrated that this perceptual effect is due to a neural mechanism known as non-classical receptive field inhibition or surround suppression.

    Visualization in Cluster Environments - ConchViz
    This project involves a set of animation views that we have developed for illustrating the execution of parallel programs in cluster environments such as PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) and the Conch Network Computing System. The animations depict the the message passing properties of parallel applications that run in the above concurrent environments. We are in the process of providing a comprehensive system that provides animation and performance visualization support for PVM. The focus of the system will be providing a palatable framework for PVM users to create application specific animations and performance visualization. Included below are some sample preliminary views from the library that we have created for the Conch system. The visualization program is implemented using the POLKA Animation Designer's Package This view is a snapshot of our Conch Lamport view. It is a more complex version of a Feynman diagram. In this view, the Y-axis is labeled with process identifiers and the X-axis is labeled with Lamport clock values. When a message is sent, a circle appears at the appropriate logical time coordinate. Similar to the message passing view, varying circle radii are used to denote message size and the color of the circle is the same as that used in the history view. When a message is delivered, an arrow "grows" from the coordinate of where the message was sent to the correct Lamport delivery time on the receiver's timeline. Simultaneously, the circle representing the message moves along this path and then disappears. This view is similar to the history view in the information it provides, but is very useful when trying to distinguish communication patterns.
