Cellular Automata on the Micron Automata Processor

Ke Wang & Kevin Skadron
A cellular automaton (CA) is a well-studied and widely used time-evolving discrete model. CAs are studied in many fields of science, such as computability theory, mathematics, physics, complexity science, theoretical biology and microstructure modeling. Some CA models have been proven to be Turing Complete, such as the elementary cellular automaton (ECA) of Rule-110 and Conways Game of Life. Micron's Automata Processor (AP) is a hardware implementation of non-deterministic finite automata (NFAs). The core feature of...

Spatial Audit of Charlottesville Parks

Mikala Reiman, Chenjie Xiong, Taylor Kitchens, Sophia Woods, Mennen Middlebrooks, Rachel Moon & Xiaoxue Jiang
Charlottesville city parks provide its community members with areas of public space, outdoor recreation, and interactive play. However, the community served is primarily those of able-bodied individuals. This audit aims to identify the environmental and designed barriers of the community with limited mobility, navigating through exclusive playspaces of Charlottesville and the greater Albemarle area. A scorecard was designed to evaluate Charlottesville parks to analyze aspects of playspaces in parks that contribute to, or detract from,...

Prefix Scan and Minimum Spanning Tree with OpenCL

Yixin Sun & Kevin Skadron
GPUs have been widely used to achieve wide data-parallelism to facilitate the execution of concurrent computations for performance and effciency. A lot of prior work have been done for CUDA, while OpenCL, as an open standard with the advantage of being able to run across multiple GPU platforms, still lacks development and effcient data primitives in its open standard libraries. This report discusses our work on constructing an effcient OpenCL implementation for parallel prefix scan...

IT – A Simple Parallel Language for Hierarchical Parallel Architectures

Muhammad Nur Yanhaona & Andrew Grimshaw
After several decades of continuous research and development of hundreds of parallel programming languages; the dominant mechanism of parallelism, unfortunately, remains to be low level threading or message passing libraries attached to sequential language cores. We are investigating an alternative parallel programming paradigm that strives to strike a balance between low-level, platform-specific programming such as in MPI, Pthreads, or CUDA; and high-level, hardware-agnostic language based approach such as in X10 or Chapel. The result is...

Prototype to Patient Treatment: Dialogue on Safety, Regulation, Privacy, Security, and Acceptability for Wearable Medical Devices — A Workshop Report

Rider Foley
Emerging technologies, such as wearable medical devices, can raise important societal concerns about regulation, privacy, safety, security, and acceptability. If left unresolved, these issues may stymie important technologies from reaching patients or result in unforeseen physical or emotional harms. It is not enough for early-stage research and development to generate fundamental knowledge and optimize technical operations without addressing societal issues, explicitly. Thus, organizations from across the medical device innovation ecosystem must work together to explore,...

Building a Case Study of Migration and the Curated Data Enterprise - Essential Elements

Joseph Salvo, Stephanie Shipp & Stephanie Zhang
The Curated Data Enterprise (CDE) is both an infrastructure and a continuously evolving ambition to empower and enable Census Bureau scientists and their data users to develop together new measures of the nation’s people, places, and economy. The CDE could be an engine for better migration and mobility data, leading to improved planning for labor market changes, emergency response, and state revenue projections. State and local economic planners and demographers need information about the interplay...

A New Approach for the 2030 Decennial Census - A 21st Century Census for a 21st Century Society

Sallie Keller & Stephanie Shipp
The founding fathers realized a census was necessary to establish the republican form of government based on the representation of the resident population as it distributed itself across the original 13 states and then spread into new territories, soon to become new states. The decennial census was a mechanism to apportion the House of Representatives based on each state's population size. It was early recognized that the massive effort to count everyone in the growing...

IT: Machine Independent Programming on Hierarchically Nested Machines

Muhammad Yanhaona & Andrew Grimshaw
Andrews in his "Concurrent Programming: Principles and Practice" expresses that "concurrent programs are to sequential programs what chess is to checkers". We believe people experienced in both kinds of programming will largely agree to his statements. But what makes parallel programming so difficult? Although there are differences of opinions, none blames the difficulty of devising a parallel algorithm, as opposed to a sequential algorithm, as the core problem. It is true that construing a parallel...

Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Software Preservation

Brandon Butler, Patricia Aufderheide, Peter Jaszi & Krista Cox
The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Software Preservation helps ensure that the subjects, products, and tools of scholarship will continue to be accessible despite evolving technology. The code expresses a consensus view of how fair use—the legal doctrine allowing the use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances—applies to core, recurring situations in software preservation. Fair use has become an increasingly vital tool for permitting cultural heritage...

FUTURE ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURES: ENGAGEMENTS WITH THE ATLANTIC COAST PIPELINE––A RESEARCH REPORT

Rider Foley, Elise Barrella, Heather Kirkvold, Rodney Wilkins, Aaron Sloss, Elise Mazur, Claire Trevisan, Jacob Rogerson, Daniel Katleman, Catherine Mohan, Victoria Lindsey & Farrah Dang
The United States is in the midst of a transition in the production and distribution of energy. This transition was, in part, instigated by technological advancements and policy mechanisms that allowed for the recovery of unconventional fossil fuels from shale formations. In parallel, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar are becoming increasingly competitive with fossil fuels. Furthermore, the nation’s population is moving away from the Northeast and Midwest regions to southeastern and western...

The Twin Cities Innovation Ecosystem: A Study of Stakeholder Perspectives

Rider Foley
In the early 1980s, the Office of Naval Research sponsored a novel research project led by Andrew Van de Ven and colleagues (1986) called The Minnesota Innovation Research Program. That study investigated thirteen subject areas from microelectronics and medical products to multi-hospital systems and programs to commercialize outer space, all of which were underway in the state. Van de Ven and colleagues (1989) issued an edited volume that shared the lessons learned from that longitudinal...
