CHI-in-a-Box Update

Did you ever wonder what makes your favorite testbed “go”? The answer is  CHameleon Infrastructure, or CHI for short – packaged as CHI-in-a-Box so that anybody can run their own testbed. We blogged about it a year or so ago, and a lot can change in a year, so this blog brings you some important updates. Not least, there is now a paper on CHI-in-a-Box so you can join the testbed as an Associate Site!

Exploring Process-in-memory Architecture for High-performance Graph Pattern Mining

Graph Pattern Mining (GPMI) applications are considered a new class of data-intensive applications -- they generate massive irregular computation workloads and pose memory access challenges, which degrade the performance and scalability significantly. Researchers at the Illinois Institute of Technology approach the problem by using the emerging process-in-memory architecture. 

Chameleon Changelog for May 2022

This month, we’re excited to announce some great usability improvements to Chameleon, new features on CHI@Edge, and some fixes for CHI-in-a-Box. We also have some great papers in PEARC! Don’t forget about the Summer with Chameleon webinar series too!

Sharing Experiments with Trovi

Learn more about Trovi, Chameleon's experiment repository, and how you can use it to collaborate on experiments and share your work. The blog also covers Trovi's integrations with Zenodo and GitHub, creating a more seamless process for running your experiment - from production to publication. 

Automated Fast-flux Detection using Machine Learning and Genetic Algorithms

Interested in protecting remote devices from malicious actors? Learn about how a researcher at the University of Missouri is approaching this problem with genetic algorithms and host fingerprinting! Also included is a YouTube video where Dr. Aksoy discusses this research.  

Summer with Chameleon

Using Chameleon for student interns, REUs or summer courses? Sign up for a series of webinars that introduce the platform, including CHI@Edge, the edge computing platform, on June 8th and 9th. 

Chameleon Changelog for April 2022

Lots of fabulous news this month! We have some big CHI@Edge updates and final CHI@Edge version 2.0 release, including a new artifact to make setting up experiments easy. We also greatly improved the implementation of Trovi, including the ability to import and export artifacts from/to git.

Conducting Research on the Edge: CHI@Edge

Learn all about CHI@Edge, Chameleon's edge computing testbed, how to interact with CHI@Edge devices, research projects that came out of our early preview and how to enroll your own device on CHI@Edge! Check out the post for links to an interactive user guide on Trovi, a YouTube video, and how to join the CHI@Edge Google Group to stay up to date with the latest news!

One Fish, Two Fish: Choosing Optimal Edge Topologies for Real-Time Autonomous Fish Surveys

Learn how researchers are pairing autonomous vehicles with Chameleon to bridge edge to cloud computation to conduct marine surveys. Featuring work presented at the 2021 Supercomputing conference, with a notebook available on Trovi that you can reproduce yourself, and a YouTube video to accompany it!
