Northeastern University Key Developments

Ultratech, Inc. Forms Research Collaboration with Northeastern University

Ultratech, Inc. announced the formation of a research collaboration with Professor Thomas J. Webster, Ph.D. at Northeastern University, to study the use of nano-materials produced through ALD for medical applications. The initial research has focused on inhibiting bacterial growth and inflammation and promoting cell and tissue growth.

IDT and Northeastern University Collaborate on Research to Improve Data Analytics, Caching and Bandwidth in Access Networks

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. announced it has entered into a research project with Northeastern University to improve data-intensive analytics and caching in support of future 5G infrastructure development. The goal of the yearlong agreement is to find ways to help organizations, like telecom companies, better manage huge volumes of data. More specifically, the researchers will seek new ways to use IDT's RapidIO low-latency interconnect technology to move and manage vast volumes of unstructured data--including video, voice, images and text--in both wireless and wireline access networks. The agreement deepens the relationship begun last year when Northeastern expanded its regional strategy to San Jose by embedding a hub campus in IDT's headquarters. Under the research partnership, three members of the Northeastern faculty and two PhD students will work with IDT engineers on the project, based at IDT's Open High-Performance Analytics and Computing (HPAC) Lab in Ottawa. The project is titled, "Distributed Low Latency Analytics and Caching Using Low Latency Fabric and Processing Nodes." The researchers will focus on "mobile edge" computing analytics in which x86, FPGA and GPU components are clustered using RapidIO interconnect. According to the agreement, "The goal of this project is to develop novel analytics and caching schemes utilizing the low latency RapidIO technology as the baseline to significantly improve the data analytics and caching performance as well as the overall bandwidth efficiency" of compute-intensive systems".

Northeastern University Reaches Three-Year Deal with Part-Time Faculty

Northeastern University announced that it has reached a three-year deal with part-time faculty, who were threatening to stop work next week over low pay and lack of benefits. As part of the deal, the university said it will provide part-time faculty with access to the university's three health plans - with a 50% contribution from Northeastern. Adjuncts will also receive "increased professional development opportunities, access to administrative support and meeting space, and discounted access to the Cabot pool and campus parking." The agreement also includes strong protections that preserve management and operational flexibility for the university. The agreement prohibits strikes and pickets during the life of the contract, which will ensure that the faculty's focus remains where it should: on student learning.
