As rising volumes of data play an increasingly central role in society, data-intensive computing systems must evolve. The mission of the Future Data Systems group (part of the Stanford DAWN project and the Stanford Infolab) is to 1.) design and build post-database systems that enable next-generation data-intensive applications and 2.) train world-class systems researchers.
We are interested in two types of systems:
We have a growing number of ongoing projects on topics including:
Our group's research is generously supported in part by the affiliate members and other supporters of the Stanford DAWN project—Ant Financial, Intel, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, NEC, SAP, Teradata, and VMware—as well as Toyota, Keysight Technologies, Northrop Grumman, and NetApp. If you are interested in sharing interesting data with us or supporting our research, please contact us.
We are always looking for talented, excitable, and hungry students who want to help shape the future of data-intensive computing. Interested? Apply to the Stanford CS department through the Stanford Graduate Admissions site. (More info.) If you are already a Stanford student, please send us an email. If you are not a student and are not applying to the graduate program but are interested in doing research in our group, please fill out our questionnaire.
