Inside this issue
In The Practice of Management, Peter Drucker exhorts managers to push decision-making as close to individual workers—and as near to the last minute—as possible, an idea that has surprising parallels in computing.
Red Hat Research’s Brno Research Interest Group (RIG) and the established Red Hat Research Centre at Newcastle University have agreed to join forces and form the Europe RIG.
This year, Red Hat has become a part of the IBM PhD Fellowship program, an award program that recognizes PhD students who demonstrate both academic excellence and exceptional innovation in their research proposals. The 2021 program received hundreds of applications from 183 universities in 32 countries.
Much of the focus of IT industry diversity efforts has been at the university level and beyond. At Red Hat Czech, however, a systematic focus on mentoring in high school and even grade school is paying real dividends in gender diversity in our hiring. Like others, Red Hat initially focused its academic diversity efforts on […]
Ongoing research into user authentication in public open source repositories demonstrates the importance of usability–even for IT professionals.
We invited Red Hat Principal Kernel Engineer Toke Høiland-Jørgensen to interview Anna Brunström, currently a Full Professor and Research Manager for the Distributed Systems and Communications Research Group at Karlstad University, Sweden. Prof. Brunström has a background in distributed systems, but her main area of work over the last years has been in computer networking. Their wide-ranging conversation covers programmable networking, open data, diversity in IT fields, and more.
Researchers have tested several techniques for using software to get the most out of hardware. Find out about three promising projects that indicate the direction of this quickly changing field. It used to be simple to make computer workloads run faster. Wait eighteen months or so for more transistors consuming the same amount of power, […]
Research mentorships are the basic building block of productive industry-university relationships. We asked four mentors from around the globe to tell us about the challenges, rewards, and strategies of serving as a mentor. Linking a student’s research goals with the experience of a Red Hat software engineer is at the crux of the Red Hat […]
Data skipping and network performance improvement technologies prove their value in data-intensive applications.
Collaboration between students and engineers is shaping the future of software, hardware, and as-yet-unimagined complex computer systems. I like to read science fiction, partly as an escape from thinking about the complex real-life technology and people we work with daily in the Red Hat Research group. Our research and development projects are fascinating, but some […]
Each quarter, Red Hat Research Quarterly highlights new and ongoing research collaborations from around the world. This quarter we highlight collaborative projects in Israel, at Ariel University, Technion University, and The Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya.
