Systems + Theory @ Harvard

Despite the progress on large-scale system design and implementation in large computing companies, there is still significant value to take different academic perspectives to provide theoretical foundations to system design. Our group brings together theoretical analysis and innovations with practical know-how on real-world problems and aims to transfer our innovations back to the industry. Our current efforts are on new data structures and distributed algorithms for programmable switches and optimizations for large-scale machine learning systems. 

We are hoping to spur more fruitful collaborations between the theorists and the systems folks through Systems-Theory seminar.  The seminar schedule can be found here
