Software provides excellent and additional values to the designs of embedded systems, beside their hardware features. It closes the gap between user demands and hardware platforms. On the other hand, dilemma always exists on how to design software, such as modularity and optimization. In this talk, examples and solutions are presented for the designs of storage devices and embedded systems. The talk will be concluded with approaches in taking care of user perception in resource allocation for embedded systems.



Tei-Wei Kuo received his B.S.E. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from the National Taiwan University and the University of Texas at Austin in 1986 and 1994, respectively. He is a Distinguished Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering and the Executive Vice President for Academics and Research, National Taiwan University, where he served as the Department Chairman from August 2005 to July 2008. Prof. Kuo served as a Distinguished Research Fellow and the Director of the Research Center for Information Technology Innovation, Academia Sinica, between January 20, 2015, and July 31, 2016. Prof. Kuo was the Program Director of the Computer Science Division of the Ministry of Science and Technology (2013-2015) and was an executive committee member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems (2005-2017). He is an executive committee member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems and the Vice Chair of ACM SIGAPP. His expertise is embedded systems, non-volatile memory system and software, and real-time systems.

Prof. Kuo is an ACM Fellow and an IEEE Fellow. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems and serves in the editorial board of the Journal of Real-Time Systems, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, and ACM Transactions on Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems. He received the 2017 Outstanding Technical Achievement and Leadership Awards of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems, the 2017 Distinguished Leadership Award from the IEEE Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems, the TECO Award in 2015, the ROC Ten Young Outstanding Persons Award in 2004, the Distinguished Research Award from the ROC National Science Council/Ministry of Science and Technology for three times, and the Young Scholar Research Award from Academia Sinica, Taiwan, ROC, in 2001.
