We are the Intelligent System (IntelliSys) Lab in the Computer Science Engineering Division of Louisiana State University (LSU). Our research bridges machine learning and distributed computing systems by applying innovative machine learning techniques to understand the dynamic performance of distributed computing systems and building new systems with intelligent scheduling algorithms.
