Philippe Bonnet is professor at the IT University of Copenhagen. He is a Marie Curie fellow with a track record of successful research projects under DARPA, NSF (while a research associate at Cornell University), EU and Danish funding (first at U.Copenhagen and since 2009 at ITU). Philippe is an experimental computer scientist with a background in database management. For twenty years, he has explored the design, implementation and evaluation of database systems in the context of successive generations of computer classes in particular wireless sensor networks and cloud computing. In 2011-15, Philippe managed the CLyDE project that promoted open-channel SSDs and resulted in two contributions to the Linux kernel and two patents. Currently, Philippe's research focuses on programmable storage devices. Philippe is co-author of a reference book on database tuning together with Dennis Shasha from New York University.
When the network is the bottleneck, it is necessary to minimize data movement by processing data where it resides (in situ) or as it moves through the network (in-network). This is specially relevant in the context of database systems that ingest and process increasingly large volumes of data with stricter latency and energy consumption requirements. In this keynote, I will review the near-data (in situ) and in-network (in transit) processing techniques developed in the database community over the last two decades for various classes of computer systems. I will discuss lessons learned and perspectives for Future Internet Architectures and decentralized clouds.
