Instructors

  • Milos Prvulovic - Dr Prvulovic's research focuses on architectural (hardware) support for program monitoring, debugging, and security, particularly in multi-threaded and multi-core systems. In general, the goal of his research is to make both hardware and software more reliable and secure. He is the area coordinator for the Computer Architecture area in the School of Computer Science at Georgia Tech. Dr. Prvulovic received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003. He is a Senior Member of ACM and IEEE and is currently serving as the Secretary-Treasurer of ACM SIGMICRO.

Le Georgia Institute of Technology, connu aussi sous le nom de Georgia Tech ou GT, est une université de recherche mixte publique, et située à Atlanta (Géorgie), aux États-Unis. Elle fait partie du réseau plus large du Système universitaire de Géorgie (en anglais, University System of Georgia). Georgia Tech possède des antennes à Savannah (Géorgie, États-Unis), Metz (France), Athlone (Irlande), Shanghai (Chine), et Singapour.

Georgia Tech a acquis sa réputation grâce à ses programmes d'ingénierie et d'informatique, ceux-ci figurant parmi les meilleurs du monde5,6. L'offre de formation est complétée par des programmes dans les domaines des sciences, de l'architecture, des sciences humaines et du management.

Platform

Udacity est une entreprise fondé par Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, et Mike Sokolsky offrant cours en ligne ouvert et massif.

Selon Thrun, l'origine du nom Udacity vient de la volonté de l'entreprise d'être "audacieux pour vous, l'étudiant ". Bien que Udacity se concentrait à l'origine sur une offre de cours universitaires, la plateforme se concentre désormais plus sur de formations destinés aux professionnels.
