Project Qmulus: Building An Integrated Virtual Information Environment
Imagine having complete access to your own personalized environment – your notes, presentations, music, TV recordings, photo albums, recipes – from anywhere in the world, anytime. Making this dream a reality is the goal of Project Qmulus, CSAIL’s five-year, $20 million collaboration with Taiwan-based Quanta Computer Inc., the world’s largest original design manufacturer of notebook computers.
A number of Qmulus technologies are finding their way into Quanta prototypes. They include automatic speech understanding technologies for automotive navigation, smart phones, and media centers; technologies for making cameras, smart phones, and similar devices more Internet-friendly; robust wireless advances that greatly improve the throughput of wireless networks; and medical monitoring devices to help doctors dramatically change the effectiveness of how healthcare is delivered.
