Computer science doctoral candidate Tanya Amert and Professor James Anderson won the Best Paper Award at the 24th IEEE International Symposium on Real-Time Distributed Computing, held in June 2021.

Their paper, “CUPiDRT: Detecting Improper GPU Usage in Real-Time Applications,” presents a software library created to detect the improper use of GPUs (graphics processing units) for safety-critical computer vision applications. This library was used to analyze several GPU-using sample applications available as part of OpenCV, a popular computer vision library, revealing the presence of issues and the response-time improvements to applications when such issues are corrected.
