   编者按:小图是今年夏天惠普实验室的实习生中最特殊的一个。她带着几乎全优的高中成绩,就以高中生的身份便进入了惠普智能架构实验室工作实习。“在这里,你可以从其他实习生的工作中学到各种知识,而且这些知识都是以前你从未想象过的。”现在的小图通过在惠普实验室的实习更加坚定了在计算机领域发展的信念。祝福她!

    我们这次的采访对象是苏珊图(Susan Tu),她曾在惠普智能架构实验室工作。
    We wrap up the series with an interview with Susan Tu who was recruited by the Intelligent Infrastructure Lab.
   

 

     小图是今年夏天惠普实验室的实习生中最特殊的一个。带着几乎全优的高中成绩,小图马上就要进入大学学习了。“这里的很多实习生都跟我的高中老师们年纪相仿。” 小图开玩笑地说。小图生长于加利福尼亚州的米尔皮塔斯市,那里距离惠普实验室的帕罗奥图校园区很近。她毕业于加利福尼亚州圣荷西市哈克中学,将于今年秋季进入斯坦福大学学习。在加入惠普实验室之前,她十分热爱徒步旅行并在学校各种组织中参与绘图工作。
    Susan Tu is unique among HP Labs’ interns this summer.  While her peers are mostly already in graduate school, Tu has yet to enter college. “A lot of the other interns here are the same age as the youngest high school teacher I had,” she jokes.  Tu grew up near HP Labs’ Palo Alto campus in Milpitas, CA.  She graduated this summer from the Harker School in San Jose, CA and will be entering Stanford University this fall.  When she’s not interning, Tu’s a keen hiker and enjoys contributing graphic design work to various organizations at her school.

 


    惠普:你是如何成为惠普实验室实习生的?
    小图:很幸运,我所在的高中拥有专门的计算机课程,去年他们开设了一门新的关于数字信号传输的课程。来自惠普的研究学者Ronald Schafer先生,也就是我们教科书的作者,曾经去给我们上过一堂课。当时我在寻找一些暑假可做的事情,因此我给Ron发了电子邮件,给他发送了我的简历,并且致电我的导师Dejan Milojicic,是他推荐我来这里当实习生的。
    HP: How did you end up interning at HP Labs?
    My high school was lucky enough to have a computer science department and last year there was a new course on digital signal processing. It turned out that the author of our textbook was Ronald Schafer, who’s a researcher here, and he came to our class to give a guest lecture. I was looking for something to do this summer and I like computer science, so I emailed Ron my resume Then I spoke with my principal mentor Dejan Milojicic on the phone and he invited me to intern.

 

 

    惠普:你在这里的工作是什么?
    小图:我主要是研究云技术中持续服务和高质量服务的折衷方案。我使用开放源代码的软件OpenStack去扩展应用程序编程接口(API)。这样一来,虚拟计算机就会分别进入服务质量优先和持续服务优先的程序。在可持续性生态系统研究小组工作的导师,在为开放卷云(OpenCirrus)开发持续监视工具。我也是这个项目中的一员,主要负责将之与OpenStack软件相结合。这样使用者就可以通过OpenStack应用程序编程接口(API)查看到他们想要的信息。如:每台虚拟计算机所产生的二氧化碳数量。我还利用指导者提供的数据做了相关的模拟实验。
    HP: What have you been working on?
    I’m looking at the trade-offs between sustainability and quality of service in cloud computing. I’ve been using OpenStack, the open source cloud software, and extending its API so that virtual machines can be deployed into either a quality of service-prioritized pool or a sustainability-prioritized pool. My other mentors, who are in the Sustainable Ecosystems Research Group, and Dejan had worked on a sustainability monitoring tool for Opencirrus. I took part of that project and integrated it with OpenStack so a user can see, using the Openstack API, information such as how much CO2 is being generated by each virtual machine. I’ve also been working on a related simulation using some data from one of my mentors.

 


    惠普:这些东西学起来困难吗?
    小图:我从来都没有使用过Linux操作系统,因此适应起来需要一段时间。我的导师对我的帮助非常大,还有另外一名实习生,他在网络与交流实验室也研究OpenStack,他也给了我很多帮助。
    HP: Was that a pretty steep learning curve?
    Well, I came here with having had no experience with Linux at all, so it took a while to catch up. My mentors were really helpful though and another intern who’s also working with OpenStack in the Networking and Communications Lab helped me too.

 

 

    惠普:在这里实习有什么使你惊讶的地方?
    小图:让我惊讶的是计算机科学中竟然有如此多的不同的研究方向。在学校中,我们只学习了关于计算机的理论知识。在这里,你可以从其他实习生的工作中学到各种知识,而且这些知识都是以前你从未想象过的。
    HP: What has surprised you about interning here?
It’s been really eye-opening in terms of the amount of different research that goes on in computer science. In school we take classes and just learn the concepts. Here, when you see what the other interns are working on, you learn about all kinds of things you’d never thought of.

 

 

    惠普:这段实习是否改变了你的大学计划或者职业计划?
    小图:参加惠普实验室实习的部分原因是我的很多朋友都参加了实习活动。他们之中的一部分人在实习后都希望进入那个领域继续发展;另外一部分人则通过实习确定自己以后完全不想进入那个领域。而我现在很希望在这一领域发展,我希望能够在斯坦福大学中学习计算机科学专业。
    HP: Has this internship changed your college or career plans?
Part of the reason I wanted to do the internship was that I have a lot of friends who’ve done internships and then really wanted to go into that field and others who decided after their internships that they don’t want to go in that direction at all. Right now, I’m pretty positive about going in this direction! I’m still hoping to major in Computer Science at Stanford.
