Supporting end-user control of complex computing environments
This project is developing techniques that will allow users to help each other create and maintain configurations. Specifically, the team is developing the Collaborative Configuration Service (CCS)—a facility that collects configuration information from various users and matches similar users with each other for the purpose of diagnosing problems, providing help, and recommending new functionality.
