Abstract
The technical objective of this project is to develop a prototype of a face recognition application in a cloud computing environment utilizing MBARK as the middleware. The application will have a client piece that will run on a mobile device such as a laptop and a server piece that will run on a higher-performance computing cluster. The specific objectives of this development project can be enumerated as follows: 1. Implement a distributed MBARK system that allows local functions, such as data capture and filtering, to pass data and control streams to/from remote server functions such as compute-intensive analysis and database matching.
