Agile Computing is an innovative approach to building distributed systems that focuses on opportunistically discovering and exploiting resources in a networked environment. The Agile Computing Middleware was designed for wireless networks with unreliable, bandwidth constrained links. Components of the middleware include Mockets - a communications library, Group Manager - a discovery service, DisService - a peer-to-peer information dissemination system, AgServe - an agile service-oriented architecture, and FlexFeed - a publish-subscribe system. This seminar will focus on efforts to date, experimental results, current work in progress, as well as future goals and vision, including exploiting notions of network science to build adaptive systems.
