TITLE: Agile Computing and Adaptive Systems
SPEAKER: Niranjan Suri, Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) in Pensacola, Florida, USA
DATE: Monday, June 8th, 2009
PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room SI-006, Informatics building (Via G. Buffi 13)
TIME: 15.30
 
ABSTRACT:
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.
