A FORUM NUMERICA Seminar by Pr Katia Obraczka (UC Santa Cruz, USA) - 26/07/2018

Abstract:
The Internet has revolutionized the way we work, play, learn, shop, move, etc. Still, the Internet revolution is likely to continue, especially given wireless communication technology advances (e.g., 5G, D2D, etc.), as well as the availability of smaller devices with increasing computation and storage capabilities. This talk will examine some of the main challenges posed by future internets and will describe some research projects motivated by these challenges that are being conducted at the University of California Santa Cruz's Internetworking Research Group (i-NRG).
