Selected Topics in Self-Organized Networks
After an overview of Deutsche Telekom Laboratories in Berlin, I will talk about a few projects: Economics-informed network design, i.e. using metrics and methods from economics to evaluate and improve the design of communication networks, with applications to vehicular networks (placement of road-side units, security), mobile ad-hoc networks (incentives for cooperation), and sensor networks (power management). Peer-to-peer social networks: How can we retain the functionality of online social networks such as Facebook, but in a decentralized way where the user keeps control of the data?
