Exploring Relationships In Complex Heterogeneous Networks
Current trends are showing that we are at the dawn of a new technological era, which is driven by the digitalization of everything and everyone. In this era, the utmost goal should be to create efficiency in human lives by maximizing our capability to instantly attain anything, thereby saving time. In order to realize this revolution, the network must glue together an increasingly complex landscape of applications and services, many of which are mission critical, such self-driving vehicles, or time-critical, such as human-computer interaction or financial services. This talk will discuss the opportunities and the research challenges of realizing an intelligent network able to satisfy the needs of this upcoming digital era at scale. Specifically, real-time data from end-users and infrastructure will play a significant role in learning the contextual factors of different applications, and leveraging those to proactively respond to their dynamic requirements.
