Distributed Optimization Beyond Worst-Case Topologies

Project description

The worst case is a moot case when it comes to passing messages

Before the age of parallel or distributed processing (and now massively distributed systems), we had simple sequential processing using a single processor with its own memory. With parallel processing on multiple processors each with its own memory and potentially in different countries physically, the processors do not access each other's memory but communicate by so-called message passing. Ensuring messages are passed with high integrity is increasingly important as massively distributed computations in numerous sectors have become the norm. However, optimising for the worst-case scenario when that scenario will never occur practically has stymied the performance of some networks and network topologies. The EU-funded DistOpt-BydWorstCase project is working on universally optimal distributed algorithms that will overcome this bottleneck while ensuring message passing is secure and reliable.
