Informational properties of networks under communication constraints

Project description

A paradigm shift for information networks

Future networks need to be responsive, flexible and fast because demands are increasing from both humans and machines. To this end, the EU is investing in innovative network technologies. The EU-funded InfoNet project will investigate the fundamental information properties of networks under communication constraints. Specifically, it will step away from the assumption that a network is fully connected and that the information it carries is a commodity. Instead, it will consider a new paradigm where limitations on network connectivity are imposed and pieces of information can be combined. Examples include storage systems in which the links are established by physical proximity or system architecture as well as low-power wide-area networks for IoT applications. The findings will yield insights into and design rules for the construction of information networks.
