James Kurose, Department of Computer Science: “Design and Analysis of a Content-oriented Internet”

Computer scientists are re-architecting the Internet to improve video streaming, provide fast access to large data files, increase security, and introduce other advances. The newest innovation is content-oriented networks that use massive in-network storage to efficiently and opportunistically connect users with content, rather than retrieving that content from specific sites.  Professor Kurose, a leading researcher in computer networking, will present an overview of the evolution of Internet architecture and discuss challenges and approaches for the next transformation of the Internet.
