Researchers to Improve Efficiency, Reliability of Networked Systems

03/20/2012 - 7:38am   Networked systems often are not as efficient or reliable as they could be, largely because they are informationally decentralized, comprise many nodes carrying disparate information, and are subject to constraints on energy, data storage and computational capabilities. ITI researchers and their collaborators aim to address the problem by developing a general theoretic framework and tools to help optimize these sensing systems.
