Atum

Rachid Guerraoui, Anne-Marie Kermarrec, Matej Pavlovic, Dragos-Adrian Seredinschi
2016 Proceedings of the 17th International Middleware Conference on - Middleware '16  
At the heart of Atum lies the novel concept of volatile groups: small, dynamic groups of nodes, each executing a state machine replication protocol, organized in a flexible overlay.  ...  We report on our synchronous and asynchronous (eventually synchronous) implementations of Atum, as well as on three representative applications that we build on top of it: A publish/subscribe platform,  ...  Using these applications, we verified experimentally the properties of our system: Our findings indicate that Atum tolerates arbitrary faults even in a large-scale, high-churn network.  ...

2017
This study undertakes a comprehensive examination of neurofiction – a genre of literary fiction which has emerged in response to what scholars have termed neuroculture.  ...  neuro-introspection refers to the the capacity for individual minds/brains to perceive and observe themselves; and neuro-intersubjectivity refers to the capacity for individual minds/brains to engage in  ...  The slow, Nietzschean death of God which inspired such existential enquiries in the thinkers surveyed by Julian Young inspires similar effects in the work of the authors surveyed here.  ...
