Real-Time Decentralized knowledge Transfer at the Edge [article]

Orpaz Goldstein, Mohammad Kachuee, Derek Shiell, Majid Sarrafzadeh
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The proliferation of edge networks creates islands of learning agents working on local streams of data.  ...  This approach suits the decentralized architecture of edge networks, as a local edge node will serve a community of learning agents that will likely encounter similar data.  ...  Peer-to-Peer (P2P) agent communication over a defined network structure is described by Gossip Algorithms Shah (2009); Boyd et al. (2006) .  ...

The Double-Edged Sword: Paternalism as a Policy in the Problems of Aging

Thomas Halper
1980 The Milbank Memorial Fund Quarterly Health and Society  
with peers he might never have chosen, his individuality is sacrificed to bureaucratic convenience and necessity, he no longer selects even the food he eats or the clothes he wears.  ...  The paternalistic approach to the problems of the aged, therefore, emerges as a weapon not wholly of good or evil, but rather like a double-edged sword that can damage either side with a chilling impartiality  ...

A Taxonomy of Rational Attacks [chapter]

Seth James Nielson, Scott A. Crosby, Dan S. Wallach
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For peer-to-peer services to be effective, participating nodes must cooperate, but in most scenarios a node represents a self-interested party and cooperation can neither be expected nor enforced.  ...  The most effective solutions directly incentivize cooperative behavior, but when this is not feasible the common alternative is to incentivize evidence of cooperation instead. • Altruistic or obedient  ...  INTRODUCTION A significant challenge in peer-to-peer (p2p) computing is the problem of cooperation.  ...

Science's Big Problem, Reincarnation's Big Potential, and Buddhists' Profound Embarrassment

Ted Christopher
2017 Religions  
The larger test for science's paradigm, though, as well as for any potential general import from reincarnation -is the DNA (or genetics)-based model of heredity.  ...  Yet it is easy to find behavioral phenomena from the accepted literature that seriously challenge materialism. A number of these phenomena are very suggestive of reincarnation.  ...  The author also gratefully acknowledges the editing work of Cindi Rittenhouse. Beyond this the efforts and funding came solely from the author.  ...

Proactive Forensics in IoT: Privacy-Aware Log-Preservation Architecture in Fog-Enabled-Cloud Using Holochain and Containerization Technologies

Kanwal Janjua, Munam Ali Shah, Ahmad Almogren, Hasan Ali Khattak, Carsten Maple, Ikram Ud Din
2020 Electronics  
Collecting and preserving the smart environment logs connected to cloud storage is challenging due to the black-box nature and the multi-tenant cloud models which can pervade log secrecy and privacy.  ...  The existing work for log secrecy and confidentiality depends on cloud-assisted models, but these models are prone to multi-stakeholder collusion problems.  ...  Moreover, Holochain is not dependent on the references to the proof-of-work, the proof-of-stake, or leading selection algorithms to ensure the data integrity for peer-to-peer applications.  ...

Adaptive Distributed b-Matching in Overlays with Preferences [chapter]

Giorgos Georgiadis, Marina Papatriantafilou
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Recent research proposed that this problem can be modeled and studied analytically as a many-to-many matching problem with preferences.  ...  The peers may maintain some private notion of how a "desirable" peer should look like and they share their bounded resources with peers that they prefer better than others.  ...  Unstructured overlays in particular aim at connecting peers with minimal assumptions on the protocols to be used, while addressing universal challenges: peers are willing to share both concrete resources  ...

The Convergence-Guaranteed Random Walk and Its Applications in Peer-to-Peer Networks

Ming Zhong, Kai Shen, Joel Seiferas
2008 IEEE transactions on computers  
Network structure construction and global state maintenance are expensive in large-scale, dynamic peer-to-peer (p2p) networks.  ...  In this paper, we investigate an approach for random walks to converge to application-desired node visitation probability distributions while only requiring information about direct neighbors of each peer  ...  The problem may become more severe when these edges happen to be bottlenecks for random walk movements as revealed by edge congestion.  ...
