Séminar: Learning to Predict End-to-End Network Performance by Yongjun Liao

Room: IXXI

Abstract: We will present learning approaches to predicting end-to-end network performance such as round-trip time and available bandwidth. The key is to formulate the prediction problem as a problem of matrix completion. A novel concept is the rating of network paths, i.e. acquiring quantized measures of path properties, which is appealing in that ratings are not only informative but also cheap to obtain.
