Future Internet

This activity explores highly innovative paradigms for the Future Internet. Specifically, the research focuses on highly scalable ubiquitous networks that are able to efficiently support large and diverse sets of devices, as well as to overcome the bandwidth capacity crunch due to the surge of mobile data traffic demand. We investigate self-organizing network architectures where nodes exhibit autonomous and collective behaviours to optimize resource utilization and, at the same time, provide the highest quality of experience for users. This research is highly interdisciplinary, by exploiting results coming from human social networking, physics of complex systems and cognitive psychology.
