1 Socially-Aware Distributed Systems or Why this Class Collaboration? Anda Iamnitchi

2 Distributed Systems Collections of stand-alone communicating devices that have a common task or objective Internet-connected computers Mobile devices (cell phones, PDAs) Common tasks: Communicate/share data (the Web, BitTorrent) Compute something together (SETI@home)... Collectively provide a service 2

3 A Distributed System 3

4 Or a Distributed System 4

5 5 Thesis The wealth of social information exposed from multiple sources can be mined in the design of distributed computing infrastructures: to facilitate improved performance for traditional applications and services; to enable novel applications. Funded by NSF CAREER Award

6 6 Social Information Connects people through relationships Object centric: use of same objects Person centric: declared relationships or co- participation in events, groups, etc. Social relationships can be translated into: Trust Incentives for resource sharing Shared interest in content …

15 15 Main Research Questions What social information is relevant to distributed systems design? How to protect private information? How to use social information? What applications and services can benefit from social information?

16 Relevance to this Collaborative Class? Experience with interdisciplinary work Communication ( e.g., geodesic vs. shortest path) Field-specific problem-solving approach High potential for more interesting research By formulating more interesting questions By access to richer computational tools and expertise Better learning (bigger project, real problems) Team work: can be highly productive – outcome bigger than the sum of the parts. 16
