Nature-Inspired Adaptivity in Communication and Learning
Adaptive Communication Schemes
Paradigms like delay-tolerant networks or opportunistic networking appeared as networked environments called for new approaches in communication. Due to the often decentralized and self-organized character of these systems, the amount of explicit control in these systems must be reduced radically.
Our vision moves one step further, towards a system where the communication scheme itself also emerges from the actual conditions. When each element of the network uses a simple mechanism to fine-tune the amount and way of communication to match its local needs and resources, we can easily end up in an emergent system where the communication (amount and content) is globally adaptive, ’by itself’.
