Self-Learning Networks

To adapt to varying conditions in the environment and application requirements, the EVA team investigate self-learning networks. Machine learning approaches, based on experts and forecasters, are investigated to predict the quality of the wireless links in a WSN. This allows the routing protocol to avoid using links exhibiting poor quality and to change the route before a link failure. Additional applications include where to place the aggregation function in data gathering. In a content delivery network (CDN), it is very useful to predict popularity, expressed by the number of requests per day, for a multimedia content. The most popular contents are cached near the end-users to maximize the hit ratio of end-users' requests. Thus the satisfaction degree of end-users is maximized and the network overhead is minimized.
