MIT Algorithm Tackles Network Data Congestion
Posted on Written by
A research project at MIT has developed an algorithm in which a constantly updating network — of sensors, drones or data-sharing vehicles — minimizes how much new information is received at any moment to avoid data congestion, while still keeping the most important data "as fresh as possible." Right now, the approach works for "simple" networks; but eventually, the team expects to tackle complex ones as well.
