    The topic of network neutrality has occupied engineers, economists, and telecommunication lawyers since at least 2003. Network engineers often largely perceive this as yet another debate about quality-of-service, but this constitutes probably the least interesting part of the problem and has served more often to distract from other, more important, issues. Almost all network neutrality problems ar... View full abstract»

    Caching allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to reduce network traffic and Content Providers (CPs) to increase the offered QoS. However, when contents are encrypted, effective caching is possible only if ISPs and CPs cooperate. We suggest possible forms of non-discriminatory cooperation that make caching compliant with the principles of Net-Neutrality (NN). View full abstract»

  • Considering Jurisdiction When Assessing End-to-End Network Neutrality

    Network neutrality (NN) is an Internet principle that needs to be enforced by normative, which is valid just within a jurisdiction that is usually limited by the borders of a country or region. However, existing solutions designed to assess end-to-end neutrality violations do not consider the normative jurisdictions. We argue that jurisdiction-aware violation detection can be achieved through furt... View full abstract»

    A chatbot is an example of a text-based conversational agent. While natural language understanding and machine learning techniques have advanced rapidly, current fully automated chatbots still struggle to serve their users well. Human intelligence, brought by crowd workers, freelancers, or even full-time employees can be embodied in the chatbot logic to fill the gaps caused by limitations of fully... View full abstract»

    Crowdsourcing is the process of accomplishing a task by using a typically open call to invite members of the public (the “crowd”) to work on one's task. The authors describe a project assignment in which students received the opportunity of practicing crowdsourcing to accomplish a hummed song recognition task, yielding improved comprehension of the concept and high student satisfaction.

    The increasing popularity of chatbots as virtual assistants has lead to many organizations releasing If-This-Then-That frameworks to engineer such chatbots. However, these frameworks often result in inflexible and difficult-to-maintain chatbots. This paper outlines a high-level conceptual framework for realizing flexible chatbots founded upon agent-oriented abstractions: goals, pl... View full abstract»
