Albert Rafetseder participates in US research video
The Computing Community Consortium, an agency funded by the US National Science Foundation, currently runs a campaign asking researchers to produce short video clips about the work they do. These videos present how research projects work, and which problems they tackle. The target audience are highschool pupils and first-year undergraduate students all across the US.
Albert Rafetseder was invited by Justin Cappos (NYU Poly), the leader of the Seattle Internet testbed project, to participate in a video introducing Seattle. Seattle is an open-source, open participation experimental network that runs on donated resources on end user machines. At the Future Communication research group, Seattle was ported to the Android platform, enabling its spread to mobile Internet devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, and giving researchers an ever more realistic set of testbed nodes to experiment with.
The Future Communication research group uses Seattle both in teaching (e.g. in the courses on network technologies for multimedia applications and operating systems), and in research (cf. our latest publications on measuring the YouTube network). The video is available from YouTube. The CCC also has additional information on the project.
