Visiting Lecture on Information-theoretic Caching

Monday, January 25, 2016

Venue: TS127
Time: 10am-11am

Title: Information-theoretic Caching

Abstract: Caching is a promising technique for dealing with increasing demands on communication networks. In this talk, we present an information-theoretic perspective on (optimally coded) caching. We discuss the resulting architectural insights concerning optimal caching strategies, and outline several open problems.
