Hey Matt and Change folks,

If any of you go to this talk, could you share your notes with me?
Unfortunately, I am leaving for a bunch of conferences on the same day and
will miss it :(

Forwarded with permission. This looks like an interesting talk with a
member of Facebook's data science team looking at disaster mapping and
recovery, hosted by CSDE.

Zack Almquist is a Research Scientist in the Demography and Survey Sciences
group at Facebook. From 2013-2018 he was an Assistant Professor of
Sociology and Statistics at the University of Minnesota. In 2017-2018 he
was a Visiting Scholar at the Graduate School of Education at Stanford
University. Almquist’s research interests include social network analysis,
big data, computational social sciences, mathematical sociology, spatial
analysis, demography, sociology of education, environmental policy, public
health, and human judgment and decision-making. His main research focus is
on understanding, modeling, and predicting the effects that space
(geography) and time have on human interaction (e.g., communication,
friendship, mentorship, needle sharing, etc.) and social processes (e.g.,
information passing, knowledge acquisition, skill development, disease
transmission, etc.).

[change] Change Seminar Today 10/15: Kurtis Heimerl "CoLTE, a LTE-based community networks solution"

2019-10-15 Thread Sara Vannini
*Join us for Change Seminar next Today 10/15!*

*When*: today, 12pm-1pm
*Where*: CSE2-271
*Who*: Kurtis Heimerl
*Title: *CoLTE, a LTE-based community networks solution

*Talk Summary:*
In this talk I introduce CoLTE, a solution for LTE-based community
networks. CoLTE is a lightweight, Internet-only LTE core network (EPC)
designed to facilitate the deployment and operation of small-scale,
community owned and operated LTE networks in rural areas with limited and
unreliable backhaul. The key differentiator of CoLTE, when compared to
existing LTE solutions, is that in CoLTE the EPC is designed to be located
in the field and deployed alongside a
small number of cellular radios (eNodeBs), as opposed to the centralized
model seen in large-scale telecom networks. We also provide performance
results and lessons learned from a real-world CoLTE network deployed in
rural Indonesia. This network has been sustainably operating for over
six months,
currently serves over 40 active users, and provides measured backhaul
reductions of up to 45% when compared to cloud-core solutions.

*Speaker bio:*
Kurtis is Assistant Professor at the University of Washington School
of Computer
Science & Engineering, where he works with the Change and ICTD groups. His
research interests are in the space of technology for poverty alleviation,
specifically Internet Access. He was a recipient of the 2014 MIT “35 under
35” award, the 2018 UW early career Diamond Award, and won “Best Paper”
awards at both CHI and DySPAN. He publishes in top conferences such as
ICTD, CHI, and NSDI and occasionally on the UWCSE ICTD Blog.
