Dr.-Ing. Kalman Graffi presents in this talk in Karlsruhe 2011 research results on both quality-controlled p2p systems and p2p-based online social networks. Monitoring the quality of service of peer-to-peer systems, helps commercial system providers and users to observe the behavior of the system. With an automated re-configuration approach misleading trends and quality issues can be tackled, resulting in a self-optimizing peer-to-peer network. However, new application areas need to be investigated for the p2p paradigm. Online social networks are very popular nowadays, using a p2p based approach could both benefit the system providers and users. With LifeSocial, an operational peer-to-peer-based prototype will be presented. The solution is reliable, monitored, secure and provides in addition to the typical functionalities of online social networks some collaborative elements. An overview and videos are given in www.lifesocial.org
Kalman Graffi graduated from the Technische Universität Darstadt with the degree Dr.-Ing. in electrical engineering, a diploma in computer science and a diploma in mathematics.
He is focusing on the monitoring and management of peer-to-peer systems as well as on peer-to-peer based online social networks.
