a typical ‘client-server’ system into a P2P
application. The idea is to share/split the visible
part of the game into cells and let users manage
object distribution. One of the difficulties is to
ensure continuity of the game experience by
making the decentralized management of the
images on the screen entirely transparent.
And I must say that our results have been quite
convincing this year”.
Fromusers’ standpoint,
networks seem increasingly
saturated. Are you trying
to improve this ?
E. B.:
“This is another area of my research.
Through the European project, Figaro, we’re
trying to understand the reasons for users’
loading problems. Internet service providers
dedicate a large part of their resources to
resolving technical client problems. And site
loading issues are many but not always due to
providers. They can come from your computer,
links between networks, the server fromwhich
you are downloading data or even the number
of Internet connections you have at home. The
challenge therefore lies in finding the source
of the problem to help users fix it themselves.
To do so, we are developing a box connected to
the Internet modem that measures data traffic”.
Howwill this application work?
E. B.:
“The goal is to supply users with an
IT tool capable of diagnosing the nature of the
problem with a simple click. We’re designing
an intelligent agent that will test the possible
causes, one after the other. But we must first
integrate data from neighboring boxes: latency,
loading time of each visited Web page, number
of data, loss rate, etc. Because of the vast quan-
tity of information available, the challenge is to
select themost relevant data to feed our software.
In 2011, we achieved an experimental tool which
has givenus a set of clues to explain these issues.
A prototype of the application with the box and
software is scheduled to come out in 2012 and a
complete demo for the following year”.
