Research Seminar – Lee Christie – Distributed Noncooperative Combinatorial Optimisation using Smart Contracts

March 13 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 pm
N336, Sir Ian Wood Building

Combinatorial optimisation is a widely-studied class of computational tasks with many theoretical and real-world applications. Such computation is typically tackled using hardware and software controlled or rented by the user, although it may be distributed between trusted entities. Blockchain technology enables the use of decentralized applications (ĐApps) to incentivise participation in the system by rewarding participants with cryptocurrency native tokens (such as Bitcoin or Ether) or other tokenized assets. Using smart contracts on the EVM platform, this project aims to build a second-layer…
