Title: System and Incentive Design in Socio-technical Networks [
Link] [Slides]

Abstract:
Socio-technical networks (e.g. social networking services, peer-to-peer systems, etc.) provide a popular, cost-effective and scalable framework for sharing user-generated resources or services. Achieving resource sharing efficiency in socio-technical networks is a challenging problem, because the information available about the various resources is decentralized and it is changing dynamically; the agents may be heterogeneous and have different learning abilities; the agents may make proactive decisions on link formation; and most importantly, the agents may be self-interested, i.e. they take actions which maximize their individual utilities rather than the collective social welfare and thus choose to free-ride rather than share their resources..

The overarching goal of my dissertation is to develop a rigorous and unified paradigm for the joint design of efficient incentive mechanisms and resource management schemes in socio-technical networks. It can be generally divided into two parts.

The first part focuses on the efficient resource sharing in socio-technical networks. Existing distributed network optimization techniques that enable efficient resource allocation when agents are obedient or cooperative are no longer suitable in socio-technical networks which are formed by self-interested agents. The strategic interactions of such self-interested agents lead in numerous socio-technical networks to (Nash) equilibria that are highly inefficient from a social perspective. To achieve social efficiency, incentives need to be provided to agents such that they find in their own self-interest to cooperate and thus act in a socially-optimal way. I propose a general methodology for the design and analysis of rating protocols and associated multi-agent learning algorithms to sustain cooperation in socio-technical networks. Under a rating protocol, an agent is rated based on its behavior. The rating affects the agent's rewards received in the network, which are typically determined according to a differential resource management scheme: compliant agents receive higher ratings and are rewarded by gaining more access to resources compared to non-compliant agents. This preferential treatment thus provides an incentive for agents to cooperate. I rigorously formalize and study the design of rating protocols to optimize the social resource sharing efficiency while encompassing various unique features of socio-technical networks, including the anonymity of agents, asymmetry of interests between different parties in the network, imperfect monitoring, dynamics in the agent population, and white-washing effects (i.e., an individual agent creating multiple identities in the network).

Different from the first part where the underlying network topology is exogenously determined, the second part of my dissertation augments the proposed rating protocols by investigating the endogenous formation of network topologies by the strategic, self-interested agents who produce, disseminate or collect resources. I propose a novel game-theoretic framework to model and analyze the trade-offs (of each individual agent) between the costs and benefits of producing resources personally and forming links to acquire and disseminate resources. A central point of my analysis, which departs from the existing literature on social network formation, is the assumption that the strategic agents are heterogeneous and that agents value this heterogeneity. The heterogeneity of agents and the ability of agents to strategically produce, disseminate or collect resources have striking consequences on the endogenously emerging topology, which provide important guidelines for the design of effective incentive mechanisms and resource management schemes in endogenous socio-technical networks. I first show that the network topology that emerges (at equilibrium) necessarily displays a core-periphery type: hub agents (at the core of the network) produce most of the resources and also create and maintain links to the agents at the periphery, while spoke agents (at the periphery of the network) derive most of their resources from hub agents, producing little of it themselves. As the population becomes larger, the number of hub agents and the total amount of resources produced grow in proportion to the total population. I then show that the networks that emerge at equilibrium are frequently minimally connected and have short network diameters. These ``scale-free'' conclusions had been conjectured for many networks, such as the ``small-world'' phenomenon in the World-Wide-Web, but not derived in any formal framework, and are in stark contradiction to the ``law of the few'' that had been established in previous work, under the assumption that agents solely benefit by forming links for resource acquisition, while resources are homogeneous and part of the endowment of agents, rather than heterogeneous and produced.

Title: Towards a Systematic Approach for Modeling and Optimizing Distributed and Dynamic Multimedia Systems [
Link] [Slides]

Abstract:
Recent advances in low-power, multi-core and distributed computing technologies have opened up exciting research opportunities, as well as unique challenges, for modeling, designing, and optimizing multimedia systems and applications. First, multimedia applications are highly dynamic, with source characteristics and workloads that can change significantly within milliseconds. Hence, systems need to be able to optimally adapt their scheduling, resource allocation, and resource adaptation strategies on-the-fly to meet the multimedia applications' time-varying resource demands within the delay constraints specified by each application. Second, systems often need to support multiple concurrent multimedia applications and thus, (Pareto) efficient and fair resource management solutions for dividing processing resources among the competing applications need to be designed. Finally, some applications require distributed computing resources or processing elements, which are located across different autonomous sites. These different sites can collaborate in order to jointly process the multimedia data by exchanging information about their specific system implementations, algorithms and processing capabilities. However, exchanging this information among these autonomous entities may result in unacceptable delays or transmission overheads. Moreover, they may even refuse to share this information due to proprietary or legal restrictions. Thus, information-decentralization can present a major obstacle for optimizing the performance of delay-sensitive multimedia applications that require coordination and cooperation between distributed, autonomous sites.

This dissertation addresses the above challenges by providing a systematic framework for modeling and optimizing multimedia systems in dynamic, resource-constrained, and informationally-distributed environments. In particular, we propose a stochastic modeling approach to capture the dynamically changing utilities and workload variations inherent in multimedia applications. This approach enables us to determine analytical solutions for optimizing the performance of applications on resource-constrained systems. Furthermore, the problem of information-decentralization can be addressed in our framework by systematically decomposing the joint multi-applications and multi-site optimization problems, and designing corresponding mechanisms for exchanging model parameters, which characterize the utilities, constraints and features of the autonomous entities. This systematic decomposition enables entities to autonomously coordinate and collaborate under informational and delay constraints. Finally, to optimize the performance of the multimedia applications or systems in these distributed environments, we deploy multi-agent learning strategies, which enable individual sites or applications to model the behaviors of its competitors or peers and, based on this, select their optimal parameters, configurations, and algorithms in an autonomous manner. Summarizing, our framework proposes a unified approach combining stochastic modeling, systematic information exchange mechanisms, and interactive learning solutions for optimizing the performance of a wide range of multimedia systems.

A unique and distinguishing feature of our approach is the extent of multimedia algorithms and systems domain specific knowledge used in developing the proposed framework for modeling, and optimizing the interacting system components and applications. This is in contrast to existing distributed optimization or game theoretic approaches, which use simplistic utility - resource functions, and often ignore the dynamics and constraints experienced in actual multimedia systems. Instead, our developed modeling and optimization framework is directly shaped by the specific characteristics, constraints and requirements of multimedia systems. Specifically, the proposed framework provides pragmatic implementation solutions for (i) the optimization of dynamic voltage scaling algorithms for multimedia applications, (ii) energy-aware resource management for multiple multimedia tasks, and (iii) resource-constrained adaptation for cascaded classifier topologies in distributed stream mining systems.

Title: Distributed and Dynamic Resource Management Strategies for Multimedia Networks using Cooperative Game Theoretic Approaches [
Link] [Slides]

Abstract:
This thesis proposes a distributed and dynamic multi-user resource management framework, which enables heterogeneous multimedia users that repeatedly interact in a dynamically varying network environment to strategically maximize their own utilities, given their private information. For this, we rely on cooperative game-theoretic concepts. For instance, we model the bilateral interactions among users as resource reciprocation games. Using our formulation, the resource reciprocation among the various peers in a peer-to-peer network is modeled as a stochastic game. Within this game, the peers can autonomously determine their optimal strategies for resource reciprocation using a Markov Decision Process (MDP) formulation. Unlike existing myopic solutions for resource reciprocation such as Tit-For-Tat, the optimal strategies determined based on MDP enable the peers to make foresighted decisions about resource reciprocation, such that they can explicitly consider both their immediate and future expected utilities. In the resource reciprocation games, the participating users need to mutually agree on a particular resource division. For this, we propose a methodology for designing utility-aware resource division solutions which are able to fulfill desired fairness axioms in terms of multimedia performance. We also show how the proposed resource management framework can also be successfully deployed in cognitive radio networks, wireless multimedia broadcasting, distributed stream mining systems, etc.

Title: Designing Autonomic Wireless Multi-Hop Networks for Delay-Sensitive Applications [
Link] [Slides]

Abstract:
Emerging multi-hop wireless networks provide a low-cost and flexible infrastructure that can be simultaneously utilized by multiple users for a variety of applications, including delay-sensitive applications, such as multimedia streaming, mission-critical applications, etc. However, this wireless infrastructure is often unreliable and provides dynamically varying resources with only limited QoS support. To improve the performance of the delay-sensitive applications and to support timely reaction to the network dynamics, the multi-hop network needs to be composed of autonomic nodes (agents), which can adapt, make their own transmission decisions and negotiate their wireless resources based on their available local information. Current wireless networking research has focused on coping with the environment disturbances, such as variations (uncertainties) of the wireless channel (e.g. fading) or source (e.g. multimedia traffic) characteristics, while neglecting the coupling dynamics among nodes, due to the shared nature of the wireless spectrum. However, characterizing and learning the neighboring nodes' actions and the evolution of these actions over time is vital in order to construct an efficient and robust solution for delay-sensitive applications.

Hence, we propose and analyze various interactive learning schemes for these agents to learn the network dynamics and, based on this knowledge, foresightedly adapt their cross-layer transmission decisions such that they can efficiently utilize the shared, time-varying network resources. We show that the foresighted decision making significantly improves the agents' utilities under a variety of dynamic network scenarios (e.g. multimedia streaming over WLAN, energy-efficient transmission in mobile ad hoc networks, joint route/channel selection in multi-hop cognitive radio networks) and various network topologies as compared to existing state-of-the-art solutions. In conclusion, our research adds a new, "cognitive", dimension to existing multi-hop wireless networks that enables the autonomic nodes to dynamically forecast the expected response to network dynamics of neighboring nodes and evaluate how specific forms of explicit and implicit signaling impact the performance of delay-sensitive applications.

Title: Informationally Efficient Multi-User Communication [
Link] [Slides]

Abstract:
The rapid increase in the demand for data rate over wired and wireless communication networks has led to a rethinking of the traditional network architecture and design principles. In fact, communication systems are inherently informationally decentralized competitive environments, where multiple devices executing a variety of applications and services need to locally adapt their transmission strategies based on their available information and compete for scarce networking resources. The concepts and techniques that have dominated multi-user communication research in recent years are not well suited for these informationally decentralized environments. Specifically, most existing research has focused on two extreme multi-user interaction scenarios, the complete information scenario with a common system-wide objective (e.g. Pareto optimality) and the private information scenario with conflicting objectives (e.g. Nash equilibrium (NE)).

The objective of this dissertation is to characterize users' optimal strategies to improve their performance subject to varying degrees of informational constraints. We mainly focus on fully distributed solutions without any real-time information exchange between different users. In particular, we investigate three key problems in information-constrained multi-user communication systems. First, when will a distributed algorithm (e.g. best response dynamics) converge to a NE? And how fast? Second, if information is constrained and no real-time information exchange between users is allowed, how to improve an inefficient NE without message passing? Last, assuming no real-time information exchange between users, can we still achieve Pareto optimality? We propose and analyze two new classes of games named additively coupled sum constrained games and linearly coupled games, in which we individually address these three questions. In particular, we provide sufficient conditions under which a unique NE exists and best response dynamics linearly converges to the NE. We also provide conjectural equilibrium based solutions that can substantially improve the performance of inefficient NE and fully recover Pareto optimality without any real-time information exchange between users. The proposed game models apply to a variety of realistic applications in multi-user communication systems, including multi-channel power control, flow control, and wireless random access.

Title: A Unified Framework for Delay-Sensitive Communications [
Link] [Slides]

Abstract:
Delay-sensitive communications (e.g. multimedia transmission) are booming over a variety of wireless networks. Current solutions often lead to an unsatisfactory experience for delay-sensitive applications since they ignore the stringent delay requirements and the heterogeneous features (e.g. importance, delay deadlines and dependencies) of the delaysensitive data. This problem is becoming increasingly more serious when multiple delaysensitive applications coexist in wireless networks and share the scarce network resources. In this dissertation, we develop a unified foresighted optimization framework which explicitly considers both the heterogeneity of the delay-sensitive data and the dynamics of the wireless networks in order to optimize the long-term utilities of the delay-sensitive applications.

In the proposed unified framework, we establish three separation principles which are theoretically important for designing delay-sensitive communication systems. First, by introducing the post-decision states, we separate the foresighted decisions from the underlying network dynamics, which enables us to explore the structures of the optimal solutions and design low-complexity algorithms. Second, in order to explicitly consider the heterogeneity of the multimedia traffic, we prioritize the delay-sensitive data (expressed as direct acyclic graphs) and separate the multi-data unit foresighted decision into multiple single-data unit foresighted decisions, which can subsequently be performed from the high priority to the low priority. Third, when multiple delay-sensitive applications coexist in the wireless network, by introducing a resource price and relaxing the network resource constraints imposed in the future transmission, we separate the multi-user foresighted decision into multiple single-user foresighted decision, thereby significantly reducing the computation and communication complexity. Implementing the above framework in practice requires statistical knowledge of the network dynamics, which is often unavailable before transmission time. To overcome this obstacle, we propose novel structure-aware online learning algorithms derived from the above three separation principles. The proposed online learning algorithms have low complexity and fast convergence, and achieve ?-optimal solutions, which can significantly improve the delay-sensitive communication performance in the unknown environments.

Title: Online Learning for Energy-Efficient Multimedia Systems [
Link][Slides]

Abstract:
Designing energy-efficient resource management strategies for multimedia applications is a challenging problem because of their stringent delay constraints, mixed priorities, intense resource requirements, and sophisticated source coding dependency structures. In my dissertation research, I aim to develop a rigorous, formal, and unified modeling framework for supporting such applications in a large class of resource management scenarios including energy-efficient point-to-point wireless communication, cooperative multi-user wireless video transmission, and energy-efficient cross-layer system optimization.

The foundation of my approach is modeling multimedia systems as stochastic and dynamic systems. Unlike traditional resource management solutions, in which the goal is to optimize the immediate utility (i.e. myopic optimization), the goal in the proposed framework is to optimize the trajectory of the system's underlying stochastic process by accounting for how decisions at the current time impact the future utility (i.e. dynamic optimization). To achieve this, I model system and network resource management problems as Markov decision processes (MDPs). Then, to address the fact that the statistics of the system's underlying stochastic process are typically unknown a priori, I adopt and often extend reinforcement learning techniques from artificial intelligence to enable devices to learn their experienced dynamics online, at run-time, in order to optimize their long-term performance.

Title: Strategic Pricing and Resource Allocation: Framework and Applications [
Link][Slides]

Abstract:
Enabled by ubiquitous broadband connectivity and seamless wireless connections, we have witnessed in the past few years the emergence of a plethora of wireless applications, ranging from data communications and social networking to the more recently wireless cloud computing. The growing tension between the exploding demand for such wireless applications and the increasingly scarce network resources (e.g., spectrum, power) has urged a rethinking of the service providers' pricing strategies and network resource management techniques to cope with potential threats of quality-of-service degradation and revenue decreases. Specifically, it has become of paramount importance for service providers to strategically redesign their pricing policies and to understand how various pricing policies will affect the service demand, competition in the market, as well as the network resource management.

In this dissertation, I propose a novel framework to optimize a service provider's pricing policy as well as its network resource allocation decision for profit maximization, in the presence of self-interested participating users that strategically respond to the charged price to maximize their own benefits. Applicable to both static and stochastic environments, the proposed framework explicitly takes into account user heterogeneity, which is observed in a wide range of applications. Based on the framework, I investigate the problem of optimizing pricing and resource allocation for the service provider's profit maximization in various contexts, including cooperative relay networks, communications markets, online user-generated content platforms, and mobile cloud computing systems.
