  • Abstract: As part of the Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) initiative, the ECODE FP7 project designs and experiments machine learning-based control functionality. For this purpose, the project designs, develops, and experiments a distributed machine learning component that augments the capability and functionality of the routing and the forwarding engine of current routers. To evaluate the executability and the performance of the developed machine learning based control functionality, several experiments are conducted at the iLab.t experimental facility, located at IBBT in Ghent, Belgium.

Maestro 's task is to design and evaluate flow management schemes that can deal with potentially sampled traffic information. K. Avrachenkov is the coordinator for Maestro .
