DREAM

  This project seeks to provide the technology and software infrastructure necessary to support the next generation of evolving infohabitants in a way that makes that infrastructure universal, open and scalable. The Distributed Resource Evolutionary Algorithm Machine (DREAM) will use existing hardware infrastructure in a much more efficient manner, by utilising otherwise unused CPU time. It will allow infohabitants to co-operate, communicate, negotiate and trade; and emergent behaviour is expected to result. It is expected that there will be an emergent economy that results from the provision and use of CPU cycles by infohabitants and their owners. The DREAM infrastructure will be evaluated with new work on distributed data mining, distributed scheduling and the modelling of economic and social behaviour.
