A distributed resource evolutionary algorithm machine.

  This paper describes a project funded by the
European Commission’ which 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 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
