Information Networking Architecture for Knowledge Management

Organizers: Masashi Sugano (Osaka Prefecture University, Japan)


Nowadays, IoT and M2M are becoming realistic and ubiquitization of the source of the information used as the base of knowledge is in progress. Many users come to access a network with high-performance mobile terminals, such as smart phone or tablet, and the requirement to transmission of large-volume multimedia information, including high-quality video etc., is growing. Information network is an important infrastructure supporting knowledge management system, however, it is considered by the network architecture developed for the conventional Internet that these various change cannot be coped with. Moreover, the scalability for corresponding to the rapid increase in the number of nodes and the robustness for bearing various failures are also becoming important.

In order to cope with these problems, development of new network architecture with high flexibility and scalability is desired. As the one flow, what is called contents centric networking (CCN) or information centric networking (ICN) has been studied in several years. These are considered that it can contribute to realization of more flexible knowledge management system by realizing not the communication based on the conventional address but communication which made the contents (or information) themselves the identifier. Furthermore, its attention is paid to this session at the topic about mobile/ubiquitous environment, network architecture suitable for IoT or M2M, scalability, and robustness as new network architecture for supporting knowledge management systems.
