From opportunistic networks to opportunistic computing

  title={From opportunistic networks to opportunistic computing},
  author={Marco Conti and Silvia Giordano and Martin May and Andrea Passarella},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
Personal computing devices, such as smart-phones and PDAs, are commonplace, bundle several wireless network interfaces, can support compute intensive tasks, and are equipped with powerful means to produce multimedia content. Thus, they provide the resources for what we envision as a human pervasive network: a network formed by user devices, suitable to convey to users rich multimedia content and services according to their interests and needs. Similar to opportunistic networks, where the… CONTINUE READING
