Geometric Atlas Towards Preventing Internet Collapse

in technology

Can a map would lead to a more robust Internet routing architecture because it simplifies path-finding throughout the network?

Making road map to find road blocks and direct rerouting might sound logical. This was the topic of a paper published recently in Nature Communications. The San Diego Supercomputer Center and Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) at the University of California, San Diego, in a collaboration with researchers from Universitat de Barcelona in Spain and the University of Cyprus, have created the first geometric "atlas" of the Internet as part of a project to prevent our most ubiquitous form of communication from collapsing within the next decade or so.
