Supreme Court Rules Against P2P Companies!

Slyck News - Supreme Court Rules Against P2P Companies!: "The United States Supreme Court, in a unanimous ruling, disagreed with two lower court rulings. Today’s opinion agrees with the MPAA and RIAA contention that P2P developers are responsible for the infringing activities of its users. The decision is a serious setback for commercial file-sharing companies, who were hoping a favorable Supreme Court decision would give the necessary leverage to negotiate a distribution agreement with the RIAA and MPAA."

BitTorrent web-service launches

BitTorrent web-service launches - "Prodigem is a content hosting service. It uses Bit Torrent peer to peer (p2p) filesharing to enable you to distribute extraordinarily large media files at an extraordinarily low cost. You can check out all of the original content being hosted at Prodigem from the Download Content page, and if you have content that you'd like to distribute or sell, you can easily create your own Prodigem account.

What is revolutionary here is that Prodigem completely automates the entire process of setting up bit torrent sessions for the distribution of your content. You simply upload your content via the web and with the click of a few buttons, the Prodigem servers are hosting and seeding your torrent for your content. This is push-button torrent hosting. Given recent claims that bit torrent makes up over 1/3rd of global internet traffic and given that downloading content via bit torrent is as simple as clicking on a .torrent link on any webpage, using Prodigem to distribute your large content files to your audience of the global internet is a no-brainer.

Prodigem can only be used for the distribution of legally licensed material cleared for distribution via p2p filesharing. So, if you are an artist, creator, author, blogger, podcaster, amateur mogul, lead guitarist, independent movie director or person, and you have material which has been licensed openly, such as with a Creative Commons license, the sky is now the limit."

DMX - Distributed Multihead X Project

DMX Homepage: "Typical X servers provide multi-head support for multiple displays attached to the same machine. When Xinerama is in use, these multiple displays are presented to the user as a single unified screen.

Xdmx is proxy X server that provides multi-head support for multiple displays attached to different machines (each of which is running a typical X server). When Xinerama is used with Xdmx, the multiple displays on multiple machines are presented to the user as a single unified screen.

A simple application for Xdmx would be to provide multi-head support using two desktop machines, each of which has a single display device attached to it.

A complex application for Xdmx would be to unify a 4 by 4 grid of 1280x1024 displays (each attached to one of 16 computers) into a unified 5120x4096 display."

Swarming Technology

Onion Networks: Swarming Technology: "A swarming download begins just like a normal client/server download where the first client connects directly to the server and starts receiving data. The similarities end here. Rather than sending out the entire file in a single response, the server breaks the file up into small pieces and begins sending some of those pieces to the first client. Meanwhile, a second client may begin its download process by also contacting the server. The server will also send the second client pieces of the file, but these pieces will be different than the ones being sent to the first client.

Simultaneously, the first client will begin sending some of its file pieces to the second client and likewise the second client will send some of its file pieces to the first client. As the network grows, the distinction between client and server blurs, with the network simply evolving into a grid of file transfer nodes all working together to accelerate the file transfer process.

This approach provides dramatic performance improvements and is highly reliable due to the massive redundancy of file sources in the network. At the same time, more of the bandwidth burden of the system is offloaded from the single server onto the rest of the network, allowing delivery of huge files to large audiences without a large amount of bandwidth at the origin server.

For a visual of the process, check out the the Swarming Simulation."

Improving scalability of submission node in Condor by using BitTorrent peer-to-peer downloading protocol

DSL Projects 2005 by Mark Silberstein: "Improving scalability of submission node in Condor by using BitTorrent peer-to-peer downloading protocol.

Condor is a high-throughput computing system, which allows running distributed applications on thousands of computers, harvesting their idle cycles (see for more details).

Jobs are submitted for execution by Condor via submission nodes, called schedds. It is a common case that multiple jobs are invoked with the same (sometimes very large) input files and the same executables, but different input parameters. The input files should be transferred to the remote computer for remote execution to succeed. This transfer can impose a significant load on the schedd, making it a bottleneck for a file transfer.

BitTorrent ( ) is a protocol which allows to drastically reduce the load on an HTTP server when downloading large files from it. It achieves that by utilizing the fact that multiple simultaneous downloaders can collaborate by exchanging the parts that they have and reduce their bandwidth to the server.

This project will attempt to apply the protocol and its existing implementation to the schedd.

The evaluation will be performed on the Condor pool in the Technion (100 computers) and in the University of Wisconsin, Madison ( containing thousands of computers )

Requirements: CDP, Introduction to Networks, Distributed Systems

Bill Gates' very own BitTorrent - the original daily p2p and digital media news site: "We propose a new content distribution system that uses network coding. Unlike other systems based on network coding, our approach targets the distribution of large files in a dynamic environment where nodes cooperate. Our system does not require any centralized knowledge of the network topology and nodes make decisions of how to propagate blocks of information based only on local information."

Microsoft readies BitTorrent alternative - Microsoft readies BitTorrent alternative: "Code-named Avalanche, the technology is similar to existing peer-to-peer (P-to-P) file swapping systems such as BitTorrent, in the sense that large files can be divided into many smaller pieces to ease their distribution. End users request the file parts from other users' hard drives and reassemble them to create the original file."

DHT, BitTorrent and Private Tracker

DHT is becoming more popular rapidly and is available in many clients, e.g., BitComet, Azureus, and Original BitTorrent. Tracker is not so important like before; however, private group of people don't like this feature.

Fortunately, developers allow trackers and users to specify a flag to disable DHT. There are 2 parts needed to modified: Metadata and Tracker. Usually, metadata is uploaded to tracker to be available for other leechers so tracker is possible to modify the metadata.

The key flag for BitComet is "private". This flag is an integer value which must be set inside "info" key in metadata. For Azureus, key "azureus_properties" in top level metadata must be removed to disable DHT.

Enter Avalanche: P2P filesharing from Microsoft

Enter Avalanche: P2P filesharing from Microsoft | The Register: "Researchers at Microsoft's computer science lab in Cambridge have developed a peer-to-peer filesharing system that they say overcomes the scheduling problems associated with existing distribution protocols such as Bit Torrent.

The researchers claim download times are between 20-30 per cent faster, using their network coding approach, than on systems that only code at the server, and between 200 and 300 per cent faster than distributing un-encoded information.

Naturally, Microsoft is very keen to stress that this technology should be used for distributing legitimate content. It even put that in italics in the press material.

The basic principle of the system, dubbed Avalanche, is pretty much the same as BitTorrent. Certainly the problem it solves is: a large file needs to be distributed to many people. One server does not have the bandwidth to deal with all that traffic, so you need to find another way of getting the file to everyone who needs it.

If the file is broken up into smaller pieces, these can be distributed among a smaller number of people, who can then share the pieces to make sure they all eventually have the complete file.

The problem with this approach, as anyone who has ever tried to download content on the system - legitimate or otherwise - knows, is that towards the end of a download, any one downloader could have a while to wait for the particular pieces he needs. As the number of receivers increases, scheduling traffic also becomes more complex, and the whole process slows down.

Microsoft Research's approach gets around this by re-encoding all the pieces, so that each one that is shared is actually a linear combination of all the pieces, fed into a particular function. The blocks are then distributed with a tag that describes the parameters it contains.

Once you have downloaded a few of these, you can generate new combinations from the ones you have, and send those out to your peers. Collect enough of these pieces, and you will have enough information to reconstruct the whole file. Even if you don't have all the original pieces distributed by the person who held the original version of the file.

Peers can make use of any new piece, instead of having to wait for specific chunks that are missing. This means no one peer can become a bottle neck, since no piece is more important than any other. It also means overall network traffic is lower, since the same information doesn't have to travel back and forth multiple times.

Nifty, no?

Have a read of the research paper here (pdf), if this is your kind of thing."

IBM Unveils World's Largest Privately Owned Supercomputer to Tackle Wide Array of Challenging Science, Business Problems

PRESS RELEASE IBM Unveils World's Largest Privately Owned Supercomputer to Tackle Wide Array of Challenging Science, Business Problems: "IBM announced today the launch of the world's most powerful privately owned supercomputer, the Watson Blue Gene system, nicknamed BGW, installed at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y.

With a processing speed of 91.29 teraflops, the system is expected to join its sister machine -- the Blue Gene/L supercomputer installed at Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL) and currently the world's fastest -- as one of the top three supercomputers in the world. BGW is comprised of 20 refrigerator-sized racks, less than 1/2 the size of conventional systems of comparable power and has 3 times the performance.

IBM plans to use the system to explore how BGW's unprecedented power might enable an extraordinary period of progress in a range of fields, from technical -- including life sciences, hydrodynamics, materials sciences, quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics and fluid dynamics -- to business applications.

'IBM researchers will use BGW to accelerate discovery in a variety of disciplines,' said Tilak Agerwala, vice president, Systems, IBM Research. 'Researchers, scientists, engineers and inventors can now ask more questions, test more theories, try more designs, and simulate more conditions than has been possible before.'

One of the first applications to be deployed on BGW will be Blue Matter, the software framework developed as part of the science effort within the Blue Gene project at IBM Research. Initial results on Blue Matter, which is used to run protein dynamics simulations important to drug development, were published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society in April 2005.

IBM also intends to provide access to BGW computing resources to academic and industrial researchers as part of the Department of Energy's Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program. The DOE recently expanded the INCITE program to offer selected outside parties access to the Blue Gene system at Argonne National Laboratories, and IBM will supplement access to that system with up to 5% of the cycles available on BGW. The program seeks computationally intensive, large-scale research projects and encourages proposals from universities, other research institutions and industry.

The Department of Energy's/National Nuclear Security Administration entered into a partnership with IBM in funding research and development of Blue Gene/L in 2000 in order to explore designs for highly cost-effective computers for science and mission. Since then, researchers from LLNL and its sister laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, have collaborated closely with IBM both in the early stages of system design, and later through providing challenging workloads and technical insights, including performance analysis. BlueGene/L is poised to achieve an astonishing 360 peak Teraflops when a 64 rack system with over 130,000 IBM PowerPC� processors is completely installed in 2005 at the DOE's/NNSA's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).

BGW will also be used by IBM's Center for Business Optimization (CBO) -- a new consulting and software unit which taps IBM's math scientists, industry and deep computing expertise to tackle clients' previously unsolvable problems. The CBO plans to use BGW to develop and run advanced mathematical algorithms for a variety of client problems. For example, high-precision weather forecasting software will feed predictive models for such diverse applications as disaster response, utility supply/demand forecasting, agricultural maintenance scheduling and transportation planning. In addition, BGW provides the power to track and analyze world financial markets in support of global risk measurement and management.

Blue Gene's combination of high performance with smaller size, cost and power consumption has brought supercomputing technology to the point where it can now be made more widely available and applied to a broader set of applications whereas the speed and performance of yesterday's supercomputers had limited value and accessibility due to their high cost and large size limiting their use to only a select few at national labs."

It is aimed at developers and users who want to develop and improve operating systems. The OpenSolaris technology represents cutting edge operating system design, but the innovation is just getting started!"

Japan unveils "robot suit" that enhances human power

Japan unveils "robot suit" that enhances human power - Yahoo! News: "Japan has taken a step into the science-fiction world with the release of a 'robot suit' that can help workers lift heavy loads or assist people with disabilities climb stairs.

'Humans may be able to mutate into supermen in the near future,' said Yoshiyuki Sankai, professor and engineer at Tsukuba University who led the project.

The 15-kilogram (33-pound) battery-powered suit, code-named HAL-5, detects muscle movements through electrical-signal flows on the skin surface and then amplifies them.

It can also move on its own accord, enabling it to help elderly or handicapped people walk, developers said.

The prototype suit will be displayed at the World Exposition that is currently taking place in Aichi prefecture, central Japan.

Japan has seen a growing market for technology geared toward the elderly, who are making up an increasing chunk of the population as fewer younger Japanese choose to start families.

A government report last week showed that pensioners made up a record 19.5 percent of the country's population in 2004 and that the ratio will grow rapidly, surpassing 35 percent in 2050."
