Congratulations to Dr. George Saad who just defended his dissertation (with distinction) yesterday on “Selfishness and Malice in Distributed Systems”. George’s dissertation focused on designing 1) algorithms for self-healing in networks with Byzantine nodes and 2) designing mediators to improve social welfare in a type of El-Farol game with both positive and negative networks effects. Here are slides from his excellent talk.
