Dine & Development: Two Presentations on Distributed Ledger Technologies
ROME, NY — The Griffiss Institute and the Cyber Research Institute, together, present a Dine & Development Training Series Workshop: Two Presentations on Distributed Ledger Technologies, on Thursday, January 31, 2019, 3:45 – 5:00 pm, at Griffiss Institute, 725 Daedalian Drive, Rome, NY.
This presentation is free to attend, and coffee and light refreshments will be served. Interested parties are asked to register by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, January 30, at www.griffissinstitute.org/dineanddevelopment.
The Dine & Development Training Series is a collaborative effort, bringing together local businesses, Air Force Research Laboratory researchers, and academia to expose and inform the Central NY business and research community on technology-driven topics of common interest, and to also promote business development by providing networking opportunities among researchers and attendees.
Tango: The Beginning - A Semi-Synchronous Iota-Tangle Type Distributed Ledger with Periodic Pulsed Entries
A central challenge with distributed ledger technologies involves the latency incurred in processing and verifying transactions. To reduce latency, we offer a distributed ledger architecture, Tango, that mimics the Iota-tangle design as articulated by Popov in his seminal paper. A main idea is the introduction of a semi-synchronous transaction entry protocol layer. We model periodic pulsed injections into the evaluation layer from the entry layer.

During 2018 Dr. Tekeoglu co-chaired two conference workshops: Privacy and Security Challenges on Big Data Workshop, and Blockchain Track for the 13th International Conference on P2P, Parallel, Grid, Cloud and Internet Computing; and was a visiting researcher at the University of Victoria, B.C. Canada. He is a member of the IEEE and has served on the technical program committee for numerous conferences.
Parameterized Pulsed Transaction Injection Computation Model and Performance Optimizer For IOTA-Tango
To address performance issues in cryptocurrency systems, we designed a pulsed transaction injection parameterization (PTIP) protocol, to minimize latency and optimize resource utilization. To further achieve network subgoals - based on various house policies such as maximizing revenue or throughput, we turn the house policy-based optimization into a 0/1 knapsack problem. To efficiently solve these NP-hard problems, we adapt and improve a fully polynomial time approximation scheme (FPTAS) and dynamic programming as components in our approximate optimization algorithm.
