Throughput optimal routing algorithms, first purposed by Tassiulas and Ephremides in 1992, rely in solving a maximization problem that, in general and depending on the particular interference model and degrees of freedom, is in NP-complete.

Two non-optimal scheduling algorithms with provable performance bounds will be explored and a simple randomization technique is introduced such that the average performance of both techniques is improved. More Information..

2. Development Culture (Videogame) - Ricard (45m)

Creating a unified mindset of personal and professional development creates favorable conditions for successful game development. A culture of learning goes beyond budgets and development plans to a shared mindset in the leadership. Valuing and respecting achievements of staff through measures like 80/20 rule and collaborative Team Development Plans ultimately expresses commitment of the organization to their talent. The perception that your potential could not be maximized better at any other employer is the best measure to retain great talent in times when innovation and ability to deliver are the primary differentiators in the market

Ricard's Short Bio:
