Reinventing the Internet by Creating Platforms for Innovations

Guru Parulkar
Stanford University

Internet has been wildly successful and has emerged to be a critical global computing and communication infrastructure for the society. However, there is increasing recognition that it cannot serve needs of the society for the future due to its fundamental architectural limitations and emerging trends in technology and services. Stanford's Clean Slate Internet Design Program is aimed at answering the questions: if we were doing the Internet today with what we know and what is on the horizon, how we would do it; and what type of Internet we want for the society in 15 years and how we can get there. In this talk, I will outline our proposed approaches involving creation of key platforms for innovations and allowing ourselves and others to build on them to shape the future global computing and communication infrastructure.
