Using Prefetching Algorithms to Seamlessly Download Data

Mentor: Robert LiKamWa
FURI: Spring 2018

The objective is to create a data distribution system that uses location data from the user’s mobile device to anticipate what information their device will need in the immediate future. The local app will then download the information so that the user can enjoy a seamless entertainment experience. In the golden age of user experience, consumers need an algorithm that can anticipate what media they may want to experience in the future so that they can enjoy it without a long loading time. Currently, this research is being used to further an augmented reality museum curation project.
