the following talk by ANRP 2013 prize winner Te-Yuan Huang is probably of interest to some RAI and TSV folks. The talk will start at approx. 9:15AM on Tuesday:

>    *** TE-YUAN HUANG *** for insights into the difficulties of rate
>    adaptation for streaming video:
>        Te-Yuan Huang, Nikhil Handigol, Brandon Heller, Nick McKeown
>        and Ramesh Johari. Confused, Timid, and Unstable: Picking a
>        Video Streaming Rate is Hard. Proc. ACM Internet Measurement
>        Conference (IMC),November 2012, Boston, MA, USA.
>        Today’s commercial video streaming services use dynamic rate
>        selection to provide a high-quality user experience. We
>        measure three popular video streaming services and find that
>        accurate client-side bandwidth estimation above the HTTP
>        layer is hard. As a result, rate selection based on
>        inaccurate estimates can trigger a feedback loop, leading to
>        undesirably variable and low-quality video. In this talk, we
>        will present insights into its root causes and validate
>        initial solutions to prevent it.
