Decentralization in computing has gained notice in recent years with the rise in interest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies. However, the benefits of decentralization go beyond those more well-known solutions. Decentralization is a paradigm shift towards the dispersing of data, functions and control away from a central location or authority. Applied in new and innovative ways, decentralization can provide revolutionary software and systems solutions.
The Decentralized Science Lab (dSL) at Kennesaw State University is a research group performing cutting-edge research into decentralized computing concepts and their enabling technologies to provide R&D solutions in multidisciplinary domains including AI, Federated Machine Learning, FinTech, Security, and more. The team is headed by Dr. Reza M. Parizi in the College of Computing and Software Engineering.
