Yaoqing Yang Carnegie Melllon University Title: "Compressive Computing" in Data Processing Abstract: When we process a big amount of data in a distributed network, we may consider using “compressive computing” to reduce the required innetwork communication. This idea is a natural generalization of Shannon's source compression theory to distributed computing. In particular, we consider the problem of linear function computation in a tree network. We examine two cases: data aggregation (only one sink node computes a function of distributed data) and consensus (all nodes compute the same function). In both cases, we provide upper and lower bounds on the overall communication cost, which meet with each other in the zero distortion limit.
