What’s new: EGG is a new toolkit that allows researchers and developers to quickly create game simulations in which two neural network agents devise their own discrete communication system in order to solve a task together. For example, in one of the implemented games, one agent sees a handwritten digit and has to invent a [...]

For years, developers have open()ed a file, write()n to it, then read() from it on a local filesystem. In distributed systems, however, these actions involve multiple processes across different hosts at different places in the network. Each of these hosts — or the network itself — could fail independently and unexpectedly. How should a storage [...]
