Hybrid Event: Zoom
Abstract: The advancement of the human species relies on its ability to communicate complex information and ideas with each other. In the modern era, such exchange of information has been expedited using digital mediums, with the world wide web (WWW) being one of the most used platforms. Despite its ubiquitous use, the web today suffers from two main problems: 1) Poor performance, in terms of page load latency perceived by users and the rate at which pages can be crawled at scale. 2) High ephemerality resulting in link rot and necessitating massive web archiving initiatives.
