This article discusses a fun puzzle that illustrates a beautiful open problem in this area: queueing theorists are trying to figure out how the structure of a network impacts its ability to distribute work among the nodes.
Applications of machine learning models are everywhere, with many online platforms and major science fields using tools relying on machine learning.
