In this paper, the authors investigate the problem of uploading user-generated content files (e.g., video captured on mobile devices) to a media cloud via a cooperative wireless network. The multi-path uploading capability of the cooperative network provides new opportunities by optimally allocating the packets into multiple paths to reduce end-to-end file uploading delay, thus improve the end user experience. In this paper, they formulate the delay minimization problem as an optimization task which is then studied using Evolutionary Algorithm (EA).
