If you have a question about this talk, please contact Gemma Gordon.

Consistency conditions for distributed systems (such as eventual consistency) are often formalised by specifying happens-before relationships between read-and write events that must be preserved by the system.

In this talk, I will argue that a natural way to reason about these conditions arises from thinking about what individual nodes know about a given computation.

For this purpose, I will present how eventual consistency can be formalised in term of knowledge.
