Research Challenges in Edge Computing

  • Online

A discussion of some of the major challenges facing edge computing. Not exclusively, these major challenges range from the underlying infrastructure construction to the programming model design, from the resource discovery to application QoS demand and optimizations. Attention must also be given to the security and privacy at each layer of this new computing paradigm. 

What you will learn:

  • Explain the uniqueness of Edge Computing
  • Recite major research challenges that Edge Computing faces
  • Describe potential research directions
