Title: Quo Vadis, Edge Computing?
Speaker: Prof. Jussi Kangasharju (University of Helsinki, Finland)
Abstract: Edge computing is rising as the need for low-latency services and other applications such as Internet of Things and Augmented Reality are picking up speed. Edge computing extends existing cloud computing solutions by adding processing elements near the users, at the edge of the network. There are various proposals for edge computing architectures and solutions and so far there does not seem to be any clear consensus on what edge computing actually is. In this talk, we will take a look at how edge computing has come to be and what are the driving trends behind it. We discuss architectures and solutions for edge computing as well as some of its applications and the benefits that edge computing brings. The last part of the talk will focus on interesting research questions around edge computing and extrapolating towards the future of edge computing.
Bio: Jussi Kangasharju received his MSc from Helsinki University of Technology in 1998. He received his Diplome d’Etudes Approfondies (DEA) from the Ecole Superieure des Sciences Informatiques (ESSI) in Sophia Antipolis in 1998. In 2002 he received his PhD from University of Nice Sophia Antipolis/Institut Eurecom. In 2002 he joined Darmstadt University of Technology (TUD), first as post-doctoral researcher, and from 2004 onwards as assistant professor. Since June 2007 Jussi is a professor at the department of computer science at University of Helsinki. Between 2009 and 2012 he was the director of the Future Internet research program at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT). Jussi’s research interests are information-centric networks, edge and cloud computing, content distribution, opportunistic networks, and green ICT. He is a member of IEEE and ACM.
