       Recent technological trends such as Industry 4.0 introduced new challenges that push the limit of current computer and networking architectures. It demands the connection of thousands, if not millions, of sensors and mobile devices coupled with optimized operations to automate various operations inside factories. This led to the new era of Internet of Things (IoTs) where lightweight (possibly mobile) devices are envisaged to send vital information to cloud data centres (mobile and fixed infrastructure) for further processing and decision making.
       Current cloud computing systems, however, are not able to efficiently digest and process collected information from IoT devices with strict response requests for two main reasons: (1) the round trip delay between IoT devices to the processing engines of cloud could exceed an application’s threshold, and (2) network links to cloud resources could be clogged when IoT devices flush data in an uncoordinated fashion. Fog and Edge Computing are two solutions to address both of the previous problems. Though designed to alleviate the same problem, they have fundamental differences that make adopting one more applicable than the other.
       This talk will overview the practical concerns of today’s IoT implementations through tackling the most important obstacles that hinder their adoption. First, production of applicable network (fixed and mobile) latency models to capture all elements of IoT platforms. Second, building a holistic platform to orchestrate various inter-related layers of IoT platforms, including connectivity, big-data analytics, and workload optimization. Third, proposing viable solutions that can be actually implemented in IoT-based applications. More details will be provided about the above issues during the talk.

主题:Solar power prediction and use on edge computing devices

主讲内容:
       There is a growing trend for deploying Internet of Things devices in homes to improve the comfort of residents. However, the rapidly rising interest in such deployments does not normally integrate with energy management schemes for properly utilizing renewable energy, which is a central issue that smart homes have to face. In this talk, we introduce a new framework of an edge-based platform which provides service of energy management for powering smart appliances at home while meeting the needs of home energy management and smart home applications. This framework aims to enable the full use of renewable energy while reducing electricity bills for households. A prototype system was implemented using real smart appliances.
       In this talk, we also aim to introduce how we come up with the idea of this piece work, what research methods we used during our research in one-year time.
