IoT Edge Computing at NEC Labs
The proliferation of tightly, machine learning coupled data producers and consumers at the endpoints of the Internet challenges traditional
cloud-centered data processing and service placement. The reasons are tight responsiveness requirements (e.g., for applications involving user
interaction like augmented reality (AR) or smart appliances), strict data privacy requirements (e.g., for camera surveillance or hospital data) and the
depletion of existing network uplink resources for such massive reverse data flow.
In this talk, I will give an overview over our research efforts at NEC Labs for business units and the BigDataStack EU project that address these challenges
with edge computing, dynamic procssing flows and the concept of elastic services.
Bio sketch. Jonathan Fürst is a visiting researcher at NEC Laboratories Europe and a postdoctoral researcher at the IT University of Copenhagen. He has been
working with software controllable micro grids, sensor networks, IoT systems and Building Management Systems (BMS) in non residential buildings. During
his PhD, he was a visiting researcher at UC Berkeley in the Software Defined Buildings (SDB) group. His current research at NEC Labs focuses on developing better abstractions to program and run IoT applications efficiently from edge to cloud.
