Title: “ A Vision towards Pervasive Edge Computing”

This talk presents an emerging pervasive edge computing paradigm where heterogeneous edge devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets, IoT and vehicles) can collaborate to sense, process data and create many novel applications at network edge. We propose a data centric design where data become self-sufficient entities that are stored, referenced independently from their producers. This enables us to design efficient and robust data discovery, retrieval and caching mechanisms. The future research agenda including scalable data discovery, cache management, autonomous processing, trust, security and privacy, incentives and semantic data naming) will be discussed.
