AI-SPRINT at the IEEE EDGE 2021 conference


The IEEE EDGE 2021 is an international conference for academia and industry focused on:

  • exchanging the latest fundamental advances in the state-of-the-art and practice of edge computing,
  • identifying emerging research topics, and
  • defining the future of edge computing.

The conference has been organised on a yearly basis since 2017. This year the IEEE EDGE 2021 takes places from 18 to 20 December 2021 in a hybrid form (in Guangzhou, China, on the first day and online in the remaining two days).


AI-SPRINT at the IEEE EDGE 2021 conference

Hamta Sedghani, Researcher at Politecnico di Milano and member of the AI-SPRINT project team, is going to present the paper "A Random Greedy based Design Time Tool for AI Applications Component Placement and Resource Selection in Computing Continua", written in collaboration with Federica Filippini, Researcher at Politecnico di Milano, and Danilo Ardagna, Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano and Scientific Coordinator of AI-SPRINT.

Her presentation shows how the Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning are, nowadays, very pervasive areas, as they can be applied in several sectors, spanning from personal assistants to healthcare. Moreover, the accelerated migration towards mobile computing and Internet of Things is determining the rise of the edge computing paradigm, where computing resources are distributed among devices with highly heterogeneous capacities. In this fragmented scenario, efficient component placement and resource allocation algorithms are crucial to orchestrate at best, the computing continuum resources. The AI-SPRINT project aims to overcome these issues with the development of a new tool that addresses the component placement problem for AI applications at design time.
