Powerful smartphones, cars and robots can take over tasks from the cloud (edge computing), leading to faster decisions, lower energy consumption and better privacy protection. This opens new possibilities for AI applications based on intelligent systems and components with low power, often on batteries.
The research will lead to application-oriented cases far ahead of the state of the art for distributed and hierarchical AI systems, advanced signal processing, and learning algorithms for extracting actionable information from the edge.
