2nd Workshop on Converge of Edge Intelligence in IoT (EdgeAI-IoT 2023)

2nd Workshop on Converge of Edge Intelligence in IoT  (EdgeAI-IoT 2023)

Track ID: Work-02



Edge Intelligence is a synergy that seems to be imperative to conclude the convergence of Edge Computing and the Internet of Things to support intelligent applications very close to end users. IoT has pervaded our daily life by making things interconnected through the Internet, smarter, distributed and more autonomous. The emerging development of intelligent applications in IoT has now started to gain significant attention. Cloud provides many benefits to IoT devices, including high-performance computing, a storage infrastructure, processing, and analysis of large-scale data giving IoT the opportunity to be robust, intelligent, and self-configuring. The forthcoming emergence of Edge AI will extend the capabilities of the ‘legacy’ IoT, its potential, the number of devices and the volumes of data. However, Cloud technologies face some accessibility challenges when providing services to end users. For instance, mobile clients can move among different places yet require Cloud services with minimum cost and short response time. The unstable connection between Cloud and mobile devices is expected to prevent providers from achieving optimal performance. To cope with these limitations, we aspire that Edge AI converged with IoT environments materializes the desired AI-led distributed and ubiquitous intelligence in natural computing systems. We then need additional effort to establish and deliver the convergence of Edge AI and IoT in formatting the future Intelligent IoT. The Intelligent IoT is envisioned to involve numerous autonomous & distributed computing and AI-driven entities capable of understanding their internal status (context), and the status of their environment and peers (collaborative context) and take timely optimized actions to efficiently serve modern applications, like tactile internet and augmented AI-led gaming.


Motivation and Excellence

The overarching aim of the EdgeAI-IoT Workshop is hosting novel solutions towards the convergence of Edge Computing paradigm, AI and IoT materializing the future Intelligent IoT bringing together scientists & scholars to discuss the future research directions in the domain, propose theoretical/practical models/techniques of this convergence, and present current potential solutions. The EdgeAI-IoT Workshop aims at detecting the key research questions related to the intelligent management of an ecosystem of ML/AI-led edge nodes capable of autonomously interacting with IoT computing environments. A critical issue is the synergies among collaborating edge nodes and IoT devices in a collective intelligence manner that should face all the modelling, heterogeneity, network, and decision-making challenges. This year we give much emphasis to online learning in IoT. The topics of the EdgeAI-IoT Workshop are concentrated on (but not limited to) the following themes:

  • Theoretical Models for Edge AI and Intelligent IoT
  • Edge AI Infrastructure Modelling & Applications
  • Distributed AI at the Intelligent Edge
  • Reinforcement Learning at the Edge
  • Multi-Armed Bandits (MAB) for Edge AI
  • Contextual MAB for the Edge AI
  • MAB algorithms with switching costs
  • Autonomous Systems for Edge AI and IoT
