Andoni Amurrio Gonzalez from IKERLAN presented at the BDVA DataWeek 2023 in Luleå, Sweden on 14 June 2023 as part of the session on ‘Building a Cognitive Cloud-Edge Continuum for Next-Generation Data Processing Applications’.
His presentation introduced the goals and vision of the EXTRACT project and explained IKERLAN´s activities related to connected devices to analytics in the cloud.
The session brought together speakers from projects of the Cloud-Edge-IoT community who provided an overview of their Cognitive Computing solutions, including next-generation meta-operating systems for the smart Internet of Things as well as AI-enabled computing continuum cloud-edge platforms.
The solutions presented seek to address next-generation data processing applications that require new AI-enabled cloud-edge platforms that will automatically adapt to the growing complexity and data deluge by integrating seamlessly and securely diverse computing and data environments, spanning from HPC to cloud to edge to IoT.
These solutions are expected to respond and adapt intelligently to changes in application behavior and data variability offering automatic deployment, mobility, and secure adaptability of services across the continuum to diverse users and contexts. Data management should take into account the openness and trustworthiness of the underlying resource management layers. The innovative application of AI-techniques is expected to allow dynamic load balancing and to optimise energy efficiency, while maintaining balanced data traffic and high, distributed, reliable throughput from cloud to edge according to the application and user needs and the underlying infrastructures.
