Artificial Intelligence in Cloud Computing and Internet-of-Things

  • Prof. Vincenzo Piuri  

Recent years have seen a growing interest among users in the migration of their applications to the Cloud computing and Internet-of-Things environments. However, due to high complexity, Cloud-based and Internet-of-Things infrastructures need advanced components for supporting applications and advanced management techniques for increasing the efficiency. Adaptivity and autonomous learning abilities become extremely useful to support configuration and dynamic adaptation of these infrastructures to the changing needs of the users as well as to create adaptable applications. This self-adaptation ability is increasingly essential especially for non expert managers as well as for application designers and developers with limited competences in tools for achieving this ability. Artificial intelligence is a set of techniques which greatly can improve both the creation of applications and the management of these infrastructures. This talk will discuss the use of artificial intelligence in supporting the creation of applications in cloud and IoT infrastructures as well as their use in the various aspects of infrastructure management.

Resource Allocation and Scheduling Real-Time Applications in Cloud and Fog Architecture: Trends and Challenges

  • Prof. Helen Karatza  

Cloud computing plays an ever-increasing role recently in various sectors including academia and business. It has been widely recognized that resource allocation and application scheduling are important aspects of cloud computing. Due to the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, fog computing has emerged as a computing paradigm used to solve constrains in cloud computing related to network congestion and transmission latency, thus providing additional functionality in IoT. Most of the IoT applications are time-sensitive, so the constraint of meeting deadlines is mandatory. On the other hand, the processing capacity of the fog resources is usually limited. Consequently, appropriate management of real-time applications is required for effective use of cloud and fog resources. In this keynote we will discuss novel techniques to address challenges in resource allocation and scheduling in cloud and fog computing infrastructures. Additionally, we will identify and provide future research directions in the cloud and fog computing research areas.
