Abstract: Fog and Edge Computing are two models that reached maturity in the last decade, and they can now be considered de facto standards for deploying low and ultra-low latency applications, privacy-oriented solutions, industry 4.0, and smart city infrastructures. The common trait of Fog and Edge computing environments regards their inherent distributed and heterogeneous nature where the multiple (Fog or Edge) nodes are able to interact with each other with the purpose of pre-processing data gathered by the uncountable number of sensors to which they are connected to, even by running significant ML models and relying upon specific processors (TPU). In general, these nodes are often placed in a geographic domain, like a smart city, and the dynamic of the traffic during the day may cause some nodes to be overwhelmed by requests while others instead may become completely idle. To achieve the optimal usage of the system and also to guarantee the best possible QoS across all the users connected to the Fog or Edge nodes, the need to design load balancing and scheduling algorithms arises. The talk will illustrate cooperation-based solutions by showing the pros, the cons, and the results obtained by using randomized approaches, model-based ones, and solutions based on online reinforcement learning algorithms.
Short Bio: Gabriele Proietti Mattia is currently a Postdoc at Sapienza University of Rome, hosted by prof. Roberto Beraldi. Previously he completed his PhD in Engineering in Computer Science at the same University, then a Master's Degree and a Bachelor's Degree in the same field, respectively, in 2017 and 2019. He has published several papers at leading conferences in the area of Cloud, Fog, and Edge Computing (PerCom, ICCCN, MSWiM) and in Journals (IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, Computer Networks, Pervasive and Mobile Computing).
