Edge Computing and Edge Intelligence in the Internet of Things

The internet of things connects billions of mobile digital devices, manufacturing machines, industrial equipment, etc., and generates an unprecedented volume of data. This motivates the emergence of a new computing paradigm: edge computing. It has attracted attention from both academia and industry in recent years. In edge computing, computations are deployed mainly at the local network edge rather than at remote central computing infrastructures, thereby considerably reducing latency and possibly improving computation efficiency. It brings about a world where smart, connected embedded systems and products operate as part of larger systems. The edge computing model has been applied in many areas such as mobile access networks, Internet of Things (IoT), and microservices, enabling novel applications that drastically change our daily lives.

In light of the above observations, in this special issue, we look for original work on intelligent edge computing, addressing the particular challenges of this field, especially re-designing analytic architectures, distributed machine learning algorithms compatible to edge computing, and for building intelligent edge intelligence techniques, possibly revealing new, compelling use cases. This special issue is to present the advances and the latest intelligent technologies, implementations and applications in the field of edge computing systems, and moves the theoretical and practical frontiers forward for a deeper understanding from both academic and industrial viewpoints.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Analytics architectures, frameworks, and models for intelligent edge computing
• Theory, standards, protocols, and strategies for intelligent edge-based internet of things
• Intelligent communication technologies for mobile, wireless, wired edge-based systems
• Theory, standards, protocols, applications for edge-based Internet of Vehicular Networks
• New theories, applications for the edge-based intelligent transportation systems
• Security and privacy in edge intelligent systems
• Modeling, analysis and measurement of intelligent edge computing
• Machine learning algorithms and systems for edge computing
• Machine learning-assisted networking and communication protocols for or using edge computing
• Machine learning based optimization methods for edge intelligent computing
• Data mining and knowledge discovery based on big data analysis from the aspect of edge-based systems
• Intelligent decision-making systems for edge-based systems
• Human and machine intelligence fusion in the edge-based systems
