Enabling Distributed Intelligence in Internet of Things
We propose a new computing paradigm, Edge Mesh, for Internet of Things which distributes decision-making tasks among edge devices instead of sending all the data to a centralized server. All the computation tasks and data are shared using a mesh network of edge devices and routers. One of the problems being studied in in this project is to develop a framework for allocating tasks among edge devices while considering placement of input data in Edge Mesh.
