Topic : Modeling and optimization of Edge infrastructures and their electrical systems

Summary : connected objects are gradually influencing our lifestyle, with an ever-growing range of applications such as health equipment, smart buildings, smart networks, connected vehicles, smart cities, etc. They interact with high performance infrastructures such as the Cloud to store information, share data or perform computation. Consequently, the Cloud infrastructures are in rapid grow to meet the objects demand, raising some electrical and environmental challenges. Today, for latency constraints, Cloud resources are pushed to the edge of the communication networks, bringing the service close to the users, hence the concept of Edge Computing. The aim of this amazing research journey is to model the Edge Computing infrastructures, their interaction with the end users and the quality of service they deliver. Along with the infrastructure design, we explore algorithms to optimize its operation. Moreover, an important facet of our research concerns investigating and optimizing electrical designs to power these infrastructures based on renewable energy.
