TECoSA Edge Computing Summit

June 17, 09:0015:00

All are welcome to join us for this TECoSA Edge Computing Summit, addressing key trends, use-cases and challenges in edge computing. The event is a collaboration between the KTH research centres TECoSA and Digital Futures and the university cooperation initiative Nordforsk NUEI. Join physically at KTH or online.

The TECoSA Edge Computing summit will address the academic and industrial status quo of edge computing, and in particular focus on the next ten years: Where will edge computing, networked infrastructures and applications go from here? What will 6G mean for edge computing? What will be the relevance of AI and in particular foundation models for edge computing? And how can we ensure trustworthy infrastructures in the future?

The event features keynotes by Professors Mahadev Satyanarayanam (CMU), Klara Nahrstedt (University of Urbana-Champaign) and Sasu Tarkoma (University of Helsinki) plus industrial perspectives and panel debates. Click here if you want to know more about the keynote speakers and panel moderators!
