TECoSA Seminar – A Secure and Reusable Artificial Intelligence Platform for Edge Computing
November 2, 15:00 – 16:00
We aim to bring you a TECoSA Seminar on the first Thursday of each month during term-time. All are welcome to attend and we look forward to some lively discussions. Members can accept the Outlook invitations, non-members can email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Our November seminar is with Dr Fehmi Ben Abdesslem, Senior Research Scientist at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. The session is co-hosted with Digital Futures, and will be given live on KTH Campus (Digital Futures Cafeteria, Osquars backe 5) and also via Zoom (https://kth-se.zoom.us/j/66857695267).
ABSTRACT: This seminar will introduce the EU-funded international project AI@EDGE, presenting its architecture and main results. AI@EDGE aims at developing a connect-compute fabric – specifically leveraging the server-less paradigm – for creating and managing resilient, elastic, and secure end-to-end slices in edge networks. Such slices will be capable of supporting a diverse range of AI-enabled applications. Privacy-preserving machine learning and trusted networking techniques will be used to ensure each stakeholder can use the platform without disclosing sensitive information. AI@EDGE targets significant breakthrough: (i) general-purpose frameworks for closed-loop network automation capable of supporting flexible and programmable pipelines for the creation, utilisation, and adaptation of AI/ML models; and (ii) converged connect-compute platform for creating and managing resilient, elastic, and secure end-to-end slices capable of supporting a diverse range of AI-enabled network applications.
BIO: Fehmi Ben Abdesslem is a senior research scientist at the Computer Science department of RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden), in the Connected Intelligence unit. He is also an affiliated researcher at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and a Honorary Senior Research Fellow at UCL (University College London). In 2008, he received a Ph.D. from Sorbonne University in Paris, France, before working as a research fellow at the University of St Andrews and the University of Cambridge from 2009 to 2012. His area of expertise includes designing and prototyping protocols and algorithms for wireless communications, and applying AI for computer networks.
