Computation Offloading and Task Scheduling at Network Edge
Thursday, March 3, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
In the 5G era, wireless networks are anticipated to provide connectivity for massive mobile devices and to enable a variety of innovative applications, which generate enormous computing service demands with diverse and stringent Quality of Service requirements. To support the emerging computing service demands, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), as a cutting-edge technology in 5G, utilizes computing resources on the network edge to provide computing services for mobile devices within a radio access network. In this talk, we will investigate computing resource management for MEC to satisfy diverse computing requirements in wireless networks. We will introduce three computation offloading and task scheduling schemes tailored for supporting representative use cases and network scenarios in 5G, including autonomous driving, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) assisted networks, and highly dense vehicular networks. Machine learning algorithms are applied to facilitate low-latency and reliable computing services in complex and dynamic network environments.
