Title: The Role of Fog Computing in IoT
Presenter: Dr. Rajkumar Buyya
Description: In the next two decades, Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm will play an important role in transforming the industry, environment, and society. The requirement of supporting both latency sensitive and computing intensive Internet of Things (IoT) applications is consistently boosting the necessity for integrating Edge, Fog and Cloud infrastructure. Fog computing environments harness the edge network resources to support applications and deliver services for making decisions in real-time. These intelligent IoT applications are estimated to have an economic impact of $11 trillion per year by 2025 (equivalent of 11% of the world economy).
This keynote talk presents: (a) architectural principles for Fog computing to harness edge resources, (b) algorithms for QoS-based provisioning of resources and scheduling of applications along with techniques for management of failures, and (c) a novel FogBus software framework with Blockchain-based data-integrity management for facilitating end-to-end IoT-Fog(Edge)-Cloud integration for execution of sensitive IoT applications, (d) a health-care application casestudy integrating finger pulse oximeter as IoT devices with Smartphone-based gateway and Raspberry Pi-based Fog nodes for Sleep Apnea analysis, and (e) future directions in Fog and Edge computing.
