 Edge Intelligence and Its Application in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

 Weisong Shi

Professor of Computer Science
Associate Dean of College of Engineering
Wayne State University


Abstract: The proliferation of Internet of Things and the success of rich cloud services have pushed the horizon of a new computing paradigm, Edge Computing, which calls for processing the data at the edge of the network. Edge computing has the potential to address the concerns of response time requirement, battery life constraint, bandwidth cost saving, as well as data safety and privacy. In this talk, he will discuss the start-of-the-art of Edge Computing, followed by the emergence of edge intelligence (EI), and how EI applies to Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.
