Impact of Delayed Response on Wearable Cognitive Assistance

Wearable cognitive assistants (WCA) are anticipated to become a widely-used application class, in conjunction with emerging network infrastructures like 5G that incorporate edge computing capabilities. While prototypical studies of such applications exist today, the relationship between infrastructure service provisioning and its implication for WCA usability is largely unexplored despite the

Connecting the Dots at the Edges

Within the switching engineering division, we thought of the network as a complex collection of switching, transmission and operation systems interconnected by a web of copper

Carnegie Mellon Built a Plug-and-Play Private LTE Network

When Mahadev Satyanarayanan, group professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University and an expert in edge computing, needed a network to test his edge computing applications, he knew he wanted something that was low in latency, reliable and not susceptible to any performance degradation. Satyanarayanan turned to Amazon Web

Three Decades Of Vision For Edge

In this interview, Satya shares how he started thinking about distributed computing infrastructure for mobile devices back in 1993, how much of his vision has come true in the decades since, and his views on the future of cloud, edge, iot, and much more.
