Mobile Cloud and Crowd Computing, Communications and Sensing

Dept. of Computer Science (October 17, 2013)

SEMINAR SERIES : Distinguished Lecture

MAJOR SPEAKER : Stojmenovic, Ivan
LENGTH : 78 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : Mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops, embedded boards, robots) can serve as terminals for cloud computing services over intelligent network. Mobile cloud has emerged as a new cloud computing platform that 'puts cloud into a pocket'. Important issues include optimizing the scheduling and transport schemes, access management, and application optimization, for mobile devices to achieve energy saving. This talk will first introduce the development of mobile cloud computing and describe some applications involving multimedia, vision/recognition, graphics, gaming, text processing. It will present the transmission, computation (e.g. task outsourcing), and sensing (e.g. location based services) challenges and solution approaches of green computing in mobile cloud. 'Crowd computing' combines mobile devices and social interactions to achieve large-scale distributed computation. Examples include task farming and social network creation and cooperation. Mobile devices are being equipped with various sensors to provide input for participatory and opportunistic crowd-sourced sensing. Particular emerging concepts are 'vehicular cloud' and 'vehicular crowd', with applications such as cloud server, vehicular data center, and congestion mitigation.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
