Rodrigo N. Calheiros. Fog and Edge Computing: Challenges and Emerging Trends (Invited Talk). In 2nd Workshop on Fog Computing and the IoT (Fog-IoT 2020). Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 80, p. 1:1, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2020)


Just as the trend of data and computing consolidation via cloud computing starts to fade out, new paradigms that can better handle the unique demand of Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data emerged in the form of edge and fog computing. Although the literature provides different accounts for the differences between these emerging paradigms, they both rely on computing and storage devices that are closer to IoT devices and users than regular cloud data centers. With the advantage of smaller latencies, they introduce issues such as higher complexity for application development and deployment. In this talk, I will present the context in which these paradigms developed, challenges inhibiting their adoption, and emerging approaches to address some of these issues.
