Edge computing and AI

Edge computing is envisioned as a key enabler for flexible and smart 6G networks. Together with advanced AI/ML algorithms, edge computing can pave the way towards an intelligently connected infrastructure that provides optimal decisions in the network for a zero-touch approach. New 6G services will be increasingly demanding in terms of connectivity, latency, reliability and availability of real-time data, but also on security and privacy of users and data. In order to meet these strict requirements, the development of edge computing is essential in reducing the distance between the origin of the data and the processing resources since such distributed computing framework aims to bring the computing, storage and network resources closer to the end users.
