2nd webinar “Bringing the Intelligence to the Edge – AI@EDGE and DAIS Overall Architecture”

On the 29th of Novemeber 2023, AI@EDGE will hold an online webinar titled “Bringing the Intelligence to the Edge – AI@EDGE and DAIS Overall Architecture“.

In this webinar, AI@EDGE and DAIS projects will share their results on the overall architecture and main components needed to bring the intelligence to the edge in B5G/6G networks. 

The AI@EDGE project will present the developed Network and Service Automation Platform (NSAP) and Connect-Compute Platform (CCP) with new modules/functions/services and interfaces for AI based Orchestration of AI Function (AIF), with dynamic AIFs placement on decentralized and distributed CCP. The key components, Multi-Tier Orchestrator (MTO) & Intelligent Orchestrator Component (IOC) exploiting data and AI/ML pipeline, will be addressed together with further research area in this domain. 

The DAIS project will present the approach and design of the software architecture and the enabling software components for the DAIS software platform. This presentation comprises various challenges and design aspects related to enabling software components, coordination and orchestration of distributed AI components, ensuring security and in the software environment and realization of a robust, flexible, and secure digital communications infrastructure, which are the key aspects of the DAIS Software platform. 

In addition, lessons learned and challenges will be discussed during the panel just after presentations.
