The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at SRM University-AP is organising the first session of the Distinguished Lecture Series on the topic “Neoteric Frontiers in Cloud and Edge Computing” on July 21, 2021, Wednesday at 10.00 am. Prof Rajkumar Buyya, Director at Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS) Lab, University of Melbourne, Australia will be the keynote speaker of this session on emerging fields of Computer Science.
The keynote presentation will cover (a) 21st-century vision of computing and identifies various IT paradigms promising to deliver the vision of computing utilities; (b) innovative architecture for creating elastic Clouds integrating edge resources and managed Clouds, (c) Aneka 5G, a Cloud Application Platform, for rapid development of Cloud/Big Data applications and their deployment on private/public Clouds with resource provisioning driven by SLAs, (d) a novel FogBus software framework with Blockchain-based data-integrity management for facilitating end-to-end IoT-Fog/Edge-Cloud integration for execution of sensitive IoT applications, (e) experimental results on deploying Cloud and Big Data/IoT applications in engineering, and health care (e.g., COVID-19), deep learning/Artificial intelligence (AI), satellite image processing, natural language processing (mining COVID-19 research literature for new insights)and smart cities on elastic Clouds; and (f) directions for delivering our 21st-century vision along with pathways for future research in Cloud and Edge/Fog computing.
