DECENTER will design and develop a robust and secure Fog Computing Platform, based on existing Open Source frameworks that provides application-aware orchestration of resources and zero-touch provisioning of Microservices for Artificial Intelligence applications based on their specific requirements and described by means of Quality of Service models.
DECENTER relies on a framework that catalyses offer and demand for Edge resources. The innovative solution is based on Blockchain to draft and seal Smart Contracts, monitor their fulfillment and grant rewards.
DECENTER enriches Internet of Things platforms with more intelligent features able to cope with the data deluge coming from multiple data sources including audio and video capable devices with built-in Artificial Intelligence algorithms for feature extraction, application-aware data filtering reducing impact on the use of the network.
DECENTER evolves decentralised Artificial Intelligence models that become possible with a more reactive and flexible resources infrastructure, unlocking a huge potential for innovative applications. Among others, this innovation will address the needs for data locality and time-critical aspects of the Big Data problem.
