Greenedge (EU project no. 953775) is an MSCA Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission under the H2020 research and innovation program.
In a nutshell, mobile communications have pervaded our everyday lives, deeply affecting the way in which we work, travel and spend our free time. That is, our connected society generates a vast amount of data, that has to be transmitted, processed and analysed, often in an online fashion. Such data surge demands a massive use of computing services based on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms. With the advent of 5G networks, these algorithms will be increasingly pushed towards the network edge and, at a global scale, they will have a large, unsustainable, carbon footprint.
The Greenedge project’s mission is to tame the growing carbon footprint of ML/AI based edge computing services by exploiting renewable energy resources and conceiving novel and green-by-design machine learning algorithms to be used within edge mobile networks.
15 PhD researchers will trained and supervised by leading experts to tackle this challenge.
