KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
Computing at the edge of wireless networks is emerging as a key technology for future networked services and applications, in the areas of digitization of industry, smart transportation and healthcare or infrastructure management. Many of the services edge computing needs to support are data driven and involve distributed learning and inference.
The objective of this project is to develop mathematical modelling and optimization techniques that are suitable to characterize the performance and to assist the resource management of these wireless edge computing systems. Special focus will be on large-scale networked systems for distributed learning.
The successful applicant will join the recently started Digital Futures project on Decision-making in Critical Societal Infrastructures, led by Prof. Viktoria Fodor.
