Innovating on the Edge

Ketan on computer

Edge computing is one of the fastest-growing fields in computing research, and the College of Computing's School of Computer Science (SCS) is at the forefront.

As the cloud enables more complex applications everywhere, some of the most vital computing now occurs at the edge of the network, from video processing to image recognition. Yet with these innovations come challenges, including latency, cost, and security. This is where SCS steps up.

Across the school, networking and systems researchers are tackling how best to take advantage of the edge’s many benefits, while making sure it is secure and practical to use. Together, they are shaping the future of the field.
