Keynote title : Mobile Cloud, Crowd and Fog Computing, Communications and Sensing
Mobile devices can serve as terminals for cloud computing services over intelligent network. ‘Crowd computing’ combines mobile devices and social interactions to achieve large-scale distributed computation. ‘Fog computing’ is a highly virtualized platform that provides compute, storage and networking services between end devices and traditional cloud computing data centers. Mobile devices are being equipped with various sensors to provide input for participatory and opportunistic crowd-sourced sensing. This talk gives overview of applications and the transmission, computation (e.g. task outsourcing), and sensing (e.g. location based services) challenges and solution approaches of green computing in mobile cloud. Examples include task farming and social network creation and cooperation. Particular emerging concepts are ‘vehicular cloud/crowd’, with applications such as vehicular data center and congestion mitigation.
