A Support Infrastructure for Machine Learning at the Edge in Smart City Surveillance

By Domenico Scotece Marianna Paradisioti Luca Foschini Periklis Chatzimisios Paolo Bellavista


Nowadays, the massive usage of mobile and IoT applications generate large amounts of data. Due to several reasons, including latency and bandwidth, it is not practical to send all generated data to the cloud. Recent standardization efforts, namely, Fog computing and the Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), provide an extension of Cloud computing storage and network resources placed in a geographically distributed manner at the edge of the network closer to mobiles and IoT devices. These paradigms allow low latency, high bandwidth, and location-based awareness. In this paper, we present an infrastructure to support distributed Machine Learning (ML) by enabling edge devices to collaboratively learn a shared model while keeping local knowledge stored at the edge of the network. In addition, we claim the possibility of improving the model through the cloud that acts as a supervisor of the system that contains the global knowledge of the entire system through the integration of local edge models. We describe our architectural proposal and analyze a case study, namely video streaming processing for face recognition, deployed in a collaborative edge network. Finally, we report experimental results that show the potential advantages of using our approach instead of ML algorithms completely expected at the cloud infrastructure
