Call for Papers: IEEE TSC Special Issue on Edge AI-as-a-Service

It is essential to deliver learning-based artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities through API service endpoints at the edge under the as-a-service model to meet the growing demand for integrating big data, Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud computing capabilities. The edge AI services expedite making data-driven decisions (e.g., optimizing control, coordination, investment, medical services allocation, etc.). A sample research challenge addresses learning and/or inferencing efficiency of the edge AI service (or microservice) under development that meets the requirements for minimum level of quality of service (QoS), processing power, energy consumption, robustness, extensibility, and/or DevOps. Policy-based federated learning services at edge are typical edge AI use cases in which data processing and management constraints need to be considered in terms of data origin, ownership, heterogeneity, security, and privacy. 5G/6G edge nodes provide unprecedented high QoS wireless operating environments for edge AI services and related applications.

This special issue aims at promoting high-quality research on recent advances in edge AI-as-a-service and at inspiring related research efforts. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Deep-learning services at the edge
Learning-based service/microservice systems running atop edge devices/nodes Learning-based services/microservices hosted by 5G/6G edge nodes Policy-based learning services at the edge Edge-centric distributed or collaborative learning services Edge-centric federated learning services Learning-based event stream processing and/or contextual data enrichment of edge services Learning-based edge service management, optimization, and/or continuous improvement Learning-based security, privacy, trust, and/or risk management of edge services
