6G mobile networks will most probably emerge as a wide envelop of wired and wireless technologies to satisfy even the most demanding applications. Yet, their dependence to distributed AI at the edge poses significant challenges at design-time and runtime. On the one hand, edge computing pushes our computing paradigm to lower energy efficiency and intensity as it cannot harvest on the benefits of computing instances concentration (i.e. optimized cooling and management overhead) at ultra-large data centers. On the other hand, the promise of edge computing is to enable ultra reliable and low latency applications that the current paradigm does not facilitate. A main barrier for power efficient ultra reliable and ultra low latency edge computing is the disjoint optimization of the network connecting the computing instances and the schedule of tasks to those instances. For instance, while Kubernetes allocates tasks to computing instances, SDN controllers separately optimize their network paths that interconnect them.
The main objective of this PhD position is to explore novel methods/techniques from distributed AI domain able to capture the requirements of interconnected tasks, the short/long-term availability of computing instances, the short/long-term capacity of network links and design at runtime ultra reliable and low latency network and compute slices.
As part of the Advanced Networking Lab and the Center for Wireless Technology (CWTe), the project invites candidates with strong analytical skills and will to apply and experiment with novel approaches on our computing cluster, 5G Core, Backhaul and/or Radio Access Network laboratory testbeds. The position is embedded to a large European wide consortium HiCONNECTs of 45 partners (Nvidia, Thermo Fisher Scientific, NXP Semiconductors, to name but a few).Job requirements
