This NESSI position paper analyses the research and innovation landscape of the cognitive computing continuum and makes suggestions for future research directions in this field.
The Horizon Europe Work Programme 2021-2022 called for research in the computing continuum to address two main goals: a higher-level operating system for the smart Internet of Things, embedded in a compute continuum from IoT-to-edge-to-cloud, and an AI-enabled cloud-edge framework which automatically adapts to changes in application behaviour and data processing needs. The EC workshop “Digital autonomy in the computing continuum” identified further research challenges regarding the computing continuum and stressed the importance of AI-enabled management and orchestration approaches across the entire continuum. NESSI subscribes to these proposals and suggests additional research targets with the aim of developing and exploring the full potential of a cognitive computing continuum.
