Real-Time Edge Intelligence

This article argues that a key new frontier for the real-time systems research community lies in developing the architectural and algorithmic foundations of real-time artificial intelligence. As always, by “real-time” we do not mean fast (or “streaming”), but rather “with a capability to respond predictably to different urgency (and criticality) requirements”. A key challenge in modern AI is perception. Machine…

The Paradox of Information Access

A significant contribution of the embedded systems research community to a broad spectrum of modern-day applications has been the attainment of dependability of various technological artifacts in the face of increasing unknowns. The term “dependability” here is used broadly to mean assurances on freedom from unwanted behavior. For instance, research on temporal guarantees offered solutions for satisfaction of time constraints…
