Abstract: The emerging Internet of Things needs edge-computing – this must be well-known by now. In turn, edge computing needs infrastructure decentralisation. What is not necessarily established yet is that infrastructure decentralisation needs a distributed model of Internet governance and decentralised trust schemes. In this talk, we’ll discuss the necessary features of a decentralised edge-computing ecosystem and list the components that need to be designed, as well the challenges that need to be addressed. In specific, we’ll talk about i) Computation-Centric Architectures, ii) Secure Payment Systems, iii) Rewards and iv) Programmable Privacy.

Bio: Ioannis Psaras is an EPSRC Early Career Fellow and Lecturer of Computer Networks at the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of UCL . His interests are in the areas of Internet routing and congestion control, Information-Centric Networks, Edge- and Fog-Computing and Mobile, Opportunistic Networks. Lately, he has been investigating the applications of Distributed Ledger Technology and Blockchains to networking problems. He is generally interested in resource allocation and management of both existing and future Internet architectures. Ioannis has received four (4) Best Paper Awards for his contributions to high-quality conferences and workshops, all in the area of Information-Centric Networks and mobile communications. He has been actively involved in the ICN Research Group (ICNRG) of the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) from its very first days. Ioannis has been awarded and leads a number of EU- and UK-funded projects, with total budget of more than €2M. All of his recent projects focus on Information-Centric Networking, mobile ad hoc communications, edge- and fog-computing and blockchains. More information can be found at:
