Edge, Fog and Cloud Abstract: Decomposition of network functions along the cloud-to-things continuum is leading to new questions on what can be done on network edge. We explore the opportunities and discuss the challenges of fog computing, through examples in mobile networks, IoT and dispersive AI. Bio: Mung Chiang is the John A. Edwardson Dean of the College of Engineering at Purdue University. Previously he was the Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. His research on net- working received the 2013 Alan T. Waterman Award, the highest honor to US young scientists and engineers. His textbooks and online courses reached over 250,000 students since 2012. He founded the Princeton EDGE Lab in 2009, which bridges the theory-practice gap in edge networking research by spanning from proofs to prototypes. He also co-founded a few startup companies in mobile data, IoT and AI, and co-founded the global nonprofit Open Fog Consortium.
