Edge/cloud Video Analytics

Location of Research: Remote

Live Video Analytics on IoT Edge provides a platform to build intelligent video applications that span the edge and the cloud. Edge computing is an emerging paradigm that distributes computing resources closer to end-users. The need for timely response arises in both human and machine to machine applications (e.g., gaming AR, VR, autonomous drones, and industrial machinery). The goal is to develop a platform that offers the capability to capture, record, and analyze live video along with publishing the results (video and/or video analytics) in real-time. Students will explore online adaptation of video analytics pipeline where the objective is to maximize accuracy under bandwidth and computational power constraints.
