Paper Abstract

With the rise of small, networked sensors, the volume of data generated increasingly require curation by AI to analyze which events are of sufficient importance to report to human operators. We consider the ultimate limit of edge computing, when it is impractical to employ external resources for the curation, but individual devices have insufficient computing resources to perform the analytics themselves. In a previous paper we introduced a decenralized method that distributes the analytics over the network of devices, employing simulated annealing, based on physics-inspired Metropolis Monte Carlo. If the present paper we discuss the capability of this method to balance the energy consumption of the placement on a network of heterogeneous resources. We introduce the balanced utilization index (BUI), an adaptation of Jain’s Fairness Index, to measure this balance.
