Members of the decentralised AI systems lab of UCD (Dimitris Chatzopoulos, Joana Tirana, John Byabazaire, Vlasis Koutsos, Ioannis Panagiotidis, and Foivos Pournaropoulos – a visiting PhD student from University of Thessaly), one of the MLSysOps partners, visited IBM Research in Dublin on the 29th of May to discuss the overlap in their shared interest in employing AI techniques on the cloud. The agenda included topics around (i) the utilisation of cloud resources for training multi-parameter ML models, (ii) the design of an ML architecture for managing and orchestrating resources on the cloud-edge continuum, and (iii) the adaptive management of distributed applications in cloud-edge-mobile systems.
