Who we are
The Edge Computing Hub is a growing and dynamic community of academic researchers and industry specialists that bring together the two worlds of computer science/IT and telecoms for making ‘Edge Computing’ a reality.
Edge computing allows for processing data closer to users, thus making Internet applications more responsive, reliable and secure. Our research is mindful of people-at-the-heart of technology.
Our vision is to tackle key systems centric challenges for deploying massively distributed edge systems by embedding intelligence into key decision-making activities. Find out more about What We Do.
The ECIT Institute and the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen's University Belfast have partnered with Rakuten Mobile to deliver the vision.
