By Prof. Vincenzo Piuri, IEEE Follow, University of Milan, Italy.
Recent years have seen a growing interest among users in the migration of their applications to Cloud computing and Internet-of-Things environments. However, due to high complexity, Cloud-based and Internet-of-Things infrastructures need advanced components for supporting applications and advanced management techniques for increasing efficiency.
Adaptivity and autonomous learning abilities become extremely useful to support configuration and dynamic adaptation of these infrastructures to the changing needs of the users as well as to create adaptable applications. This self-adaptation ability is increasingly essential especially for non-expert managers as well as for application designers and developers with limited competences in tools for achieving this ability.
Artificial intelligence is a set of techniques which greatly can improve both the creation of applications and the management of these infrastructures.
This talk will discuss the use of artificial intelligence in supporting the creation of applications in cloud and IoT infrastructures as well as their use in the various aspects of infrastructure management.
Vincenzo Piuri has received his Ph.D. in computer engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Italy (1989). He is Full Professor in computer engineering at the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy (since 2000). He has been Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano, Italy and Visiting Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and at George Mason University, USA.
