Swarmchestrate is an EU-funded research project under the Horizon program, focused on investigating decentralized and self-adaptive approaches for processing the substantial amount of data generated in the Cloud-to-Edge continuum. This project harnesses recent advances in Swarm computing as well as emerging technologies such as distributed AI, distributed ledger systems, and decentralized identity management to create a truly autonomous and self-organizing application management system. The project is a collaboration between different European universities, organizations and the Distributed and Operating Systems (DOS) group.
The Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) conducts research on the foundations of Artificial Intelligence in cooperation with national and international institutions. Within BIFOLD, DOS will develop and evaluate new methods for the scalable, distributed processing of large amounts of data. In particular, we will focus on performance modeling and continuous optimization of data processing systems operating in heterogeneous environments and on varying data. The goal is to capture the key characteristics of constantly changing computing environments and have distributed processing systems adapt appropriately to major changes, so the required quality of service can be provided as far as possible and even in case of failures.
