TERMINET (nexT gEneRation sMart INterconnectEd ioT) aims at developing a novel and distributed AI solution by leveraging FL over massive numbers of IoT devices and huge amounts of data. The proposed solution will utilize the virtualization, Software Defined Networking (SDN), and network slicing concepts in order to optimize the training performance. The FL will operate autonomously and will scale according to the number and computational capabilities of the available MEC nodes.
In addition, TERMINET will feature an inter-domain learning platform, where inter-domain knowledge will be seamlessly exchanged. Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies will be exploited in order to embed trust among the MEC nodes as well as their data. In addition, lightweight encryption schemes will be utilized in order to ensure the security and privacy of the users. Finally, three use case scenarios across different domains (i.e., energy/manufacturing, health, agriculture) will be prepared in order to validate the performance of the TERMINET platform.
The project BalkanRoad, towards farms with zero carbon, waste, and water footprint, suggests a roadmap for sustainable management strategies for the Balkan agricultural sector.
