AI-powered eVolution towards opEn and secuRe edGe architEctures

VERGE is a research and innovation project under the European Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU), a Public-Private Partnership that aims to facilitate and develop industrial leadership in Europe in 5G and 6G networks and services.  

The main goal of VERGE is to provide an integrated approach on how to tackle the challenges of edge computing evolution, described around three main pillars:

1.-   “edge for AI”, namely a flexible, modular and converged edge platform design, unifying the lifecycle management and closed-loop automation for cloud-native applications, Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) and network services across the edge-cloud compute continuum for ultra-high computational performance.

2.-  “AI for edge”, namely an AI-powered portfolio of solutions leveraging the multitude of collected  metrics for intelligent management and orchestration.

3.- “security, privacy and trustworthiness of AI-based models at the edge”, providing a suite of methods to protect AI models against adversarial attacks, increase their explainability and reliability, and ensure data privacy.  

VERGE project has received funding from the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) under the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement 101096034.

UK participants in Horizon Europe Project VERGE are supported by UKRI grant numbers 10071211 (Samsung Electronics (UK) Limited) and 10061781 (King’s College London).
