Novel ultra-high throughput and ultra-low latency services in application domains involving immersive human-to-human and human-to-machine interactions require fundamental changes to networking architectures and integration with computational resources in the cloud-edge continuum.
To support such communication and experiences in extended reality scenarios, the 6G ecosystem must envision an end-to-end, cloud-native architecture that is able to orchestrate both networking and computational resources efficiently.
In the Horizon Europe project SPIRIT, the candidate will work on solutions for AI-based resource management to support immersive, collaborative telepresence applications on Europe’s first multi-site experimentation framework, including but not limited to the following topics:
