The notion of edge computing introduces new computing functions away from centralized locations and closer to the network edge

and thus facilitating new applications and services. This enhanced computing paradigm is provides new opportunities to applications
developers, not available otherwise. In this talk, I will discuss why placing computation functions at the extreme edge of our network
infrastructure, i.e., in wireless Access Points and home set-top boxes, is particularly beneficial for a large class of emerging applications.
I will discuss a specific approach, called ParaDrop, to implement such edge computing functionalities, and use examples from different
domains -- smarter homes, sustainability, and intelligent transportation -- to illustrate the new opportunities around this concept.
