Last updated: 2021-01-29 12:32

Strategic Goals

Internet applications are increasingly running on edge networks, to reduce latency, increase scalability, resilience, and security, and permit local decision making. However, today’s state of the art, the gossip and peer-to-peer models, give no solution for defining general-purpose computations on edge networks, i.e., computation with shared mutable state.

Solutions Developed / Used

The goal of LightKone is to develop a scientifically sound and industrially validated model for doing general-purpose computation on edge networks.
