Inés, who comes from Panama, did a research stay at our group, where she also completed her thesis under the supervision of Juan Manuel Corchado and Sara Rodríguez. Her research proposes a technological solution that consists in the design of a global architecture which integrates Edge Computing technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT). The architecture proposed in the research is called the Global Edge Computing Architecture (GECA) and contributes to an efficient processing of data generated by large numbers of IoT devices, which are currently part of our environment.
