New algorithm based on the behavior of gulls improves edge computing

While the enthusiasm for cloud computing has not blown over, there adjuncts to the services it provides that have already come over the horizon to bring certain aspects of “cloud” closer to the user—so-called edge computing. By bringing certain resources closer to the user’s own computer, edge computing can improve performance and reduce lag, or latency, between user command and system response. However, increasing demands on edge services mean that their great promise might not be fulfilled in an increasingly connected and mobile world.
