Today’s mobile devices with advanced computing and
storage resources are encouraging a whole new class of applications
geared towards context-aware intelligence. However,
for the continuous processing of context-processing algorithms,
interactive human-computing interfaces and augmented-reality
experiences, these devices lack the resource demands. Most of
these intelligent applications rely on the cloud paradigm for
on demand computing, memory and storage resources. While
combining both computing paradigms, finding the best strategy
to deploy and configure intelligent applications, is not straightforward.
In this paper, we analyse the challenges and requirements
for the dynamic deployment of intelligent applications in such a
federated setting. Additionally, a framework that leverages Dynamic
Decision Network (DDN) is presented for decision making.
The DDN-based models deal with the presence of uncertainty
and the partial observability of the context information, as well
as the temporal effects of the decisions to ascertain the Qualityof-
Service and Quality-of-Context requirements. Our initial experiments
with the framework demonstrate the feasibility of our
approach and potential benefits to automatically make the best
decision in the presence of a changing environment addressing
the runtime variability.
