Cloud computing is widely utilized in IoT based applications to handle big data whereas edge computing is preferred to deal with real time instant data from sensors and users. Edge of things find applications in automation, smart city, digital healthcare and autonomous systems to enhance the quality of life. Since the data generated by sensors increase in every passing day, it is required to increase the storage capacity and computing power of edge devices. The performance of smart devices and connected vehicles are improved by deploying intelligent computing with smart networking solutions. Edge of things and pervasive intelligence force us to increase the computing power of edge devices using hyperscale computing.  

Intelligent sensors and cameras provide data in the form of signal, image and video and it is necessary to analyze the data using deep learning techniques. Hyperscale computing focuses on storage, networking, and computation to store the acquired data, transmit data through networks and process the data to create actionable results. Due to the increase in intelligent devices and smart systems, pervasive intelligence emerged as a major technology for intelligent decision making with low latency. In smart city applications, edge analytics and smart devices are essential to improve the reliability and performance of communication systems. The special issue focuses on hyperscale computing for edge of things and pervasive intelligence. Proposed submissions should be original, unpublished, and present novel in-depth fundamental research contributions either from a methodological perspective or from an application point of view.
