Mobile multimedia computing is becoming more and more critical in the area of wireless communication. In the face of increasingly complex tasks, the scale of multimedia data has become massive. Obviously, the real time data processing is the major problem for mobile multimedia computing. In recent years, deep learning has made significant breakthroughs in many areas of artificial intelligence, including CNN, RNN, and GAN. However, the traditional model needs uploading and handling data at the cloud end, which cannot meet the requirements of timeliness and mobility.

Edge computing is proposed as a new computing paradigm where resources like computation and storage are placed closer to data and information source. On the one hand, edge computing helps cloud to extend its services to the edge of the network, which improves the response time and user experience. On the other hand, the developing of the mobile app leads to the huge amount of data generated on the user side, and there are also a lot of smart devices available, it is a natural way to process data on edge. In a word, edge computing paradigm greatly saves the bandwidth of the backbone network and improves the end-to-end latency. It brings new possibilities for complex applications, intelligent services, novel security, and privacy solutions, especially for the researches, which depend on the huge amount of data.

We aim to point out that mobile multimedia computing shall be paid attention to use edge computing. It means that all the mobile devices that can handle multimedia data for smart processing. This special issue focuses on recent advances in architecture, algorithms, Optimization, and models for AI-based Mobile Multimedia Computing for Data-Smart Processing. Original, unpublished contributions and invited articles, reflecting various aspects of mobile computing are encouraged.

The topics of interest for the special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • AI-based Mobile multimedia networking framework
