The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) creates a growing range of new challenges that cannot be adequately addressed by the current cloud computing paradigm alone. Fog computing has emerged to fill the gaps by extending computing, networking, management, and control functions to anywhere along the cloud-to-things continuum to best meet user requirements. The immersive fogs, with close collaboration with the clouds, will also create new business opportunities, enable disruptive new business models, and significantly reshape industry landscapes. The industries, from chipmakers to networking companies to software companies to application providers to IoT vertical technology providers and users are devoting significant efforts to develop fog technologies. The many profound research challenges in fog computing are also drawing a booming interest in the academia. In this talk, I will discuss the impact and the opportunities fog computing will bring.


For over 25 years, Dr. Tao Zhang, an IEEE Fellow, has been in various technical and executive positions in leading strategy planning, research, and product development, which has led to disruptive technology, standards, and products in fog computing, IoT, vehicular networks, all-IP cellular networks (3G/4G), and fiber optic networks.

He joined Cisco in 2012 as the Chief Scientist /CTO for Smart Connected Vehicles. He is with Cisco’s Corporate Strategy Group, where he drives strategies, technologies, and global eco-systems for Fog Computing and IoT security. Prior to Cisco, he was Chief Scientist and Director of Wireless and Vehicular Networks at Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bell Communications Research). 

Dr. Zhang is a Co-Founder and a Board Director of the Open Fog Consortium. He was a Co-Founder and a founding Board Director of the Connected Vehicle Trade Association (CVTA). He is the CIO and a Board Governor of the IEEE Communications Society (2016 and 2017). Dr. Zhang holds over 50 US patents and co-authored 2 books “Vehicle Safety Communications: Protocols, Security, and Privacy” (2012) and “IP-Based Next Generation Wireless Networks” (2004). He is a Chair Professor at National Chiao Tung University and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. He has been an advisory board member for multiple organizations. He cofounded and served on key leadership roles for multiple international conferences and has been on editorial boards or a guest editor for numerous technical journals.
