The expected diversity of services, use cases, and applications in I5.0 require a flexible, adaptable, and programmable AI architecture that optimises the edge vs cloud AI to maximise the performance of the overall system. In the face of this challenge, TALON introduces an AI orchestrator that envisions transforming the I5.0 into an automated intelligent platform by exploiting advances in edge networks and bringing intelligence near sensors, in embedded systems with limited computational/storage/communication resources, as well as the integration of advanced and adaptive sensors and perception.

In this direction, TALON’s AI orchestrator maximizes both globally and individual users and systems capabilities without violating the design parameters of each application. In particular, the orchestrator selects AI datasets, algorithms, metrics and models based on the application. This creates a new system architecture that makes the most by jointly optimizing the edge and cloud resources, enabling centralized, distributed as well as hybrid intelligence and transforming the AI network into a low-power computer, which will be able to use underutilized (commercial and business) resources.

Likewise, by following a holistic optimization approach and leveraging the developments in blockchain, TALON aims at supporting end-to-end (e2e) personalized and perpetual security and privacy. Finally, to accommodate the particularities of the TALON architecture that are generated due to the use of novel building blocks, such as AI orchestrator, blockchain, edge networking, and DTs, a new experimentally-verified theoretical framework will be presented
