—Recent research on edge computing (EC) has proposed federated or collaborative learning technique, where machine learning models are shared among participating edge deployments, thereby benefiting from all available datasets without exchanging them. In addition, EC systems are currently exploiting attaching portable edge devices on drones for data processing close to the sources, to achieve high performance, fast response times and real-time insights. Existing research lack the potential to federate edge resources and manage corresponding service entities running across multiple drones, thus resulting to suboptimal performance. Therefore, we introduce AerialEdge, a federated learning-based orchestration framework for a federated aerial EC system. We propose a federated multi-output linear regression models to estimate multi-task resource requirements and execution time, to select the closest drone deployment having congruent resource availability and flight time to execute ready tasks at any given time. For better utilization of resources, we propose a variant bin-packing optimization approach through gang-scheduling of multi-dependent containerized tasks that coschedules and co-locates tasks tightly on nodes to fully utilize available resources. Extensive experiments on real-world datatrace from Alibaba cluster trace with information on task dependencies show the effectiveness, fast executions, and resource efficiency of our approach.
