    Abstract

    With the recent advancement in wireless communication and networks, we are at the doorstep of the Tactile Internet. The Tactile Internet aims to enable the skill delivery and thereafter democratize the specialized skills for many emerging applications (e.g., remote medical, industrial machinery, remote robotics, autonomous driving). In this article, we start with the motivation of applying intelligent edge computing for computation offloading in the Tactile Internet. Afterward, we outline the main research challenges to leverage edge intelligence at the master, network, and controlled domain of the Tactile Internet. The key research challenges in the Tactile Internet lie in its stringent requirements such as ultra-low latency, ultra-high reliability, and almost zero service outage. We also discuss major entities in intelligent edge computing and their role in the Tactile Internet. Finally, several potential research challenges in edge intelligence for the Tactile Internet are highlighted.
