Speech Title: An LSTM based approach for Load Balancing in Cloud Computing

Abstract: The notion of cloud computing is used for providing service as a utility over the internet via dynamic provisioning of resources. Cloud computing suffers from several issues that need to be resolved before its true realization. Load balancing is one of those challenges that requires significant research consideration. In this talk, we will talk about load balancing challenges in cloud computing. The talk presents a taxonomy of those approaches. We will also present a long short term memory (LSTM) based approach for load balancing in cloud environments. Deep learning has been used as a crosscutting solution for several research problems. Using LSTM, one can model long term dependencies between current and past data. This modelling of future state has been utilized and this talk will present a solution that predicts future state of the VM. Based on that, one can proactively migrate VM in case of a possible overload prediction.
