In this paper, we investigate the recent studies on multimedia edge computing, from sensing not only traditional visual/audio data but also individuals' geographical preference and mobility behaviors, to performing distributed machine learning over such data using the joint edge and cloud infrastructure and using evolutional strategies like reinforcement learning and online learning at edge devices to optimize the quality of experience for multimedia services at the last mile proactively. We

By showing the recent research studies and industrial solutions, we also provide future directions towards high-quality multimedia services over edge computing.
