The popularity of smartphones and social networks makes taking and sharing of pictures extremely simple and convenient. As of 2017, there are 2.4 billion active smartphone users worldwide. Images that were taken by smartphone users alone amount to petabytes of data generated every day. Cloud storage has made it easier than ever for mobile phone users to share their pictures on social media and access their pictures from multiple devices. As a result, most smartphone users opt to store their pictures in the cloud. These pictures inevitably end up as image data stored in Internet Data Centers (IDC). As a result, image processing computation including transcoding, thumbnail generation, and image recognition, has generated massive computational workload requirements in the IDC.
