1. A method, comprising:
identifying a plurality of edge computing devices available to execute a computing task for a client device;
determining a first latency of transmitting data between a first edge computing device and a second edge computing device, from the plurality of edge computing devices;
determining a second latency of transmitting data from the client device to one or more of the plurality of edge computing devices;
determining a set of edge computing devices, from the plurality of edge computing devices, to execute the computing task based at least in part on the first and second latencies; and
facilitating execution of the computing task using the set of edge computing devices, wherein the client device transmits a portion of the computing task directly to each edge computing device of the set of edge computing devices.
