Nowadays, with the widespread application of the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile devices are renovating our lives. The data generated by mobile devices has reached a massive level. The traditional centralized processing is not suitable for processing the data due to limited computing power and transmission load. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) has been proposed to solve these problems. Because of limited computation ability and battery capacity, tasks can be executed in the MEC server. However, how to schedule those tasks becomes a challenge, and is the main topic of this piece. In this paper, we design an efficient intelligent algorithm to jointly optimize energy cost and computing resource allocation in MEC. In view of the advantages of deep learning, we propose a Deep Learning-Based Traffic Scheduling Approach (DLTSA). We translate the scheduling problem into a classification problem. Evaluation demonstrates that our DLTSA approach can reduce energy cost and have better performance compared to traditional scheduling algorithms.
