Hi Pengyuan

What you are looking for is Named Function Networking.

You still don’t need to embed data into Interests.
Instead, both the command (lambda function)  and input data are published
as Data packets.
To execute a function, you send an Interest that names the result, whose
parameters carry the *names* of command and input data.
The network will find a middle box execute the command, which includes
retrieving the input data by name.

Yours, Junxiao
