IoT NY #53: Exploring Edge Computing on IoT Day

The number of connected machines (20+ billion, not including smartphones or traditional computers/servers) has already eclipsed our own human population (8 billion). Many of these devices exist at "the edge" or away from a central computational system, whether on-premise or in a cloud environment. The International Data Corporation (IDC) has concluded that by 2019 at-least 40% of IOT data will be stored, processed, analyzed and acted upon close to, or at the edge of the network. These edge devices have computational capabilities built in or are part of a local network that can process data with limited resources, as is the case with autonomous vehicles, wearable devices, or smart city type installations. In an intelligent edge setup, the edge network components or nodes process the data intelligently, possibly aggregating, downsampling, or encrypting it for transit into a central data storage system. Edge Intelligence has the promise improve the agility of data-handling systems, as well as their security and reliability. Ultimately, as devices process data continuously about the world they exist in, observing it moving around them or as they move through it themselves, we can learn about the patterns, routines and movements of our physical systems in real-time.
