IoT sensor data analysis and aggregation, real-time customer engagement, and AR/VR engagement are driving edge computing to a prioritization among businesses.
A slew of recent research finds all kinds of ways to improve neural networks, from compressing the math needed to compute network weights to reducing data bandwidth to contemplating novel distributed computing systems.
Edge computing is being sought out for faster response and cost savings, but there are concerns about security and latency when large volumes of data are processed on such platforms.
It would be the harbinger of an entirely new medium of calculation, harnessing the inexplicable powers of subatomic particles to obliterate the barriers of time in solving incalculable problems. Your part in making it happen may simply be to convince yourself that black is white and up is down.
Six-year-old startup Efinix has created an intriguing twist on the FPGA technology dominated by Intel and Xiliinx; the company hopes its energy-efficient chips will bootstrap the market for embedded AI in the Internet of Things.
Four-year-old startup Flex Logix has taken the wraps off its novel chip design for machine learning. CEO Geoff Tate describes how the chip may take advantage of an "explosion" of inferencing activity in "edge computing," and how Nvidia can't compete on performance.
Stealth startup Cornami on Thursday revealed some details of its novel approach to chip design to run neural networks. CTO Paul Masters says the chip will finally realize the best aspects of a technology first seen in the 1970s.
Cisco, Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson, Dell, HP, and Alef Mobitech have shown that a mobile edge computing platform can be deployed across existing 4G infrastructure to provide 5G services.
IT resources are aggressively being centralized in the cloud, but some cutting edge technologies will need to balance cloud with localized computing power. That's where edge computing comes in.
The new orchestration product is designed to address the physical and power constraints of the network edge.
As the world of edge computing and IoT becomes more distributed, billions of connected devices require increasing levels of compute at the edge. This needs to be secured, managed, and automated, and VMware wants to look after that on behalf of the enterprise.
The first release of its computer vision play, the surveillance appliance is the beginning of Dell Technologies' push for an open approach to IoT and edge computing.
