Cloud IoT is Getting Edgy and Intelligent: Trends from Google Next

Posted by Vivek Mohan on 02 August 2018

 One of the hottest new terms in the technology world is ‘Edge Computing.’ If you’re not familiar with the term, the ‘Edge’ is simply a device or hub that processes data and makes decisions closer to the end device rather than sending data to the Cloud for a response. This allows for lower latency and in some cases additional security. The Edge device may still send data to the Cloud to improve machine learning (ML) models and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, but this may be a subset of data received at the Edge and sent less frequently.
