Data has gravity. It is well known that the network edge, in the Internet of Things, is where the critical mass of digital data resides, and where it is collected. Scalability bottlenecks to ubiquitous AI, such as power consumption, bandwidth, latency, connectivity and security have led to recent innovations in on-device processing and edge infrastructure such as micro-data centers and distributed computing architecture. The Edge Computing market will reach $34 billion by 2023, growing at 35% annually, unleashing a wave of services and applications at the network edge that can be optimized with artificial intelligence. As a recent explosion in hardware innovation provides the necessary compute to migrate diverse AI workloads to the Edge, a new generation of edge-native and edge-enhanced software applications is emerging.
