Presentation: Edge-Computing a New Way to Interact with Human and Computers in The Metaverse

Edge Computing, as we are all aware now, releases the technology stack from the cloisters of data centers and large server racks to where the data is. However, edge computing also has a great impact on how we think not just about the data but how we use the data in smarter predictability and decisions making using new thinking on the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Metaverse on the other hand is opening the door on how we interact with one another and the world. This presentation takes step back and takes a new look on the area of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and redefines and positions Edge Computing in the context of that new thinking in terms of opening a new outlook to Metaverse to interact with both human and humanoids. This presentation further takes the area of Edge Computing on other areas of modern technology such as Blockchain, Digital Twin, Augmented and Virtual Reality as an extension of Internet of Things (IoT) as well as Quantum Computing. The author describes each of these areas and their relationships to Edge Computing through his own innovative works and beyond.

Presentation: Cloud & Cost Optimization

Cloud as we all know has revolutionized the industry. Cloud gives velocity and elasticity to build solutions and businesses. Oftentimes the cost grows with the growth but that is only the best case. The promise of cloud is that you pay only for what you use. The cost optimization does not have to end there, it could just be the beginning. Just like cloud migration, cost optimization in the cloud can be managed and achieved using similar techniques.

Presentation: Importance of Edge Computing for a Successful AI Machine Learning (AI ML) and Advanced Analytics Strategy

Generating prompt insights from data using machine learning (AI ML) and advanced analytics serves as a fundamental catalyst for driving business transformation. This presentation covers:

    • Benefits and basic definitions of AI ML and Advanced Analytics and current challenges with common patterns of implementation in these areas around data volume, latency, and security.
    • Components  for a successful strategy and why distributed computing should be considered as a critical component in this strategy
    • How Edge Computing as a distributed computing paradigm can address challenges related to data volume, latency, and security by processing data closer to the source, therefore, enabling more real-time insights, improved data privacy, and efficient resource utilization.
    • Edge Computing design patterns, future of Edge Computing, and examples.
