Keynote: Perspectives On Edge Opportunities Right Now

Edge computing has many definitions, and can mean different things to different people. At its core, however, is the ability for faster computations and data retrieval meaning greater and quicker insights are derived. But what does this mean in practical terms?

  • What does edge actually mean in layman’s terms right now?
  • What questions still need to be answered about the efficacy of this technology?
  • Use cases and demos of how edge is impacting our clients
  • Future roadmap toward widespread adoption of intelligent edge
