HOW AIOT AND EDGE INTELLIGENCE POWERING THE NEXT TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION
NA | April 16, 2020
The advent of the Internet of Things is already changing people’s daily lives, and its integration with artificial intelligence gives rise to a completely new technology landscape, Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT). The convergence of both technologies is set to redefine the future of industrial automation and lead the Industry 4.0 revolution. Conversely, the increasing use of connected devices generates a tremendous amount of data that requires processing to extract meaningful insights. Thus, the new level of processing power at the Edge offers near real-time insight from data collected, assisting in making data-driven decisions by sending that data back and forth to the servers and other smart computing processes.The latest evolution of intelligent edge applications promises real-time insights by assessing data at the edge itself. Edge Intelligence allows data processing for decisions to be made locally, without sending back to the cloud.AI on the network edge identifies and reports on occurrences detected by sensors and results in real-time analytics, fully deployed intelligence, integration of AI technologies, and completion of the lifecycle. Since AIoT devices are constantly producing data, analytics should be implemented in distinct ways to get the best possible outcomes.The advancements in AI also provides a great improvement in handling decision making at the edge. With intelligence at the edge, decentralized nodes of a system are empowered to perform different kinds of data handling that may have traditionally been handled at a central point in a system. At the edge, the edge network components or nodes can process the data intelligently, possibly bundling, refining or encrypting it for sending into the data warehouse, which will enhance the agility of data-handling systems, as well as enable their safety.
