The Future of Sensors on The Edge: What’s In It For You and Us?
May 18, 2022
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
We’re living 'on the edge', but in ways you might not be aware of: edge computing. The Buzz 1: Edge computing means putting processing power, software services, and data as close as possible to end users – like you – where the speed of light is still too slow for data packets traveling from server to server across thousands of miles of fiber. It's also less exposed to cyberattack and less prone to breaches. The Buzz 2: Edge computing is used to create smarter buildings, cities, work spaces, retail experiences, digital wind farms, and factory floors. Intelligent edge devices include smartphones, smart home bots, smart watches, in-hospital patience monitoring, medical instruments, cloud gaming, Wall Street trading tools, and autonomous vehicles. The Buzz 3: An appetizing use case: farms. Moisture sensors embedded in the soil tell farmers where and when to water. Drones fly over fields to spot pest infestations. Smart harvesters use computer vision and AI to separate wheat from chaff as they plow. Precision agriculture in rural areas relies on 5G connections and edge computing devices. Your next meal will likely be brought to you by technology. We’ll ask Eric Simone at ClearBlade, Don DeLoach at Rocket Wagon Venture Studios, Jeff Kimmel at Elipsa and Jason Shepherd at Zededa for their take on The Future of Sensors on The Edge: What’s In It For You and for Society?
