During the last decade, with the increasing availability of unlimited storages and processing power, data processing migrated first from on-premise to cloud data centres (cloud computing) and now, from cloud to edge nodes closure to the source of generation (edge computing).

Traditionally, AI algorithms have been deployed on cloud, since AI algorithms crunch huge amount of data which requires massive amount of storage and computing resources. But in many applications, decision making needs to be in real-time, which is why AI-based data processing needs to be local (on edge) i.e. closer to sources of data generation to make it possible!

What it Edge Computing?

Edge computing refers to have computing capacity/infrastructure closure to the source of data. …
