Edge computing means computing done on hardware devices at or near the source of data. For A.I. solutions, by processing data locally instead of transmitting data to a faraway server or the cloud, an edge device with A.I. software installed can analyze the data and produce outputs with minimal delay. It also means that A.I. softwares can run on devices without internet connection. Edge computing eliminates the limitation of bandwidth, internet speed and latency problem of data transmission, which will be an versatile enabler for many broader use cases, for example within the Internet of Things (IoT) and potentially bundled with other enterprise offerings such as 5G private networks.
We have extensive experiences with different kinds of edge devices and have successfully deployed our A.I. solutions with those devices. Here are some of the hardware we use for our edge A.I. solutions.
