Developing at The Edge: Building AI into Edge Devices

With an increasing demand for data to be processed, analysed and – in some cases – stored at the edge of an IoT network, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to develop on edge hardware (sensors, gateways) and ensure they have the intelligence and CPU capability to deliver what is needed of them. Whether that be driving greater efficiency of mission-critical applications, reduce connectivity and bandwidth costs, or to provide insights that will enable further innovation across the business.

This session will explore the intricacies and issues associated with choosing, and then building on, intelligent edge hardware and software.
