As Internet of Things (IoT) evolves further and expands into Internet of Everything (IoE), high-speed data processing, analytics and shorter response times are increasingly becoming the need of the hour. Edge intelligence refers to computing that pushes intelligence, data processing, analytics and communication capabilities down to where the data originates, that is, at network gateways or directly at the endpoints. Edge computing is a distributed information technology architecture that assists with IoT infrastructure. This Future Tech TOE provides a detailed overview on edge intelligence, including technology snapshot, various research and development initiatives, development trends, key application sector, key innovators, and patent/IP trends.
The Future Tech TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures emerging innovations in research and development, or profile existing technologies which have seen a resurgence in terms of new markets and applications. It usually provides a technology overview, drivers, challenges, research and development, analyst insights and key patent information. In some cases, technology convergence scenarios and future growth opportunities are outlined. It covers innovations and technologies in a variety of industry spaces including manufacturing, sensors, electronics, information and communications technologies, networks, lighting technologies, healthcare, medical devices, materials and coatings, and developments in the energy sector that contribute toward a sustainable and greener world.
