You Need to Move from Cloud Computing to Edge Computing Now!

Google TPU

Edge Computing refers to the computations that take place at the ‘outside Edge’ of the internet, as opposed to Cloud Computing, where computation happens at a central location. Edge Computing typically executes close to the data source, for example onboard or adjacent to a connected camera.

A self-driving car is a perfect example of Edge Computing. In order for cars to drive down any road safely, it must observe the road in real-time and stop if a person walks in front of the car. In such a case, processing visual information and making a decision is done at the Edge, using Edge Computing.
