Alexis then gives us an amazing 30,000 foot view outline of what Intel is seeing regarding current macro trends around AI at the Edge, with some of the current macro trends regarding AI at the Edge.
In particular we delve into some of the challenges Alexis sees as being the next frontier of enterprise transformation, how Data-driven experiences – AI from data centers, to software, to outer edges of the networks, and how Data and compute closest to the point of interaction will transform data driven decision making, and some of the challenges around bridging people, business and things for enhanced experiences, and what it takes to offer improved automation and cost savings.
We then delve into work Intel are doing currently and Alexis offers us a view of some of the trends across various markets regarding adoption, challenges and opportunities with AI at the Edge. Specifically we discuss enterprise adoption and the need for Edge Computing, the need for actionable insights.
We also discuss challenges presented by issues such as network bottlenecks, latency, and the mounting issues raised by increasing demand for bandwidth and ever increasing network demands as devices continue to generate increasingly vast volumes of data, increasing needs for full end-to-end infrastructure and designs, comprehensive security, data regulation, and overall cohesive management of all of these environments and systems / networks / platforms and more.
Alexis walks us through Intel’s customer approach as far as how organisations should go about turning data into actionable insights, some of the challenges around turning data into action, how Intel’s Gen 3 Intel Movidius VPUs and Intel Scalable Processor platforms are helping with these challenges – where solutions like OpenVINO are helping. We also discuss the latest news around Intel AI Builders, and Intel Selection Solutions for AI, about Federated Learning, and Alexis shares a recent related customer story around GE Healthcare and work they are doing with medical data, imaging and analytics to process data from MRI machines, and where Deep Learning is playing part in this success story.
We wrap up with Alexis sharing her thoughts and advice around what decision makers be considering in their approach to leveraging “AI at the Edge” over the next 12 to 18 months.
