What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. AI can be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind, such as learning and problem-solving. The primary goal of AI is to create technology that allows computers and machines to function in an intelligent manner, enabling them to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

The hardware required to use AI can vary depending on the specific AI application. Some AI algorithms are computationally intensive and require powerful hardware to run effectively.

What is IoT?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical objects — devices, vehicles, appliances, and other items embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies — designed to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet. IoT extends internet connectivity beyond traditional devices like desktop and laptop computers, smartphones, and tablets to an array of devices and everyday things that utilize embedded technology to communicate and interact with the external environment, all via the Internet.

What is Edge Computing?

Edge Computing refers to the practice of processing data geographically closer to where it’s being generated, at the network’s edge, rather than in a centralized data-processing warehouse. This proximity to data at its source can lead to significant improvements in response times and save bandwidth. Edge Computing acts as a decentralized extension of the cloud and is particularly useful in scenarios where low latency or bandwidth constraints require immediate, local processing of data, such as in autonomous vehicles, industrial robotics, and smart cities technologies.

The Emergence of AIoT: A Revolutionary Symbiosis

When you combine Artificial Intelligence (AI) with the Internet of Things (IoT) and imbue it with Edge Computing capabilities, you pave the way for the advent of the AIoT — the Artificial Intelligence of Things. This is where AI meets the vast network of interconnected devices, enabling smarter decision-making at the source of data generation.

AIoT represents a transformative collaboration that breathes life into autonomous systems with cognitive abilities, elevating the efficiency, accuracy, and functionality of connected devices. It’s a step closer to a future where smart devices don’t just collect data, but also analyse and learn from it in real-time, leading to unprecedented levels of automation and predictive analytics in industries ranging from healthcare to manufacturing, and homeland security to urban development. With AIoT, the future of smart, self-sufficient systems is not just an aspiration but a tangible reality taking shape before our eyes.

Artificial Intelligence, IoT and Edge: AIoT Computing Solutions

How to bring an Edge AI Solution to market

  • Development kits to help test and prototype your edge AI solution are readily available, but DEV Kits are rarely suitable for use in the environment where they will ultimately be deployed.
  • A purpose-built industrial-grade AI system based on Nvidia Jetson, Intel Movidius, or a high-end GPU, will be more appropriate and will offer more reliable long-term operation.
  • Our edge AI systems are designed for use in environments where shock, vibration, or extreme temperatures can be a problem, and will run 24/7 for many years.
