NEW! Select Edge Track Sessions Now Open to Exhibit Hall & Keynote Pass Attendees

Simply defined, Edge can be considered where people and devices or things connect with the network. Compute-intensive edge applications, including Internet of Things (IOT), augmented reality (AR), and artificial intelligence (AI), interact with their environment based on ever-changing conditions. Where should this complex data be transferred, stored, and analyzed?

During the Inaugural Edge track sessions, data scientists share their real-world living-on-edge experiences of leveraging this shifting space to increasingly deliver on the promise of cloud and its growing complexity.
