The Edge Is Where It’s At


As we move computing power to the edge, this talk resonates even more. Two - that’s two conversations just yesterday that I had where we talked about bringing the power of computing to your pocket.

Think about it - we glibly talk about the ‘supercomputer in our pocket’ - and we use it to ‘like’ Facebook posts, send messages and whatever else it is you do - but hardly supercomputer activity.
