On this episode, Ian and Matt discuss the current state, and future of edge computing, the vision for this podcast, and why now is an inflection point for the Edge community.
“Humans operate in ones of seconds or fractions of a second, but for a machine that's actually a glacial amount of time. The kind of latencies that machines care about is milliseconds, microseconds, and sometimes even nanoseconds.”
“In this era that we're entering now, with what we predict to be billions of things that need to be analyzed in near real-time, generating copious amounts of data 24/7, there's a demand for a new kind of processing, and this demand has created this entire market for edge computing.”
“Edge computing is a very important evolution in the internet and the way that we interact with our world using computers.
“Things change quickly, so having a weekly podcast that is authoritative and takes the time and the patience to go really deep with practice area experts is really important…The timing is perfect to come up with a podcast and bring that diversity of voices to a global audience.”
