This episode of Over the Edge features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Jay Limbasiya, Global AI & Data Science business Development Lead at Dell Technologies. With a background in the United States Intelligence Community, Jay specializes in AI, data science, analytics, and data management.
Matt and Jay discuss why we should care about the edge, the complexities of deciding where to treat data and the last mile problem. They also talk about the benefits of data lakehouses and the current debate around the dangers of AI.
“You can use this data maybe ten years down the road for something else, right? You can use it for a completely different type of use case you never even thought of. And that's why the data is so valuable. It's not so much the algorithm itself, it's can you capture this data and even save this data for maybe technology that hasn't even come out yet?”
“It definitely doesn't make sense to me to completely say, Hey, the data's too large at the edge, so we're just not gonna consume it… that obviously doesn't make sense. I think there's a efficiency play out here as well. And that efficiency play is, obviously it costs money to store data, so let's make sure we store the right data.”
“What's the value of the data that you're collecting and how can these pieces of data enhance the algorithm at the edge? Because even though you deploy something on the edge in order to refine it for future trends, maybe four years down the road, or three years down the road, you still need data to be able to kind of do that R and D work.”
“The core is actually where you identify, is there data I'm missing? Is there something I haven't even collected?”
