Many thanks, Andrew, for an informative presentation.

see you next time

Prospector

Thanks for the helpful information!

Data Doctor

Thanks for the show today, folks!

There was a chat with an HR person a while back, I seem to recall... Although that question didn't come up.

Blogger

where does one look to get the hands on skills they need in such a fast pace?

Prospector

@Jessica thanks for the address. Do companies see the chats here are as effective recruiting? I'm curious b/c he's not the first one to say "We're hiring" on a show like this.

Thanks for getting to my question!

Blogger

@sjnrtest: For starters, presumably greater clinical research opportunities in major metros.

manufacturer recommended car maitenance

how does that dffer from edge analytics and predictive maintenance?

Prospector

What kind of opportunities are there for edge analytics in consumer biomedical devices like fitbit?

Prospector

Bandwidth as the biggest driver for these applications... Sounds like a chicken vs. egg position.

Blogger

@Andrew do you find that people who try to use "bolted-on" solutions for IoT tend to find not as good results as those who achieve a complete transformation in the setup?

Data Doctor

would a recommended car maitenance schedule in the book which comes with your vehicle be considered

Is there a significant savings in terms of infrastructure costs and just overall efficiency in moving more processing out to the edge?

@Andrew thanks for the presentation

*(not legal advice, obviously)

Blogger

The attorney in me is simply thinking about the antitrust implications of all of these real-time aftermarket analytics. There seems to be a relative lack of legal literature here -- at least, upon a cursory perusal of some of my go-to sources.

Blogger

seeling the outcome reminds me of the line someone used that no one wants a drill -- only a hole

Data Doctor

Currently, a lot of those effects are determined by talking to the boots on the ground to try to understand the data/analytics. At some point, presumably, a lot of that might go away by way of measuring even more and analyzing even more variables at the edge.

Blogger

sounds like the stereotype of the mailman

Data Doctor

So there is a multi-layered view. Do different specialists focus more on one layer than the other?

Data Doctor

But it'd be good to get Andrew's thoughts on this, so...

ANOTHER QUESTION: What are the network challenges that you see presently and in the future to achieve a more fully enabled edge-analytics world? What will the solution look like/rely on? 5G? LPWAN/NB-IoT?

Blogger

@Joe Don't hold your breath for any of these things. Hype and reality tend to not line up perfectly.

Data Doctor

@Ariella: It's already been the trend for the past few years. The only primary obstacles, from what I've seen, have been cost and scale as pertaining to the network.

(Everybody's hailing 5G as the coming magical, affordable savior. Me, I'm not holding my breath.)

Blogger

Is that the goal to build the sensors into the equipment itself in the future?

Data Doctor

FOLLOWUP Q: So in the future, what sort of analytics will be appropriate for the center? I would tend to think that all edge analytics all the time has scalability issues.

@Murty they are rather small in the default view.

Data Doctor

The edge at 30,000 feet could be a good title.

Data Doctor

Please advise on how to either download slides or expand the slide for better view. Thanks

Prospector

Early warning is the primary economic benefit of setting up sensors on machinery.

Data Doctor

QUESTION FOR ANDREW: As IoT and other such digital-transformation solutions continue to be deployed and evolve, and as edge analytics demand expands accordingly (I presume), what will be the IT-footprint impact on datacenters? What are the other factors of datacenter locationing for edge analytics beyond merely seeking population centers?

Blogger

We have edgy clouds or things that are cloudy around the edges? I think it's more the former.

Data Doctor

We're certainly OK with that!

Data Doctor

A "working" defintiion... heh...

Blogger

I'm glad he finds it "a whole lot of fun."

Data Doctor

@Joe do we have a working or legal definition of "work?"

Data Doctor

"An autonomous car does the work of 7 cars today."

Highly relevant followup --> Who's getting the benefit?

A world of cars that are only autonomous is no longer a world of "cars" in the way that we know it. It's a world where the road systems have been transformed into a mass transit system. So "work" cannot be defined in the same way.

Blogger

7 cars in one, I suppose that's one way to justify the higher cost.

Data Doctor

Hi, guys. Looking forward to the session today.

Blogger

Welcome, everyone. We welcome your questions and comments for your peers in the text chat box labeled "Your Post"

Blogger

Lots to learn on the subject!
