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.
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.
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?
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?
"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.
