Cloud providers and telcos are all racing to establish thousands of new edge computing locations to bring applications closer to consumers. Edge computing, itself, will reduce latency. But many applications will also require artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver information in near real time – think about autonomous driving. What are some of the edge computing/AI applications that are in hot demand by enterprises? How will owners of edge computing sites deliver AI capabilities that will require complicated data lakes? How much compute, memory and storage can stay at the edge and how much has to remain in more central locations?

11:15-11:30am Partner Keynote: Gavin Horn, Senior Director in Wireless Research, Qualcomm
