Jeff Ready, CEO, Scale Computing: On the evolution, use cases, and tailwinds of edge

There is a long-standing joke around edge computing and driverless cars. Back in 2019 Mike Fay, then of Dell but now at Amazon Web Services (AWS), told an audience at the IoT Tech Expo event: "If an autonomous car is driving and a deer runs out, you can't send those calculations to the cloud. If you do, you're having venison for dinner."

The need for lower latency to enable the types of computation required for edge use cases has never been more apparent. Jeff Ready,...
