Edge AI: the wait is (almost) over

Since the introduction of artificial intelligence to the data centre, AI has been loath to leave it. With large tracts of floorspace dedicated to servers comprising leading-edge chips that can handle the computational demands for training the latest in AI models, as well as inference via end-user connections to the Cloud, data centres are the ideal environment for facilitating much of what AI has to offer. And yet, over the past decade, AI has pu...
