IoT and Edge Convergence, Moving towards a European Single Market
Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and edge computing are at the core of digitalisation, with key industrial sectors seeing great potential in these technologies. New IoT and edge capabilities drive the decentralisation of architectures and topologies and accelerate the decarbonisation of applications in industrial sectors.
Edge computing has also triggered a paradigm shift in cloud computing. There is a clear need to orchestrate resources to create a “computing continuum”. We are seeing calls for a new operating system at the edge for decentralised IoT/IIoT computing architectures and real-time processing.
Open industrial IoT edge computing platforms must strive for leadership to address the challenges of the evolving digital age.
We will demonstrate how this can be done by using IoT/IIoT as a driver, what are the opportunities and challenges for European industries as well as future outlook of what Europe needs to do in order to reap the benefits of the new digital revolution.
We will also discuss and make proposals on how Europe can:
- Put IoT/IIoT and edge computing are at the core of digitalisation, with key industrial sectors seeing great potential in these technologies
- Drive the decentralisation of architectures with new IoT and edge computing capabilities and topologies, and accelerate the decarbonisation of applications in industrial sectors
- Orchestrate resources to form a “computing continuum”
- Design new operating system at the edge for decentralised IoT/IIoT computing architectures and real-time processing
- Striving for leadership in open industrial IoT edge computing platforms
The main objective of the event is to see how IoT/IIoT and Edge Computing convergence fits with the ongoing initiatives by the European Commission and on the market.
Participants will gain insights in AIOTI contribution to IoT/IIoT and Edge Computing in research and deployment, linking it with major EU initiatives and available funding.
