The Fog is the new AI Infrastructure
IV-01
Director of IoT Business Development Microsoft
Advances in AI are already demonstrating the potential to augment what humans are capable of, and they are already fundamentally changing our lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined even five years ago. As AI becomes a critical part of mainstream products, services and other innovations the deployment of these technologies becomes critical. Fog Computing is a deployment model for AI that is already revolutionizing the way that we think about the intelligent edge. In this session we will explore how Fog Computing is delivering on AI’s promise in terms of rapid deployment and scaling as well as enabling new scenarios impossible with the Edge and Cloud paradigms.

IV-09
There are billions of computers all around us, many of which function at a mere fraction of their computational capacity. Fog computing offers an architecture that can leverage those untapped resources to run software services that used to be run only in the cloud. As a result, we can source processing power for today’s traffic-heavy tech like IoT, AI, Machine Learning and more on computers that are better suited than cloud in terms of geography, speed, and scalability, reducing the distance data has to travel and the overall strain on a network, and eliminating single points of failure. However, building a fog computing architecture that involves computing resources owned by different parties would be impossible without a marketplace. This session will talk about a blockchain-based payment mechanism with a fog computing architecture, called the FogCoin Marketplace, which performs two essential functions: a) incentivizing computer owners to make resources available to the network by paying them and b) routing demand for processing power to appropriate computers, based on criteria that includes price in addition to geography, availability and more.
