Edge and IoT technologies and the European paradigm shift
The computing continuum, is witnessing a shift from centralized computing facilities to computing at the edge. While today 80% of the data processing is centralised, a paradigm shift is projected to move data processing toward network peripheries thanks to edge and internet-of-things (IoT) technologies.
European companies have strong expertise and market shares in IoT and 5G across many sectors, such as mobility, energy, the home, agriculture, manufacturing, logistics, etc. Capitalising these opportunities, will provide a one-time opportunity to regain a significant role in the computing market by 2025.
Several are the potential innovative use scenarios across EU economy, including high performance, decentralized intelligence, AI-based cognitive cloud frameworks, and precision farming.
