Samsung re-envisioning the future of edge computing for ‘intelligent human edge’ 

KC Choi IBM Think 2021
As the pandemic has shown, edge computing is setting the trend for what’s going to be the preferred technological architecture for the next few decades. On the forefront of re-envisioning what edge computing can do for the future is Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a powerhouse consumer electronics company. “Over a year with the COVID pandemic, that’s actually accelerated a lot of the thinking around the edge,” said K.C. Choi (pictured), corporate executive vice president and head of group with the global mobile B2B team at Samsung. “We’ve seen the edge … start be more extreme, in the sense that it’s pushing further and further out beyond what we originally envisioned the edge to be. We’re really re-envisioning what the edge is. ” Choi spoke with John Furrier, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, during...

Intelligent edge computing and management

We have a vision of a Network Compute Fabric where the lines between networking and computing disappear. On the journey there, edge cloud computing provides a critical stepping-stone where computing is pushed very close to where it is needed. This distribution of computing capabilities in the network creates new challenges for its management and operation. We argue that a data-centric approach that extensively uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies to realize specific management functions is a good candidate to tackle these challenges. As can be seen in Figure 1, edge computing services can be provided through compute/storage resources at different locations in a network, such as on-premises at a customer/enterprise site (industrial control, for example) or at access and local/regional sites (telco operators, for...
