Edge Intelligence lies at the confluence of multiple technologies, particularly Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Internet of Things, and Cloud

Picture a scenario. On your way home, you see a fleet of delivery trucks driving towardstoward a popular supermarket in your neighborhood. You notice that except for the first vehicle the others are driverless. Yet, each is closely followed by the next and every move is seamlessly imitated across the entire fleet. The next day, you visit the supermarket to buy groceries. You swipe in with your smartphone and proceed to the aisles. You pick up everything you need and head straight for the exit – there is no checkout counter. On leaving the building, a notification on your phone informs you that the payment for your groceries has been debited from your bank account.

This episode could be an everyday experience in a few years. Thanks to recent technological developments, business operations, and customer experiences are more frictionless than ever. Today, driverless cars are in the works, and online purchases can be made with a voice command. The intelligent edge is set to drive such advances up a notch.
