If only it had a Brain
Artificial Intelligence at the edge
The Internet of Things (IoT) will be the largest revolution in the data economy. By 2020, IoT revenue in B2B segments could top USD 300 billion1 as businesses discover new ways to benefit from the data generated by connected things. At Intel, we understand the exponential power of data, and we’re making it practical and economical to put it to work.
Our comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software helps transform data from a burden to be managed into a competitive advantage. From large, complex applications in the cloud to intelligence at the edge, we power solutions that can move, store, and process data faster, turning it into actionable insights that drive business forward. By enabling technology providers to develop solutions that harness the massive flood of data through the combination of IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), and 5G, we’ll accelerate business transformation to a degree never before seen.
While about half of the world’s data was created in the last two years, only 2 percent has been analysed. Intel provides the right analytics and AI exactly where you need it, so your solutions can deliver actionable insights at the edge and everywhere else—all on a foundation of security. With edge computing and inference, you can build solutions that deliver faster response times, free up bandwidth, and help keep sensitive or proprietary data private. And wherever devices are, Intel helps keep everything connected to the cloud with efficiency and speed. Our scalable architecture also means developers can port code across the computing continuum using the same tools, maximizing software reuse.
With purpose-built IoT technologies, interoperable building blocks, and ecosystem support, Intel speeds development and deployment—so technology providers can get solutions to market faster while incorporating their own unique value-add. We work as a partner in the IoT ecosystem to deliver integrated solutions that help reduce the time, cost, and risk of deployments, while solving key market challenges.
Less complexity, more value
To accommodate more data and new capabilities at the edge, more powerful computing is needed. Solutions based on Intel® platforms deliver high performance and the specialized technologies to consolidate data and applications onto a common platform while adding AI and other functionalities. By simplifying the IT environment, you can lower BOM and integration costs while helping businesses reduce their costs and simplify management.
A bold new era for IoT
Intel is uniquely positioned to fuel the extraction of data value, unlocking insights and delivering optimised compute at the location of highest return. Our technologies are enabling data-centric solutions for cars, factories, retail stores, healthcare clinics and systems, and even cities themselves. These reimagined systems will allow technology providers to develop solutions that completely transform how businesses operate. From automating processes on a factory line to responding to customer needs in real time, businesses will be able to achieve greater efficiency, make better decisions, and create more value for customers and employees.
Industrial systems are becoming more complex, especially as automation expands in smart factories. But with a greater number and variety of systems to buy and maintain, companies are struggling with increasing costs and lost productivity. Each system has unique support requirements for configuration, backup, spares, and software patching—and takes up valuable space on the factory floor.
Intel provides the hardware building blocks and specialized technologies for technology providers to consolidate discrete functions—including process control, visualisation, and data acquisition—at the edge, such as with a programmable logic controller (PLC) or factory workstation. These optimised solutions lower BOM and integration costs, as well as reduce operational expenses for power, cooling, and management. They also take up less space and reduce system-to-system communications.
Intel compute elements can scale up to meet performance-hungry tasks like machine vision, which when performed at the edge can help reduce latency and improve real-time responses. Specialized technologies offer additional value, such as Intel® vitualisation Technology to improve functional safety and Intel® Real Time Compute capabilities to synchronize networks of devices. Intel also provides an application-ready platform that speeds the development of virtualized, real-time systems.
To consolidate data and applications and streamline management even further, Intel is advancing strategies like software-defined infrastructure, containers, orchestration, and hyperconverged infrastructure. All this helps technology providers converge information and operations technology (IT/OT) and increase the value of their solutions.
As transportation providers connect more vehicles, vessels, and infrastructure to the cloud, they’re seeing a greater need to place high performance compute at or near the edge to perform predictive analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) using data from vehicle sensors, cameras, and other sources. This can help reduce latency, improve real-time responses, and relieve demand on network bandwidth for performance-hungry tasks, like vision.
Solutions based on Intel® platforms deliver high performance at the edge, ideal for onboard or on-premise servers and gateways. They also offer specialized technologies to help OEMs, ODMs, and system integrators consolidate multiple applications. This helps reduce BOM and integration costs, as well as software
complexity, while leaving enough performance headroom to add new functionalities as needed. You can also deliver greater value by reducing infrastructure costs and simplifying integration and management.
Intel makes it possible to successfully consolidate many different applications with specialized technologies like Intel® vitualisation Technology and Intel® Real Time Compute capabilities. By allowing multiple systems to share compute, graphics, audio, imaging, and other resources, you’ll increase utilization, efficiency, and value. To consolidate data and applications and streamline management even further, Intel is advancing strategies like software-defined infrastructure, containers, orchestration, and hyperconverged infrastructure. These strategies help transportation providers lower their capital and operating expenses.
