What is Edge AI?

Edge AI means processing data collected/created on a device at the edge of a network using artificial intelligence algorithms. ‘Edge’ means the device is at the edge of a network and ‘AI’ means the data is processed using artificial intelligence. Edge AI is defined by device location and how data is processed there.

Data Types and Edge AI Processing

Edge AI devices contain or are directly connected to sensors of one sort or another that collect and process structured or unstructured data.

Structured data

Examples of structured data types in edge computing and IoT.

GPS coordinates, motion detection, and temperature data is easily organized and acted upon by computers.

Unstructured data

Examples of unstructured data types in edge computing and IoT.

Video, images, and audio data is not easily classified or understood by computers.

Edge AI and Big Data Work Together

With the entire system protected by robust network security from Gorilla, the edge AI device processes and transforms the unstructured video and image data into structured data via deep learning (a form of AI). Once processed, the encrypted data is sent with the time of collection as an event for analysis in public, private, or hybrid servers. Events are stored, correlated, and categorized for use in biometric authentication, account management, device management, business intelligence, and other applications.
