As the public, private and consumer sectors rush to the cloud, the main hurdles are not feasibility or sensor/network price.
They are -Complexity of deployment due to inadequate IOT standards, inability to guarantee performance, and a growing fear of the liabilities generated by holding and processing data with privacy aspects.
NEC Labs, including the one in Israel, are focused on combining AI and IOT in a way that can provide mathematically-proven privacy, while solving the performance bottleneck using the latest edge AI hardware and some special methods of adapting deep learning to run on this hardware. In the talk I will share lessons learned from actual applications of video analytics and cyber-physical security.
Cloud and Edge: price, performance and privacy considerations in IOT
