The Cloudcast #344 - Bringing AI to Edge Computing
April 25, 2018 Aaron Delp & Brian Gracely
Aaron and Brian talk with Simon Crosby (@simoncrosby, CTO) and Simon Aspinall (@saspinall, CMO) at new AI startup SWIM.AI about the changing landscape of the cloud and edge, the vertical industry opportunities with edge computing, how AI is being applied to real-time events, and how SWIM is enabling new thinking for those use-cases.

Show Notes
  • Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. Let’s put some voices with names, since we have two Simons today.
  • Topic 1a - You’re both coming off of successful companies that you built or grew (Simon Crosby - Bromium, Zen Source), (Simon Aspinall, Virtustream). What motivated you to get involved in both the AI and Edge Computing space?
  • Topic 2 - Let’s start with the basics. There’s lots of data happening at the edge. This means there is lots of potential value at the edge. But the computing and network at the edge is different than the centralized cloud. Walk us through how to extract that potential value?
  • Topic 3 - SWIM’s technology is called EDX. How does EDX get deployed, and what needs to live around it to make it valuable to companies. Are there edge and cloud components?
  • Topic 4 - We were learning about EDX and came across the concept called “digital twins”. What does this mean and what does it do?
  • Topic 5 - What are some of the initial use-cases that you’re finding interesting in EDX?
Feedback?
