Peter Levine gave a seminal presentation titled “The End of Cloud Computing” in December of 2016. He foretold the rise of “edge computing” as Internet of Things – Physical objects with the ability to connect and exchange data with each other over the Internet. A network of objects that are embedded with sensors, processing ability, software, to connect to and exchange data with other such objects or networks. devices and machine learning applications would start to produce more data and require more compute power. A brilliant piece of insight from his presentation was the recognition that the decentralization of computing is a recurring theme as computers become more powerful. We have been here before with both personal computers and mobile computing.
