NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Today, NVIDIA is increasingly known as “the AI computing company.”
From monitoring the energy efficiency of our homes to finding more productive ways to feed the global population, harnessing these connected “things” and turning massive amounts of raw data into actionable insights will have a transformative impact on society. However, both technical and business challenges are slowing IoT adoption. Decision makers within companies are trying to gain a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, Interoperability, management, and the need to tailor to specific verticals. Intel is addressing these challenges by offering open and scalable products, fostering a thriving ecosystem, and showing what is possible with pilots and use cases that demonstrate the potential value and ease of deployment. Intel offers a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end hardware and software with built-in security. To make IoT simpler to deploy and scale across applications quickly, Intel offer the Intel IoT Platform, a design blueprint that details how to securely connect and manage a fleet of “things” from small sensors to huge server farms that make up the cloud, while using various analytics tools and technologies along the way.
Advantech has always been an innovator in the development and manufacture of high-quality, high-performance computing platforms. They cooperate closely with our partners to help provide complete solutions for a wide array of applications across a diverse range of industries. To realize our corporate vision of Enabling an Intelligent Planet, Advantech will continue collaborating and Partnering for Smart City & IoT Solutions.
Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other. Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production. Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
There is the potential for 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Google Cloud Platform gives you the tools to scale connections, gather and make sense of data, and provide the reliable customer experiences that hardware devices require. With the potential for so many devices, companies need a network infrastructure that can sustain potentially millions of concurrent connections across a global user base. Google's Backbone Network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cables, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. Many small devices are still capable of producing very large volumes of data. It is only through the insight of sufficiently powerful data analysis tools that these trickles of device data are turned into floods of valuable information. Google Cloud Platform is building a state-of-the-art suite of big data tools.
