Reducing network latency, decreasing energy consumption and the ever-growing need for internet bandwidth, improve the availability of applications and increase systems’ privacy and security. These are the key advantages of employing LightEdge, the edge computing solution developed by Konica Minolta to further enhance the Cognitive Hub’s architecture.
Over the last four years, edge computing has become one of the fastest growing software architectures, and a core enabling technology for simplifying and enhancing the security and automation of IT services. For this reason, at Konica Minolta, we deem that the cloud edge will enable the foundation for a host of disruptive applications, particularly in innovative areas such as cloud robotics and confidential distributed deep learning.
Thanks to our collaboration with the Centre for Telecommunications Research of King’s College London, our LightEdge solution enables Cognitive Hub to serve as a smart federated system capable of orchestrating AI services and agents creating a platform to connect people, spaces and devices in the workplace of the future. Join our research network to take part in the challenge to break the boundaries between digital and physical worlds to empower you with AI at your fingertips.
