SWIM.AI Introduces SWIM EDX, Software Delivering Real-Time Intelligence and Digital Twins at the Edge

SWIM.AI, the edge intelligence software company, exited stealth and announced the general availability of its edge software solution, SWIM EDX™, delivering edge intelligence and real-time business and operational insights. Current business intelligence solutions require large volumes of time-series data to be reduced, streamed to the cloud, stored, cleaned, analyzed and then modelled – at great expense and often with significant delays. By applying analytics, self-training digital twins and edge computing, SWIM EDX allows manufacturers, infrastructure providers, enterprises, cities and IoT vendors to analyze and take immediate action on fast edge data.

When BlockChain Meets IoT – All the Lowdown You Need

In this contributed article, blogger and blockchain technology expert Harsh Agrawal discusses several ways blockchain has already begun disrupting industries that are using IoT. About 20% of all IoT enabled devices shall have basic level Blockchain services enabled in them in 2019. That said, there would be more devices that will be will be able to send data to private ledgers.

Kinetica Predicts AI and IoT Use Cases Will Drive Demand for Next-Gen Databases in 2018

Kinetica’s CTO and Co-founder Nima Negahban offers some of his top technology predictions for 2018. Today’s analytical workloads require faster query performance, advanced analysis methods, and more frequent data updates. For real-time analysis of massive data sets, particularly for use cases where time and location matter, enterprises are turning to new next-generation databases to explore data faster and uncover new insights.

Are We Creating a Secure Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT)?

The Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT) has a great deal of potential: it can enable retailers to increase cost efficiencies, improve the overall customer experience, increase brand loyalty and revenues. However, there remain some fundamental EIoT issues, including privacy and security that must be resolved before EIoT can become mainstream. The infographic below from our friends over at Exponential Solutions (The CUBE) offers a detailed look into these issues.

The Future of Smart Cities

In this contributed article, freelance human Avery Phillips discusses the evolution of smart cities from the perspective of how urbanscapes will be run more efficiently through the collection of big data and the use of connected IoT devices. Hospitals will be better able to care for their patients and transportation will run more smoothly than ever. Even though we don’t know what the future holds, we can still look forward to a smarter tomorrow.

Alchemy IoT, a provider of AI-powered applications for industrial IoT, introduced “IoT Asset Intelligence,” a new industry approach that addresses the complexity and market fragmentation associated with Big Data, IoT and artificial intelligence. It outlines today’s disruptive mega-trends, and Alchemy’s industry insights and vision, before outlining practical steps organizations can use to align company goals, resources and teams toward value streams centered on industrial equipment, fleets and operational performance.

StreamSets Delivers Ultralight Open Source Ingestion for Edge Devices

StreamSets Inc., provider of the enterprise data operations platform, debuted StreamSets Data Collector Edge (SDC Edge), enabling the industry’s first end-to-end data ingestion solution for resource- and connectivity-constrained systems such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the endpoint systems and network infrastructure used in cybersecurity applications.

Building Fast Data Compression Code for Cloud and Edge Applications

Finding efficient ways to compress and decompress data is more important than ever. Compressed data takes up less space and requires less time and network bandwidth to transfer. In this article, we’ll discuss the data compression functions and the latest improvements in the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) library.

FreeWave Unveils ZumIQ App Server Software to Power IoT Programmability at the Edge

FreeWave Technologies, Inc., a leader in industrial, secure Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) wireless networking solutions, announced the availability of its ZumIQ App Server Software.

Why We Should Temper Our Optimism About IoT

In this contributed article, Sheza Gary, a technical director at Algoworks, discusses a few pros and some serious cons with IoT and how it’s important to note that IoT is still not an extraordinarily mature technology. The silver lining is that manufacturers are all very aware of all these problems and have been working on fixing them to the best of their abilities. At some point, we can expect tightly-secured, future-proof, and privacy-oriented hardware that responds not only to the demands of a convenience-driven economy but also to its need for hardened technologies.
