In-Memory Computing Driving Edge Computing and Blockchain Technologies

In-Memory Computing Driving Edge Computing and Blockchain Technologies

Edge computing and blockchain technologies are two information technology trends sweeping into use in today's IT and IOT computing environment. Their need is driven by the need for speed, reliability and security at the edge in applications in fintech, retail, supply chain, factory automation, smart cities, driverless cars etc.

In this talk we will examine these needs and how in-memory computing is vital in building blockchain data architectures that can support edge computing applications in a cloud free or intermittent cloud environment while maintaining trust and coordination. Specifically we will look at a smart city use case we are building for a new generation of smart curb sensor clusters designed to revolutionize transportation and parking models - reducing traffic congestion, traffic accidents and allowing cities to support connected and autonomous vehicles and shuttles.
