Edge Computing: the basis of “cognitive cities”

The next generation of smart cities, also known as “cognitive cities,” will create a place that thinks for itself. Ensure deliveries arrive on time, control traffic to make way for emergency vehicles to reach their destinations, and even reunite people with their lost pets.

Cognitive cities differ from the first smart cities built by their ability to sense and respond, while the latter can sense but not act; This is where sensors and edge computing come into play, which should be distributed on the streets. In the future, smart cities are expected to be “new areas,” with edge computing built into everything from streetlights to garbage bins, and built from the ground up to incorporate intelligence. For residents of these new cities, edge computing plays an essential role in delivering real, measurable improvements to their lives, such as finding parking spaces instantly and reducing energy bills by leveraging predictive intelligence.
