How edge analytics will drive smarter computing

Many analytics and machine learning use cases connect to data stored in data warehouses or data lakes, run algorithms on complete data sets or a subset of the data, and compute results on cloud architectures. This approach works well when the data doesn’t change frequently. But what if the data does change frequently?

Today, more businesses need to process data and compute analytics in real-time. IoT drives much of this paradigm shift as data streaming from sensors requires immediate processing and analytics to control downstream systems. Real-time analytics is also important in many industries including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and

The ewaste crisis could be avoided if we made batteries cheaper and easier to recycle

As concern mounts over the impacts of climate change, many experts are calling for greater use of electricity as a substitute for fossil fuels. Powered by advancements in battery technology, the number of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles on U.S. roads is increasing. And utilities are generating a growing share of their power from renewable fuels, supported by large-scale battery storage systems.

These trends, coupled with a growing volume of battery-powered phones, watches, laptops, wearable devices and other consumer technologies, leave us wondering: What will happen to all these batteries once they wear out?

Despite overwhelming enthusiasm for cheaper, more
