How Peer-to-Peer Edge Computing Could Impact Traditional Infrastructures – Acceleration Economy

In Episode 7 of the Cutting Edge podcast, Leonard Lee explains the meaning of peer-to-peer edge computing, its potential applications and the inevitability of widespread adoptions as the technology grows more economically viable.

Highlights

00:23 – Leonard Lee introduces today’s topic of discussion: Peer-to-peer edge computing.

What Is Peer-to-Peer Edge Computing?

00:44 – With all the talk of “cloud,” edge computing is usually assumed to involve offloading or downloading from a cloud or Edge server to an endpoint client.

01:12 – Lee describes Peer-to-peer edge computing as “an archetype of distributed computing architecture that shares functions or workloads across peer devices.”

01:57 – Peer-to-peer edge computing allows the sharing of resources to perform more collaborative functions without tapping into edge architecture.

What Are Some Good Examples of Peer-to-Peer Edge Computing?

02:53 – Lee explains the AI concept “Swarm Intelligence.” One application of peer-to-peer computing in transportation can be seen in smart vehicle “platooning,” wherein a group of vehicles coordinate their positions relative to one another on a road to enhance fuel efficiency and safety.

03:30 – Lee details “CV to X,” or “cellular vehicle to everything” communications.

04:12 – Further applications of peer-to-peer edge computing include smart intersections, which share real-time contextual information to improve traffic efficiency and pedestrian safety.

Key Takeaways for the C-Suite

04:50 – As more intelligent end-point devices populate the edge, applications relying on time-sensitive synchronized actions through coordinated devices become more effective and viable.

05:20 – Peer-to-peer edge computing technology is already here and will inevitably impact city infrastructures and warehouse functions; time and economics will determine when this form of edge computing will experience widespread adoption.
