How Edge Computing Will Deliver on the Promise of 5G
"That’s because it’s not meant for us. Like most technological advancements, industry will come first. The promise of 5G is in swarms of drones and fleets of autonomous vehicles. It’s in lightweight industrial wearables that process crucial information rapidly. It’s in robots. And, yes, it’s in the augmented reality game we’ve all been waiting for, “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.”

This promise of 5G will be most likely delivered on the edge, taking it from conference marketing to real-world feasibility. In fact, 4G can already deliver a 5G-like experience with edge computing."

Edge computing could push the cloud to the fringe - by @ron_miller
"Then there’s latency. Talla echoes Levine’s thinking here, saying machines like self-driving cars and industrial robots need decisions in fractions of seconds, and there just isn’t time to send the data to the cloud and back.

He adds that sometimes there are privacy issues where data could be considered too sensitive to send to the cloud and might remain on the device. Finally, companies may want to keep data at the edge because of a lack of bandwidth. If you are dealing with a location where you can’t stream data, that would mean having to process it at the edge. There wouldn’t be a choice."

Sticky Robo-Bees Could Help Artificially Pollinate Plants As Bees Die Off
"Created by researchers over from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan, this pollinating robot uses a readily available $100 plastic drone with four propellers. On the underside of the device is a small patch of horsehair, which allows this rob0-bee to gingerly picking up pollen from a plant, using a sticky ionic liquid gel that been spread on the hair. The idea is to mimic how pollen gets stuck on the bodies of insects when they visit flowering plants, which is then transported to cross-pollinate the next plant."

Drones to Deliver Life-Saving Medical Supplies to Rwanda
"Perhaps not so surprisingly, this is where drones can save the day — or at least, that’s what American company Zipline International is counting on. The Silicon Valley startup is now piloting a drone delivery service in the African nation of Rwanda, which will see the company’s fleet of custom-built drones, nicknamed “Zips,” delivering things like medicine and even blood."

Catalina Sea Ranch Dives Into Aquaculture – and IoT
nifty use case.... "The offshore shellfish ranch, the first to get federal authority to operate in United States’ waters, intends to increase commercial shellfish aquaculture, while simultaneously increasing the health of the ecosystem. To accomplish – and prove – this, the ranch uses a growing number of off-the-shelf and custom Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, CEO Phil Cruver told EnterpriseTech. The underwater ranch is fast becoming both an experiment in cultivating shellfish and IoT, as Sea Ranch invites in more partners from across the technology spectrum."
