Designing the Edge event recap

We announced an expansion of our Edge Computing Zone program, which we launched with Designing the Edge at the Ericsson Experience Center in Santa Clara, Calif. Our discussions during this two-day forum further underscored the disruptive potential of edge computing, as well as the need to work collaboratively to design and re-architect applications for this new computing paradigm. We are excited to engage new collaborators as we work toward the realization of our three core missions: cutting the cord on extended reality (XR) and gaming, enabling real-time sensor analytics for public safety, and orchestrating live HD-3D mapping frameworks for vehicle automation.
