About the Summit

Edge World Summit 2024

The World’s #1
Applied Intelligence Application Gathering

Artificial Intelligence has taken another dimension with Generative AI, opening up opportunities for humans, machines, and spaces to work together in real-time, massively improving output per worker, and enabling resiliency and adaptability. This new level of Intelligence powers applications that solve specific problems. We call those applications Applied Intelligence

Leveraging such technology and applications is timely as businesses face tremendous challenges across industries requiring more productive workers, sustainable and resilient to environmental and supply chain crises.

To make this new level of Artificial Intelligence operable, companies need a new infrastructure to gather data, generate insights, and act on those insights cost-effectively, changing the nature of computing. In this new world, data is generated at the Edge and beyond, and systems distribute workloads across heterogeneous networks. 

Early versions of those Applied Intelligence Applications exist today in robotics, with more auto-adapting machines such as autonomous cars and drones released daily. Edge AI digitizes spaces such as stores, factories, hospitals, buildings, and warehouses, making them intelligent.  The same applies to ecosystems such as supply chains, logistics, cities, and work sites—Applied Intelligence powers today’s strategic initiatives, such as same-day delivery at Amazon. In the future, enhanced versions will power automated, augmented, or even autonomous business operations.

This summit gathers the community building Applied Intelligence Applications and provides an interactive experience debating:

The Actual Shapes of Applied Intelligence


Autonomous Objects

An autonomous object can operate, act, or make decisions independently without direct human intervention. They can be found in various fields, such as robotics, self-driving vehicles, and drones. These objects have various sensors, artificial intelligence, and computational capabilities.

Edge AI: Intelligent Spaces

Intelligent spaces are transforming our homes, workplaces, and cities by integrating smart devices, IoT technologies, and artificial intelligence. Intelligent spaces adapt to user behavior and preferences, while smart workplaces optimize productivity and comfort with automated systems. Edge AI processes distributed data across the computing continuum from devices to the cloud cost-effectively. As technology advances, intelligent spaces will continue to shape how we interact with our environment, but carefully considering privacy and ethical implications remains crucial.

IT and OT systems

OT systems are the backbone of many industrial processes and are responsible for managing and controlling physical devices, machinery, and industrial operations. OT systems undergo significant transformation through the convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology. This convergence enables seamless data exchange between OT systems, Autonomous objects, Intelligent Spaces, Augmented Humans and higher-level IT systems, leading to improved efficiency, real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, and enhanced decision-making.

Augmented Humans

“Augmented Humans” are individuals who enhance their natural capabilities using technological advancements or external means, like wearable devices, implants, or other enhancements. These improvements can include enhanced senses, cognition, physical strength, or specialized skills, pushing the boundaries of human potential.



Accompanying these advancements is the need for

new skill sets, processes, and technologies.


In the same way, SaaS needed Cloud to scale, Applied Intelligence Applications require

a new infrastructure to deal with:

Low latency  •  ROI  •  Application autonomy •  Sustainability •  Data security •  Bandwidth thinning
