Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Carlo Daffara, CEO and co-founder of NodeWeaver, discussing the future of edge computing.

The takeaway is that the importance of edge computing lies, not in the technology itself, but in what it delivers, namely killer applications across industries. The edge is based on the realization that given the amount of data we now generate, all of that data cannot always be moved around.
