* Fog computing
An architectural concept for the realization of edge intelligence and the suppression of communications with the cloud by establishing a "fog" distributed computing layer between the cloud and devices in the field. Fog computing eliminates communications delays and fluctuations by locating the processing of certain data near the field devices that generate the data and sending only essential information to the cloud. Also, fog computing can enable the execution of logic functions for machine learning, artificial intelligence, and like at the edge of a computer network. As such, there are high expectations that this technology will lead to a number of new IoT applications.
