Global AI in Edge Devices Market to Hit $4.849 Billion by 2024
Research from Report Ocean finds that the global market for AI for edge devices will grow from $1.417 billion in 2019 to $4.849 billion by 2024 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.9 percent in the forecast period. An excerpt from the report description reads:
Artificial intelligence (AI) processing today is mostly done in a cloud-based data center. The majority of AI processing is dominated by training of deep learning models, which requires heavy compute capacity. Artificial intelligence for edge devices means that AI software algorithms are processed locally on a hardware device. The algorithms are using data (sensor data or signals) that are created on the device. A device using Edge AI software does not need to be connected in order to work properly, it can process data and take decisions independently without a connection.
