Voice Interfaces and Edge Processing

Jim Steele

Voice interfaces are of increasing prevalence, fueled by the success of IoT devices such as the Amazon Echo. Some of the challenges of implementing such a system will be discussed as well as considerations for the future of user interfaces in IoT.  With the advent of low-power low-cost sensors all around us, the plethora of data demands a shift from cloud-based processing to edge-based processing.  This shift is discussed and an edge-based architecture of distributed systems is laid out.
