Editor's Comment
Why we should be happy to embrace edge computing so soon after we got used to the cloud, IoT, Industry 4.0 etc…?
The benefits of taking the large amount of repetitive data created by machines and automated systems and processing it locally are huge.

Data is turned into useful information closer to its point of origin and more importantly, in real time.
