IEKView：Top 10 Trends in the ICT Industry in 2018
As ITRI IEK indicates, the focus in the ICT industry this year is AI on earth, AI on edge and AI everywhere. In other words, AI is both on the cloud and on the edge (i.e. edge computing). This will start to have a significant influence on the technological roadmap, R&D and product design beginning in 2018. The IEK forecasts the global market for edge computing to grow from $8 billion in 2017 to $13.3 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 10.7%.
