Today, machines are trained at the core and the results sent to the edge for prediction and action. However, with so much data stranded, due to privacy, regulations, or sheer volume and velocity, getting consistently accurate predictions is elusive. But what if we could remove these barriers with AI, IoT and blockchain to train these machines anywhere, where the data sources are, including at the edge. Hear how the next wave of Machine Intelligence is uncovering value in data like never before to solve some of the world’s most significant challenges. This will be explained in a way for all to understand.

By harnessing HPE’s radical Memory-Driven Computing, experiments could complete in minutes rather than months, accelerating us toward a cure.
