The future of edge and cloud computing addressing  security challenges, infrastructure needs and more

As enterprises look to digitally transform how they operate, understanding infrastructure needs is crucial.

The rise of edge computing has given enterprises a new way to collect, analyze and store data, while cloud computing provides enterprises with a way of storing mass amounts of vital data.

Enterprise IT spending on public cloud computing will overtake spending on traditional IT in 2025, according to Gartner. And with edge designed to complement the cloud, it's more important than ever to understand your infrastructure needs.

The AI Summit Austin, taking place Nov. 2-3, has several edge and cloud-related learning opportunities.

The event will cover several AI infrastructure topics, including security challenges, optimizing workloads and infrastructure needs for the metaverse.

Here are some of the panels that’ll dive deeper into edge and cloud technologies:
