KnowlEdge participated in NGIoT Community Events: Evolving manufacturing in Europe – the role of Edge Computing

On 16 February, the NGIoT initiative, coordinated by EU-IoT, organized a community event to explore the role of Edge Computing in evolving the manufacturing sector in Europe. The event focused on the challenges and opportunities in moving from a Cloud-centric manufacturing approach to an Edge-Cloud based one.

The event presented recent manufacturing use-cases from two flagship projects: iNGENIOUS, focusing on IoT and Edge computing, and the KnowlEdge project, focusing on platform design and implementation based on AI for supporting the manufacturing sector.

The NGIoT Community Event was a significant step in exploring the potential of Edge Computing in the manufacturing sector in Europe. It highlighted the growing trend in Edge-based services tailored for manufacturing and the need for a technology-driven approach to meet the sector’s needs.
