This is a great development. Should be interesting to see the path that Baidu takes. I remember talking to one of their architects at SC2013 and he said something along the lines of, "two years ago, if you asked use we were not optimizing for latency in a multi processor compute environemnt. Now that is a major focus".
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
