How Much Compute Is in the World and What Can/Can't It Do?
This IDC study analyzes the shift in the computing paradigm as artificial intelligence moves from the datacenter to the edge and endpoint markets. This transformation will expand the choices of computing architectures for each system market as features and optimizations are mapped closer to workloads. Computing architectures will focus on balancing performance, power efficiency, and cost.
"AI technology will continue to play a critical role in redefining how computing must be implemented to meet the growing diversity of devices and applications, " said Mario Morales, program VP for IDC. "Vendors are at the start of their business transformation, and what they need from their partners is no longer just products and technology. To address the IoT and endpoint opportunity, performance must always find a balance with power. Vendors and users will require road maps and not just chips. This is a fundamental change for technology suppliers in the computing market, and only those that adapt will remain relevant."
