Pushing Intelligence out to the Edge

Will see more of this.  Intelligence placed in the device, on the edge.   A reminder of the announced TPU's of Google.  Is this enough,  or does it depend too much upon chip architecture?  Neural or otherwise?  Or will we need breakthroughs like Quantum?

Meaning? In CWorld:

" .... Tiny brains everywhere
Steve Jurvetson, of VC firm Draper, Fisher, Jurvetson, won the most votes Wednesday for his predicition: the embedding of inference engines connected by neural nets that, as he put it, will put "tiny brains in everything."

Four years ago at the event, Jurvetson pegged deep learning as a big trend. "Now we're entering a new phase, pushing intelligence out to the edge, to Fitbits and smartphones, putting a 'brain' in each sensor."

In other words, it's not just the Internet of Things, but the Internet of Smart Things. "Imagine your fitness device becoming a fitness coach or your refrigerator as a health monitor," he said, adding that these smart sensors will be essential to the success of self-driving cars.  .... "
