What Constitutes Distributed Intelligence?


Distributed intelligence is an architecture that breaks computation workloads hosted in a centralized system into a combination of one central node and multiple end nodes. The end nodes generally involve multiple machines in many locations and different form factors and processing capabilities, ranging from smart sensors and intelligence devices to gateways and on-premises servers. The idea of distributed intelligence has always attracted many technology solution suppliers, as it provides the following benefits:

  • Quick Response Time: Addressing a task through a combination of one central node and multiple end nodes is very critical in the age of cloud computing. The central node that resides in the cloud is responsible for task allocation, resource scheduling, and optimization. Smart end nodes, on the other hand, can take immediate action without having to exchange information back and forth with the central node, which ensures low latency.
  • Collaborative and Coordinative System: The end nodes can be designed to be aware of each other, so they can work together toward a…
