PINNs will become the critical infrastructure required to advance intelligent and autonomous solutions for smart cities and city resilience.
PINN clusters will be deployed within cities, on highways, across military installations and in rural communities to accelerate the nation's digital infrastructure buildout. The goal is to have tens of thousands of PINNs deployed by mid-2022.
The PINN Pilot Launch will be in five cities, starting in Austin, Texas, a leader in the US for utilizing renewable energy. Each PINN will support CPU, FPGA, GPU, MLU and an array of sensors and cameras to support a multitude of use cases in a multi-tenant architecture. e. Each PINN will have the ability to capture, process and analyze over a petabyte of data/month, providing ample compute for new advanced algorithms and complex AI experimentation.
PINNs are designed to deliver a multitude of advanced edge sensors and computing capabilities. Accelerating the Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) market is among the first major initiatives. More than 40,000 people die in the US alone in traffic related fatalities annually, with countless more severely injured. The Autonomy Institute is aligned with the aspirations of the Vision Zero Network, committed to eliminating all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safety, healthy and equitable mobility for all.
Today, the latency from street level to the public cloud is untenable for real world applications. Future Intelligent Traffic Systems will require unprecedented low-latency, high performance computers and network capacity interconnected close to traffic control, signaling, sensors, cameras and cars.
EDJX has solved the challenges and complexities of trying to develop low latency, high performance, edge apps at planet scale by delivering multi-tenant cloud services at the far edge of any network, where they are needed and precisely when they are needed by the developer ecosystem. The PINN infrastructure, enabled by the EDJX platform, will reduce latency for developer ecosystems by an order of magnitude. This new capability will power the next wave of applications such as predictive analytics, autonomous machines, AR, VR, AI and ML, all of which will feature prominently on the path to Vision Zero.
The PINN initiative expects to be the most extensive digital infrastructure buildout in our nation's history. Digital Infrastructure is the foundation of cities and will drive the world economy for the next 50+ years. It will create millions of new jobs, trillions in economic growth and massive productivity. In the same way that mass transportation and the national highway system were key buildouts for economic growth for the Baby Boomer generation, digital infrastructure and the PINN will be essential for this generation—the entire future of the US economy is digital.
EDJX is driving IoT 2.0TM
by creating a platform for multi-tenancy, efficient application and content distribution and ultimately building a true "cloud at the edge". The PINN project is the most recent validation of our approach, there are many more to come.
