HKG18-200K1 – Keynote: Mark Hambleton: The Fog
Today’s world of devices connected to clouds looks set to evolve with more intelligence and processing being pushed to the edge or migrating between the cloud and the edge. The very definition of edge is evolving too. In this presentation we will look at some potential futures made possible by the emergence of the fog and its implications for the segments that it embraces.
Mark Hambleton / ARM
Approaching 20 years of experience in embedded systems ranging from real time control of wind tunnels in his early career to a more recently on mobile devices. Mark has been working with the Linux kernel for approaching 15 years, initially creating networking products focussing on traffic classification and shaping for core and edge routers to more recently on mobile devices. Working as a Chief Architect for at Symbian (and Nokia), Mark established himself within the ARM community, he then joined Broadcom in 2012 to refocus on Linux on ARM working on their leading edge mobile SOCs and then on to ARM in 2014.

Allwinner launches their ARM SoC-Only 3-Mic Far-Field Dev Kit for Amazon Voice Service (AVS) with all the acoustic and distance challenged voice processing done fully on the Allwinner R18 Quad-core 64bit ARM Cortex-A53 SoC eliminating the need for a more expensive and more complicated digital signal processor (DSP) to do Alexa Voice Services, reducing complexity and expenses, increasing flexibility for OEMs, ODMs, IDH partners, Allwinner currently supports Amazon AVS with their R18 dev kit running their Allwinner Linux based optimized embedded Tina OS platform, with support for Android Things probably also to come later. Allwinner not only provides the R18 "open source family" SoC, they also provide Wi-Fi, analog-to-digital converters (ADC), PMIC, algorithms (via partner GMEMS) for a Total package for the device developer.

First demo of EdgeX on ARM in cross-host setup featuring Ubuntu Core and Ubuntu systems both running the EdgeX cluster. The Dell 5k Edge Gateway, based on Ubuntu Core Snappy, has been running the core EdgeX services (basically 11 out of 12) using the official Docker snap. The RPi3, based on Ubuntu, has been running EdgeX device virtual service.
