Session + Live Q&A

Building Modern Transportation System with KubeEdge, How We Made It

Transportation is one of the most important industries of edge computing, building a highly distributed, edge-cloud collaborative platform to leverage new applications and services for modern transportation has been a hot topic these years.

To deal with massive edge apps & nodes deployment, enabling edge autonomy, and to simplify heterogeneous devices management, KubeEdge was introduced as a key part to the whole system.

In this talk Kevin and Huan will introduce:

  1. Benefits and challenges of adopting cloud-native technologies in the transportation industry.
  2. Edge - cloud collaborative architecture with KubeEdge inside: trade-off between scalability, extensibility, and complexity.
  3. Real-world use cases:
    • Managing 100,000 edge nodes on China's Highway with KubeEdge: most challenging barriers and how they were resolved.
    • How KubeEdge simplified Vehicle-Cloud collaboration, helping software-defined cars to achieve rapid software upgradation & iteration.

Session + Live Q&A GraphQL

GraphQL Caching on the Edge

Monday Nov 8 / 12:10PM EST

In January 2018, I was the CTO of a fast-growing startup with a very ready-heavy use case. Our infrastructure couldn't keep up with our load, so our servers were crashing almost daily. At the time, no traditional CDN could cache GraphQL APIs, meaning we had no choice but to...

Machine Learning at the Edge

Monday Nov 8 / 01:10PM EST

Traditional machine learning pipelines and methods break down in supporting machine learning at the edge; however, the data we get via embedded systems and edge devices is valuable to solve many problems. Rather than taking the traditional approach, we can utilize new distributed data science and...
