About the Book

Book description

Design, secure, and protect the privacy of edge analytics applications using platforms and tools such as Microsoft's Azure IoT Edge, MicroPython, and Open Source Computer Vision (OpenCV)

Key Features

  • Become well-versed with best practices for implementing automated analytical computations
  • Discover real-world examples to extend cloud intelligence
  • Develop your skills by understanding edge analytics and applying it to research activities

Book Description

Edge analytics has gained attention as the IoT model for connected devices rises in popularity. This guide will give you insights into edge analytics as a data analysis model, and help you understand why it’s gaining momentum.

You'll begin with the key concepts and components used in an edge analytics app. Moving ahead, you'll delve into communication protocols to understand how sensors send their data to computers or microcontrollers. Next, the book will demonstrate how to design modern edge analytics apps that take advantage of the processing power of modern single-board computers and microcontrollers. Later, you'll explore Microsoft Azure IoT Edge, MicroPython, and the OpenCV visual recognition library. As you progress, you'll cover techniques for processing AI functionalities from the server side to the sensory side of IoT. You'll even get hands-on with designing a smart doorbell system using the technologies you’ve learned. To remove vulnerabilities in the overall edge analytics architecture, you'll discover ways to overcome security and privacy challenges. Finally, you'll use tools to audit and perform real-time monitoring of incoming data and generate alerts for the infrastructure.

By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to use edge analytics programming techniques and be able to implement automated analytical computations.

What you will learn

  • Discover the key concepts and architectures used with edge analytics
  • Understand how to use long-distance communication protocols for edge analytics
  • Deploy Microsoft Azure IoT Edge to a Raspberry Pi
