He will also kickoff the Expo’s IoT@Edge Workshop on Tuesday, January 29 at 1pm. His workshop session,  “Where Edge Meets Fog,” will review how edge and fog are working together to advance the technology of managing critical data at scale.

“I’m looking forward to joining my colleagues at IoT Evolution Expo and the IoT@Edge Workshop to explore how fog and edge are delivering on AI’s promise in terms of rapid deployment and scaling,” said Vasey.

Chuck Byers, OpenFog CTO and Architecture Chair, will present “OpenFog Reference Architecture and Beyond,” on Tuesday at the IoT@Edge Workshop at 2:30pm.
