Cryptocurrencies are increasingly popular digital currencies and an alternative for online payments. To use cryptocurrencies, one needs to have a crypto wallet. This wallet can be software that is a cloud-based service or stored on a computer or mobile device. A wallet is also a tool through which encryption keys are stored to confirm your identity.
Edge computing is the practice of capturing, storing, processing and analysing data near the service consumers or data sources, instead of in a centralized data-processing warehouse. Hence, the data is stored at intermediate points at the ‘edge’ of the network, rather than at the central server or data centre.
Edge computing is not part of a cloud system. Instead, edge complements cloud computing but does not replace it.
Voice-as-User Interface is a speech recognition technology that allows people to interact with a computer, smartphone or other device through voice commands. Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, Google’s Assistant and Microsoft’s Cortana are prime examples of VUIs.
