Edge Scoring

Definition - What does Edge Scoring mean?

Edge scoring refers to a type of processing that internet of things (IoT) devices can do. With edge processing, devices can actually perform the analytics right there, where the data is collected, instead of sending the data back to a central machine handling all the processing. This saves a lot of bandwidth and processing power by distributing computation.

Techopedia explains Edge Scoring

Edge scoring is the process of offloading analytics processing to IoT devices rather than just having them send back data to be processed by systems. This takes advantage of the computing power that a lot of IoT devices have by using a form of edge processing. This makes it more efficient to deploy IoT networks, since there is not as much of a need to dedicate machines solely to the task of handling analytics. Since these sensors can send a lot of data, it lessens the load on a network.
