Arrow Electronics teams with Intel to develop breakthrough edge-computing standard – Ambient Science

Arrow’s Smart City Open Lab to be a global showcase for Ambient

CENTENNIAL, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: ARW) has teamed with Intel for the
Colorado Open Lab to be a global testbed and showcase of a new IEEE
global edge-computing standard called Ambient Science.

Ambient Science is an evolutionary global standard serving many
applications in Smart Cities, Smart Buildings and Industrial IoT. The
Smart Cities market is estimated at $2 trillion USD by 2025 (Frost and
Sullivan) with the Edge Compute market estimated to be worth $6.72
billion USD by 2022 (Markets and Markets).

Arrow’s Colorado Open Lab is a powerful and open Smart City innovation
eco-system, serving Colorado cities and regions with Smart City
technology solutions and digital transformation. Intel and the IEEE will
use the Colorado Open Lab as a test bed and platform for Ambient Science
research and development, and to showcase solutions for Smart Cities.

Ambient Science is the enabling technology for the transformation to
Society 5.0 that creates the new environment of human and AI
collaboration, both in the real and cyber world of self-discovery and
decision-making,” said Jeff Fedders, Society 5.0 chief strategist and
director of Ambient Science Standards for Intel Corporation. “The
standardization of this science is paramount for interoperability and
trustworthiness. In joint efforts with IEEE and Colorado Open Labs led
by Intel Corporation with Arrow Electronics, we are constructing the
beginnings of the promise of Society 5.0.”

Ambient science is the next frontier in the evolution of technology
enabling transparent interaction between humans and computing for the
promise of Society 5.0.,” said Katalin K. Bartfai-Walcott, IEEE Ambient
Science Working Group chairperson. “The infrastructure is self-forming,
self-aware and responsive to user requirements without express requests
and specific interfaces. The goal of the infrastructure is to
orchestrate autonomic resources in a way that obfuscates the complexity
of computing from the user while providing a consistent immersive

Arrow is delighted that Intel chose the Colorado Open Lab as the base
for the development of this breakthrough edge-computing standard,” said
Matthew Bailey, who heads up Smart Cities IoT for Arrow. “This is a
great example of how Arrow and its partners are guiding innovation
forward for our customers with the very best IoT technologies and
