Observe how an octopus, with a "brain" in each of its eight arms, is an example of edge analytics at work in nature.
- [Instructor] The octopus is a very interesting creature…and not just for its somewhat unique appearance…and the fact that it has eight arms.…And just in case you're thinking that I should have said…an octopus has eight tentacles, rather than arms,…there's actually a subtle scientific distinction…between an arm and a tentacle,…something I didn't know until I was working on this course,…but that's besides the point.…The reason an octopus is interesting…from our perspective here is that the octopus represents…edge analytics at work in nature.…
It turns out that each of those octopus arms…has its own brain that largely controls…what the arm does, largely guided by the suckers…on that arm which act as sensors.…And in fact, it's probably more appropriate…to refer to each of those arm-resident brains…as a collection of neurons than an actual brain,…though the result's the same,…with the arm's actions being guided by its own neurons…in concert with what that arm's sensors are telling it.…Then, in addition to each of those arm-resident brains,…
