Molly is hoping to progress her early career research further in the Autumn, by commencing a PhD course that will allow her to build on both her spatial and museological knowledge. Edge computing, where computing is done much closer to – or at – the source of data, is increasingly being seen as the answer, and is rapidly becoming an essential part of organisations’ strategies.
