Here is my comments:
- IoT replaces the Cloud with Fog computing. It is wise to process data just where it is captured like the human nervous system does a lot of processing before sending information to the brain.
- So centralized cloud would still be needed as a background ML engine to process big data, maybe....
- Data should be decentralized too and blockchain technology is the way to do that.
- Buttomeline is the optimal structure should be combination of centralized and decentralized computing/data processing. Again like human synergistic loop concept: smart sensors - spine brain - brain - back to muscles,
