To this end, agencies are looking to identify solutions that can help solve these challenges. One idea that is catching the attention of federal chief data officers is data gravity, the idea that applications can move data right to their solution and this concept is driving the adoption of edge computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions.
