    Topic: Edge Data Centers and Next Generation Cooling Strategies


    This presentation discusses the exponential change in the ways that society will consume data with 5G networks, autonomous cars, artificial intelligence, virtual currencies, and the Internet of Things.  With these conveniences will come necessary changes to the existing data center cooling model; which will require the use of liquid to chip cooling.
