The rapid growth of the production of low-cost and low power miniature computing devices and the decreasing cost of megabits per second makes it possible to embed it in any physical device. These embedded computing devices make these devices communicate over the internet to exchange data to and from the device. These devices are called the Internet of Things (IoT). These devices consist of four major components: sensors, actuators, computing devices, and communication media. These major components make these things capable of interacting with the physical world without minimal human interactions. Artificial Intelligence is another proliferating technology used to enhance the computing device to react intelligently by perceiving the environment and self-learning. But the integration of A.I. into these small miniature computing devices is not effective because it is not capable process the high volume of data. Instead, it needs to send the data to the remote computing device for computation and get back the communication media results. The Edge A.I. chip is fulfilling the computing requirement locally at the device. It plays a vital role in the IoT device to compute the data itself locally without sending the data to the cloud or sending the excessive data that it cannot process for external computation at different remote or cloud locations. IoT devices equipped with Edge A.I. chip transforming our daily activities drastically and gradually attracting many sectors around the world, opening new opportunities for growth and innovation. This paper introduces the IoT, A.I., and Edge A.I., its benefits and challenges. This would promote the future of the next generation into the intelligent smart world.
