In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), billions of sensors collect data from their environment and process it to enable intelligent decisions at the right time. However, transferring massive amounts of disparate data in complex environments is a challenging issue. The convergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things has breathed new life into IoT operations and human-machine interaction. Resource-constrained IoT devices typically need more data storage and processing capacity to build modern AI models. The intuitive solution integrates cloud computing technology with AIoT and leverages cloud-side servers’ powerful and flexible processing and storage capacity. This paper briefly introduces IoT and AIoT architectures in the context of cloud computing, fog computing and more. Finally, an overview of the NEMO  concept is presented. The NEMO project aims to establish itself as the “game changer” of AIoT-Edge-Cloud Continuum by bringing intelligence closer to data, making AI-as-a-Service an integral part of self-organizing networks orchestrating micro-service execution.
