Executive Briefing: 5G—A playground for AI

Video description

The advent of 5G promises to change our lives in a radically big way. This revolution will transform cars to be self-driving, communication networks to be software-defined and autonomous, virtual reality and augmented reality to be mobile and completely untethered, and internet of things (IoT) sensors to be intelligent and connected. Behind this 5G revolution, AI plays a significant role in the planning, forecasting, building, development, and deployment of 5G. It also enables a new set of experiences, including intelligent stores and factories, autonomous flying drones, robots, and holographic meetings.

Mazin Gilbert (AT&T Research) provides a technical- and market-landscape overview of how AI is creating the 5G world. He highlights recent developments in AI closer to the network edge helping to accelerate widespread adoption of 5G-based applications for both consumers and enterprises. You’ll learn about the roles of open source and open platforms as key ingredients of this 5G AI transformation.
