The convergence of 5G, AI and IoT

Manuel Lorenzo

Key technologies are converging and have started to impact the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) ecosystem. These technologies are Fifth Generation (5G) wireless communications, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT). Each of these technologies will have a huge impact, not only on ICT, but also across virtually all industry sectors as they will permeate a myriad of use cases. However, the combination of these technologies will disrupt industry verticals, from tasks occupations, to business processes or radical new business models,

In this talk Ericsson will share some of the opportunities but also the challenges to capture the promise of 5G, AI and IoT.
