5G + AI + Healthcare
The world is standing at the cusp of the 4th industrial revolution with 5G and AI being two of the key pillars propelling us forward.
Both 5G and Artificial Intelligence are prominently in the news today. This talk will explain the benefits of 5G – extreme low latency, high bandwidth, high capacity, ultra-high reliability – and how it enables new technologies to advance the enterprise space utilizing private wireless networks that can be applied to all verticals. To better illustrate the advantages, the healthcare sector is examined, which includes a subset of industrials. Coupled with AI, the possibilities for new businesses, new solutions, and new applications are endless. A diverse set of use cases will be explored in conjunction with the technical benefits and capabilities of 5G and AI.
