Event description

Description

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED

Join the Polsky Center as we welcome Dr. Dennis Ong MBA '00, Head of 5G Mobility and Distinguished Architect at Verizon Smart Communities for a lively discussion on 5G and its role in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Think 5G is all about faster speeds? Think again. This isn't just another ‘G'. 5G is the fundamental platform for the 4th Industrial Revolution and will become an integral part of societies and civil infrastructures, just like roads, energy, and internet. Examples include the use of AR/VR for remote surgeries. The safe deployment of autonomous vehicles which will need to communicate with its surroundings. The widespread implementation of mobile robots in factories and homes. 5G will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another and will usher in a new industrial revolution.
