U.S. Manufacturing and Healthcare: How 5G Can Give U.S. Companies an Edge

A 5G Technology and Policy Workshop


High-speed mobile broadband networks are being deployed across the U.S., creating transformative opportunities for all parts of the U.S. economy. Two sectors in particular will benefit from the increased capacity, high reliability, and minimal latency that 5G networks offer: digital manufacturing and the provision of state-of-the-art healthcare.

Join the Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy for its sixth annual wireless technology and policy seminar to learn more about how 5G technology can enable new methods of care delivery while also bringing new digital manufacturing jobs to areas across the country. Experts will talk in detail about how 5G differs from previous generations of wireless technologies, the network characteristics most beneficial to manufacturers and health care providers, and the role of complementary technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI). Speakers will also explore:

  • How mission-critical, ultra-reliable, low-latency communication networks can spur the proliferation of remote and robotic surgery;

  • Ways in which 5G networks can support telemedicine solutions in rural areas;

  • Opportunities for 5G networks to catalyze medical research;

  • Scenarios in which 5G and AI can make the provision and consumption of healthcare services more efficient;

  • Producing a more efficient manufacturing process and more closely linking customers, suppliers, and manufacturers through artificial intelligence, data analytics, and real time machine learning;

  • The unique, industry-specific functionalities 5G network slicing can create in combination with cloud-based platforms that support design, production, sales, and distribution;

  • The public policy framework needed to harness the power of 5G for both the U.S. healthcare and manufacturing sectors.

Preliminary Agenda:

9:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. - Registration

10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. - Panel Discussion: 5G Technology and Complementary Technologies (5G standardization and deployment; 5G features for healthcare and manufacturing; role of artificial intelligence and synergies with 5G)

Panelists:

  • Moderator: Peter Rysavy, President, Rysavy Research

  • Amitava Ghosh, Head, Radio Interface Group, Nokia Bell Labs

  • Dr. William Lehr, Research Associate, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, MIT.

  • Jeff Stewart, Assistant Vice President - Global Public Policy, AT&T

  • Derek Johnston, Head of Marketing & 5G Business Development for Samsung Networks

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Panel Discussion: Can existing federal policies keep pace with technology innovation in the US.? An evaluation of the U.S policy framework for 5G and complementary technologies

High-speed mobile broadband networks and technologies such as AI are being deployed across the U.S., creating transformative opportunities for all parts of the U.S. economy. This panel will explore whether federal policies for spectrum allocation and licensing, infrastructure deployment and competition, and policies related to complementary technologies, will enable or thwart these opportunities to increase the U.S.' competitiveness and economic growth.

Panelists:

  • Moderator: Carolyn Brandon, Senior Industry and Innovation Fellow, Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy

  • Michael Mandel, Chief Economic Strategist, Progressive Policy Institute

Additional speakers will be announced soon.
