The telecoms operators in 2020 have a unique chance to capitalise upon the opportunities offered by the emerging Artificial Intelligence sector along with other trends related to Augmented Reality, M2M and IoT sectors. As the telecoms sector evolves towards 5G – there are growing expectations that its deployment will greatly escalate development in these sectors and ultimately contribute to developing Smart Cities.
For many years Artificial Intelligence (AI) was just a futuristic concept - but with recent progress in Machine Learning capabilities; the AI sector is firmly pushed into the spotlight.
Virtual and Augmented Reality are also both going to benefit from current developments in the AI and mobile sector. The development of Wearable devices, improved connectivity from 5G and the many emerging applications for the technology, provides a positive environment for significant growth.
The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has highlighted both 5G and Artificial Intelligence as important innovations required to enable smart cities.
This BuddeComm report explores some of the broader trends and examples relating to AI and Smart Cities which will influence and provide opportunities for the telecoms sector.
We wanted to extend our Com World Series of telecoms industry events to the South Pacific region and we were in urgent need of a partner in the region who could assist us with confirming the involvement of governments, telcos and more. Paul Budde and his team executed this perfectly. Paul also provided us with very high quality reports on every aspect of the project, including an amazingly thorough and actionable report on the conference presentations and discussion.
