“Internet of Skills – Where 5G, Robotics and AI Meet”

Today’s internet, accessed by fixed and mobile networks, allows us to transmit files, voice and video across the planet. With the emergence of an ultra-responsive and reliable ‘Tactile Internet,’ advanced techniques in robotics and artificial intelligence, we predict the emergence of an ‘Internet of Skills’ which allows the transmission of labor globally. It will invoke an important shift from content-delivery to skillset-delivery networks, where engineers would service cars or surgeons performing critical operations anywhere on the planet. For this to work, however, we require some fundamental laws of physics to be “reengineered.” This keynote will discuss the vision, technology and building blocks for said emerging Internet of Skills. I will deep-dive into some of these building blocks, such as 5G and its ability to deliver ultra-low latency networking capabilities as well as open challenges from a signal processing point of view.
