5G heralds connectivity we can take for granted
When mains electricity was first introduced, it was spotty and unreliable. Now, we don’t talk about it as a technology or even as a variable, it’s a given. 5G with its ultra-high-speeds, bandwidth and low latency promises the same for connectivity, making mission critical communications possible between just about everything. This kind of connectivity is the essence, the life blood of the Internet of Things, of Smart Cities, of connected medicine and of autonomous driving. Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) communications is the enabler that will likely accelerate the adoption of driverless vehicles. 5G connectivity will enable 8K streaming and virtual and augmented Reality (VR/AR) entertainment and gaming. And 5G could well revolutionize the way supply chains and manufacturing ecosystems are connected and managed. Few were more excited and animated about 5G than Verizon CEO, Hans Vestberg in his keynote address.

That first line reminds me about how easy it is for people to take it for granted that there are newer and better technologies coming out every single day. Honestly speaking, at the rate that all of this technology changes, it's a wonder that our storage rooms aren't chock full of obsolete equipment as we speak!

Thanks for sharing the highlights of the event which are too little to appreciate. I guess it never beats having to gain the experience personally while being present at the location. It does seem like this event is not to be missed from now onwards if you are definitely wanting to improve on your data infrastructure.

I am a fan of additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing. I’ve been following this sector for years, watching it develop from a hobbyist tool to a prototype solution, and now to a fully-fledged industrial technology. These developments are due, in no small part, to the companies now participating in the sector that range from small startups to large printer and consumables brands. Earlier this month, I attended the Additive Manufacturers User Group in Chicago, to see the latest and greatest from this fast-moving industry.
The statement “Better data drives better decisions” may seem simple, but the analogy of “bad data in bad data out” has never been truer, or more significant. After all, we are not looking to collect data for its own sake, we are looking to collect and use data to derive better outcomes.
Reliable data is the lifeblood of the supply chain for OEMs hoping to manage material shortages in a volatile network.
It’s hard to imagine a technology likely to have more impact in 2019 than artificial intelligence (AI). It was the talk of the show at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) at the start of January and the debate continued later that month at APEX in San Diego.
