The invitation to Unmanned Life reflects the growing consensus in the global Telco and Tech communities of the role and relevance of Unmanned Life’s AI powered software platform driven Autonomy-as-a-Service acting as the bridge between IoT and 5G to enable the Autonomous Economy.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is the world’s largest and most prestigious technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.

IEEE 5G is a unique event, the first of its kind, and was brought about to established to address the enormous implications of this technology at the vanguard of modern society. Uniting experts from industry, academia and research to exchange ideas and share their vision for 5G, the goal of the summit was to encourage innovative collaboration by leaders to benefit all of society.

5G is the next generation of wireless networks, which will be the future foundation of the emerging cutting edge technologies, including autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and the internet of things. Telecommunications companies are rushing to debut commercial 5G, and this global technological race is opening up a plethora of questions on how to handle the unprecedented increases in traffic, data and need for bandwidth. Industry experts around the world are working together to find solutions, and talking about millimetre waves, small cells, massive MIMO, full duplex and beamforming.

The implications of such a fast connection are radical. Instant communication, downloads in seconds and telemedicine, and most importantly, speeds fast enough to enable the autonomous economy, including driverless cars, which can be controlled through the Unmanned Life’s Autonomy-as-a-Service platform.
