This perspective covers the networks and technologies powering the network and computing, the services and applications delivering user value, all the socio-economic innovation it enables and also the policies governing its use and evolution.
This is the space for an open and broad conversation with those people who are drivers of this next generation internet.

Hi All, I thought it might be interesting to zoom in on what AI means for 5G networks and the challenges that need tackling to realise the benefits, other challenges and on-going work on standardisation. Inspiration for this post comes from Yue Wang, Samsung UK.
