How will 5G + AI Transform the Wireless Edge?

January 15, 2019

Today, we primarily associate intelligence with the cloud, but as we head into the 5G era that will require us to efficiently connect trillions of things, we will need to rethink the way intelligence is scaled. To get to the 5G future that we envision, intelligence, compute, content and more must be distributed to the devices that form the wireless edge. This requires on-device AI capabilities for smartphones, cars, sensors and other connected things, so they can perceive, reason and act on their own. This wireless edge transformation has already begun, and it will bring many societal benefits, ranging from improved driver safety and more personal virtual assistants to superior photography, enhanced security and privacy and more.
