Tech on the Horizon

We are on the threshold of advances set to transform businesses and the global economy. CES 2019 provided a glimpse of some of the disruptive technologies that are profoundly changing lives. In this issue, we look at 5G tech that was the talk of the show in multiple sessions. During the keynote from Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg, he explained the “currencies” of 5G that will blend physical and digital worlds using the Internet of Things, augmented and virtual reality, arti cial intelligence (AI), self-driving vehicles, advanced robotics, 3D printing and wearable tech. 5G will connect millions more devices to the internet and promises to dramatically increase download speeds while providing a host of new services to consumers.
