Former CEO of BEA Systems and Veritas Technologies Bill Coleman is interviewed by instructor Ernestine Fu. 5G will bring much faster wireless broadband speeds to smartphones and other devices on mobile networks.

This will undoubtedly bring massive change to industries such as gaming, video streaming, and remote work. The speakers dive into the state of 5G technology, where we are in the rollout, and what is yet to be done.

Course Description: The next wave of technological innovation and globalization will affect our countries, our societies, and ourselves. In the next economy, we will see a fusion of technologies and research that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.

We will see extraordinary technology advances that are commensurate with those of the first, second, and third industrial revolutions. These earlier industrial revolutions introduced the use of steam power to mechanize production, development of groundbreaking inventions in transportation, telecommunications, and manufacturing, as well as more recently, the introduction of the digital era.

As the next revolution is transforming humanity, MED/CEE 214: Frontier Technology explores the development and application of key emerging technologies in society: AI/ML; Smart Cities and Urban Mobility; Advanced Life Sciences; Telecommunications with 5G; and Data Privacy, Ethics, and Policy.
