5G and AI use cases – how 5G lifts artificial intelligence - Information Age

#artificialintelligence

But how will AI and 5G most affect our everyday business lives? What are 5G and AI use cases? Convergence makes 5G and AI use cases exciting: 5G could unleash the artificial intelligence revolution, moving it into a different league and creating new AI use cases. When Apple launched the iPhone, few people understood its significance. There was a reason for this.


AT&T doubling down on 5G Flying COW, robot dogs

ZDNet

A flying COW ("cellular on wings") is providing a 5G network in areas with limited infrastructure and after natural disasters. The technology convergence of drones and 5G is an interesting test case for rapid, flexible network deployments that provide a useful stopgap in critical areas. "We had intermittent, weak LTE signal at the flight location before we launched the 5G Flying COW," said Ethan Hunt, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Principal Program Manager, AT&T, about a recent test. "We flew the drone up to about 300 feet, turned on the signal and it began transmitting strong 5G coverage to approximately 10 square miles." The rollout of 5G is notoriously troublesome, particularly in areas that may benefit most from coverage, such as rural zones.


Tray.io Cracks the Code on Hyperautomation for the Enterprise

#artificialintelligence

Tray.io, the leader in low-code automation and integration, announced new capabilities designed to accelerate enterprise hyperautomation initiatives. Tray.io is extending end-to-end connectivity across user types with Connector Builder where low-code developers can quickly, easily, and visually develop reusable connectors on demand. Additionally, a new Connectivity API experience for developers simplifies the integration of thousands of underlying endpoints into just three API calls. The company also introduced new frameworks and features that give users the ability to build complex integrations across teams with the speed and governance required to increase enterprise velocity at scale. The number of APIs is growing at a conservative estimate of 10% annually and is expected to reach more than 300 million by 2030.


Port of Tyne lands BT 5G private network to boost smart port ambitions

#artificialintelligence

Hot on the heels of forging a partnership with Ericsson to provide commercial 5G private networks for the UK market, BT is to install a new 5G private network and other surveillance and smart technology to enable the Port of Tyne to advance its ambition to become a world-class "smart port". The Port of Tyne is one of the UK's major deep-sea ports – operating in bulk and conventional cargo, car terminals, cruise and ferry, and port-centric logistics and estates. Entirely self-financing, it receives no government funding, is run on a commercial basis and reinvests all profits back into the port for the benefit of all of its stakeholders. During a decade of development, the Port of Tyne has invested more than £130m in diversifying its operations to handle a growing range of commodities. Building on the port's in-house capability – the 2050 Maritime Innovation Hub – the Port of Tyne is now implementing a new hybrid fibre, 4G and 5G private network to build a future-proofed digital technology infrastructure.


Report On Constellation Network (DAG) - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

Constellation is a distributed network that enables fast, scalable solutions for organizations who need to process and transfer data securely and build interoperability for connected sensors and devices. As computing moves increasingly to the edge, Constellation provides the only scalable, secure solution for a world with more connectivity, more centralization, and more concentrated risk. Rather, the initiative aims to create a universally compatible "knowledge application." As a result, Constellation employs a "hybrid of cryptocurrency/blockchain, distributed systems computing, machine learning, and enterprise (SME) adoption" that combines numerous methodologies. The Constellation Hypergraph network uses directed acyclic graph (DAG) technology to introduce a revolutionary "L 0 state channel" and token standard.


Leading edge computing companies of 2022

#artificialintelligence

Edge computing refers to a solution where data processing, analysis and in some cases, actions, occur close to the place where the data originated. Edge computing often relies on a sporadic connection to cloud computing systems, although some setups similarly connect to nearby devices -- in which case the systems might be referred to as part of the Internet of Things (IoT). Edge computing solutions operate in circumstances where current cloud computing systems won't suffice, due to one or more of the following concerns: Wherever you encounter one or more of the above four constraints, you'll also find an example of an edge computing solution. Machines, such as autonomous cars or industrial robots, generate huge quantities of data and act with low latency. Some agricultural systems operate in areas that lack high-bandwidth network connections.


Does Your Business Require AI For Dedicated Internet Access? - DataScienceCentral.com

#artificialintelligence

Internet connectivity has few available options. So, the choice comes down to a dedicated internet connection or broadband. The choice depends on security, cost, and performance. The speed and quality of broadband depend on the traffic that goes through the network at a given time. So, dedicated internet is the solution for businesses that need speedy internet.


Why 5G And The Edge Could Be The Keys To The Metaverse - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

It was also a prominent buzzword at the recent Mobile World Congress (MWC) show in Barcelona, the largest industry gathering for those concerned about connectivity. While much of the attention is focused on the cloud aspects of a'metaverse,' let's not forget that it will not get off the ground until underlying telecoms networks can support it -- not just for a few of us, but on a national and global scale. Accessed through augmented reality (AR) tools and VR headsets, Web3 is ushering in a new level of experience where websites and apps will be able to process information in a smart, human-like way in real-time using machine learning. Any'advanced' use cases -- self-driving cars, remote surgery or the type of AR and VR tools that have now been rebranded as'metaverse apps' -- will rely on next-generation connectivity to come to fruition. Currently, VR and AR are dependent on powerful computers and specialized equipment that largely rely on data stored on the user's side.


The 5 best PC gaming headsets of 2022

ZDNet

Nintendo Gameboys and SEGA Master Systems were among the early consoles that brought video games outside of arcades and into the living room. Now, 8-bit machines have been transformed into powerful PC gaming rigs and consoles, including Microsoft's Xbox and the Sony PlayStation 5. As consoles and PCs have become more capable and internet connectivity is standard (and sometimes required), gaming has become far more immersive. Headsets, which allow you to communicate with other players in real-time, are a key component of the modern gaming experience. However, just as internet lags can ruin the moment, a low-grade headset can mean you have to deal with poor audio, crackling, drops in conversation, and discomfort.


Three will switch off its 3G network by the end of 2024

Daily Mail - Science & tech

British telecommunications company Three has announced it will retire its 3G network by the end of 2024 after two decades of service. Switching off 3G will'free up resources' to allow Three to focus on improving its customers' 4G experience and rolling out 5G, the firm said in a statement. But the decision means Three customers with old phones that don't support 4G or 5G – such as the iPhone 5 or older – will have to buy a new device. Three launched on March 3, 2003 (03/03/03) as the UK's first 3G-only network, although it has since rolled out 4G and 5G networks. It is designed to increase speed, reduce latency, and improve flexibility of wireless services.
