Qualcomm President Ammon: 5G+AI will transform many industries and open up the future of intelligent interconnection

These are exciting times for the industry as we enter a new era of intelligent cloud connectivity powered by AI and 5G. Everything will be connected to the cloud, interconnected in a reliable way. Now, terminals and experiences are inseparable from content, data, computing power and storage in the cloud. 5G’s fiber-like connection speeds and low latency, coupled with advanced processing capabilities, provide the foundation for all of this to make our edge devices smarter. The combination of 5G and AI that will impact every aspect of our lives and numerous industries is the next big technological change.
To achieve AI at scale, we must implement distributed intelligence across the network. Today, intelligence is widely distributed in the cloud and gradually migrated to the terminal side. In the future, massive data from billions of edge terminals will require the creation of a new edge cloud. In the new edge cloud, the processing of content and control will move to where the traffic is generated. Now that edge cloud and 5G can reduce latency and enable new applications and services, we will see improved performance, security and privacy.

Edge cloud combined with terminal-side AI will also facilitate a wider range of new use cases. For us, life will be richer because of the realization of more intuitive, immersive and contextual experiences – from interactive content to unbounded virtual reality to real-time voice translation. In more industries, 5G and AI combined with edge cloud will also promote enterprise innovation in a positive and disruptive way. You will see how people can take advantage of the vast amounts of data generated by intelligent machines and objects. People can conduct on-premises, real-time network analysis, driving business insights, taking productivity to a whole new level, and bringing better levels of automation and control.
This trend will also change the way we look at endpoints, as the cloud will play a bigger role relative to operating systems and app stores. Imagine (the terminal) being always online and getting almost unlimited storage and processing power from the cloud. The realization of this scenario will promote the emergence of more powerful and potential applications. When we see applications such as WeChat and Tencent QQ today, we realize that the evolution of applications is so fast, and the functions of future applications will be more powerful and independent of the operating system. When people can connect devices and the cloud in a reliable way, there is no need to develop separate applications for multiple operating systems. Regardless of the ecosystem, applications and experiences will be the main focus, which will accelerate innovation and the development of new applications, further expanding the usability of applications.

5G and AI will transform many segments and industries.

First, let’s talk about education. Using technologies such as 5G and AI, intelligent online education can become richer and more inclusive. It will be able to support differentiated and personalized learning. Technologies such as real-time translation will allow students to access content from global education databases and learn in their own language. Furthermore, it is clear that network connectivity will make the education system more flexible. As of April 2020, just over two months ago, a total of 1.7 billion students worldwide had adopted distance learning, an experience that accentuated the digital divide caused by the broadband connectivity gap, but 5G could connect them. Once the capabilities of 5G and edge cloud are available, a new learning experience, high-quality interactive content, and a more productive and intelligent society can be realized anytime, anywhere.
Another important area is healthcare, especially in the current environment. We can see how 5G and AI can transform healthcare, enabling more accurate early diagnosis, health monitoring, and drug and vaccine development. The key to making it all work is connectivity. In the US alone, it is expected that by 2030, 50% of medical care will be performed online. With technology, you can enjoy high-quality video, massive data-backed images and research, and real-time AI interactions. In just one small step of technological innovation in this area, we are already starting to see first responders now in South Korea able to use 5G-connected 360-degree cameras to transmit data in real-time from the emergency room to a team of doctors. For the healthcare industry, which affects nearly 10% of global GDP, technology and AI will help expand coverage, improve experience, and reduce costs.
Now, let’s talk about the future of productivity and productivity. This is another important transformational area that is undergoing change, with the migration of enterprise workflows to the cloud to enable smarter and more optimized data management. Now these systems must support anytime, anywhere work, and network connectivity helps improve today’s productivity. Think of all the benefits that 5G can bring, now that data is tightly linked to the cloud and AI. For example, in recent months, 84% of organizations indicated that partial work from home or telecommuting will likely continue. Now, many companies are even starting to rethink how to merge the digital space and the physical world, with technology and AI complemented by extended reality (XR), augmented reality and holographic remoteness to support new ways of working. The transformation of the business has only just begun.
Retail is another area that will be significantly impacted. 5G and AI can transform the retail industry from end-to-end, covering everything from intelligent supply chain, logistics management, and new in-store experiences. In the 5G environment, Boundless XR (Boundless XR), separate rendering and AI processing technologies can bring a personalized shopping experience. You can see AI-tailored product recommendations in the window, and even see a photo-realistic image of yourself in the Display. High-throughput, low-latency 5G XR glasses will also use cloud and terminal-side intelligence to map virtual objects to the real world. There are great opportunities in this.
When we think about industry, we have to talk about manufacturing. The manufacturing industry is currently undergoing major changes, and we can see the changes brought about by intelligent interconnection. 5G and AI will enable a new generation of reconfigurable, flexible manufacturing. The enterprise private network will provide secure industrial data management through highly reliable 5G, and data processing will be carried out separately between the terminal and edge cloud or local server as required. The ultra-reliable and low-latency features of 5G will enable industrial-grade remote control of machines; intelligent operations with end-to-end tracking and control functions will raise productivity to a higher level. We will even see innovations never imagined.
Finally, 5G and AI will open up a bright future for the transportation industry. Wireless technology is already transforming the transportation industry as we connect our cars to the cloud. We expect 5G and AI to make cars smarter: cars will have smart cockpits, autonomous driving and data analysis capabilities and new services. From a safety perspective, 5G C-V2X promises to make travel safer, more efficient and more enjoyable as we connect cars to cars, cars to infrastructure, and cars to pedestrians. Roadside infrastructure will utilize AI-assisted cameras to sense and implement traffic flow control. Combining sensors and AI in computing platforms will make intersections safer. 5G commercial use can also make full use of the combination of roadside units and public network small base stations to create efficient collaboration between smart cities and operators. This is a potentially dramatic change in the transportation industry.
All of the above mentioned must be achieved through cooperation. A smart, connected future requires multiple companies to work together. Qualcomm has always been committed to cooperation within a global ecosystem, innovation and collaboration to create new technologies. We are proud to partner with many leading companies around the world and in China to leverage 5G and AI to drive innovation and growth across multiple industries.
Unleashing the full potential of AI in the cloud, at the edge, and at the endpoint is incredibly exciting. 5G will be a platform for connecting all things with intelligence, which means huge opportunities for all players in the mobile industry.
