What does the future of the arts, healthcare, and telecommunications look like?

In this InTechnology video, Camille talks with Mischa Dohler, VP of Emerging Technologies at Ericsson. They get into 5G and emerging tech in the arts and healthcare, along with advancements in telecommunications technology like AI, neuromorphic computing, and quantum computing.

5G and Emerging Tech in the Arts and Healthcare

Mischa shares his enthusiasm for merging cutting-edge technologies within the realms of the arts and healthcare. He highlights his recent collaboration with surgeons on developing 5G-enabled telesurgery to enhance life-saving procedures through quicker operations. Although the feasibility of conducting surgeries over distances exceeding 10,000 kilometers using 5G was only tested last month, significant advancements are still required before it becomes possible to perform such remote surgeries on humans. In the arts sector, Mischa recounts orchestrating the first 5G-powered concert from Berlin with his daughter in London, achieving ultra-low latency. He imagines a radical transformation in the consumption of arts through the adoption of 5G alongside holography and virtual reality, foreseeing a blend of engineering innovation and artistic creativity to forge extraordinary experiences.

Advancements in Telecommunications Technology

Camille engages Mischa on the topic of groundbreaking technologies in telecommunications, spanning AI, neuromorphic computing, and quantum computing. Mischa observes the telecom sector’s receptiveness to novel AI applications, highlighting their potential to unlock capabilities far beyond the reach of individual engineers. He cites instances of AI being utilized to enhance customer support, automate coding, replicate large-scale systems, and design new systems through generative AI models, including their application in bolstering security and privacy measures. Mischa underscores the role of AI as a powerful augmentative tool aiding engineers in crafting superior and more secure systems.

Upon discussing neuromorphic computing, Mischa outlines the limitations of traditional von Neumann architecture, noting its high energy and time consumption. Neuromorphic computing, contrastingly, leverages innovative materials to integrate computing and storage processes, offering energy efficiency and speed enhancements. Although its compatibility with 6G technology requires further exploration, Mischa anticipates its application in managing energy consumption and enhancing antenna technologies. He forecasts the emergence of quantum computing in the near future, well-suited for tackling material science challenges, while neuromorphic computing will more effectively address digital issues. Mischa envisions a future where diverse computing technologies coexist to optimize performance.
