Artificial intelligence is anticipated to revolutionize every sector in the next 10 years, and 5G will be the spark for this revolution. Combined, the two technologies will make it possible to install Internet of Things devices and smart networks quickly, securely, and affordably.
Ronnie Vasishta, senior vice president of telecom at NVIDIA, said AI-powered 5G networks would speed up the “4th industrial revolution and create unparalleled opportunities in business and the society” in a special address at the 2021 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona a few weeks earlier.
“Billions of things are located throughout the network and data centers. A ubiquitous 5G network will connect these data centers and intelligent things at the rate, latency, cost, and power required by the application,” Vasishta said. “As this network morphs to adapt to 5G, not only will AI drive innovation, but it will also be required to manage, organize, and increase the efficiency of the network itself.”
Contrary to earlier generations of wireless technology, 5G was developed in the digital period for IoT. Billions of sensors, such as video cameras, can be connected through 5G to edge data centers for artificial intelligence (AI).
Currently, artificial intelligence combined with 5G connectivity is revolutionizing industries in multiple ways such as:
1. Automated Vehicle Assemble Using Thousands of Cameras:
In order to detect faults in cars, visual inspection software using deep learning algorithms is employed. This enables automakers to examine and pinpoint quality problems on the production line.
2. Traffic Control and Urban Infrastructure:
Visual inspection software driven by artificial intelligence (AI) keeps track of all moving and non-moving objects in a city to enhance city safety, space management, and traffic.
3. Language Processing and Conversational Artificial Intelligence:
A new generation of services will be enabled by conversational AI and natural language processing. Various sectors use chatbots, voice assistants, and other messaging systems to automate customer assistance. New techniques of interacting with people utilizing facial expressions and contextual awareness are being developed for conversational artificial intelligence (AI).
4. Augmented Reality Using Powerful Edge Computing:
Virtual reality and augmented reality are no longer tethered to workstations by cables. Because of advances in wireless technology, such as 5G, industry experts may make real-time design modifications in AR or be practically present everywhere in VR.
Due to the fact that the infrastructures for 5G and AI have been developed independently, they are inefficient today. Artificial intelligence (AI) apps are more secure if they are operated on the same computing platform as 5G apps. Telcos may create new income streams by deploying AI apps over 5G networks. In order to handle both 5G workloads and AI services, every 5G base station may be converted into an edge data center.
The converged platforms like NVIDIA’s AI-on-5G, which uses 5G as a secure and cost-effective communication fabric between sensors and AI apps, can greatly benefit telcos and enterprises.
