    Metaverse

    Like many of today’s most ubiquitous technologies, “the metaverse” remains somewhat anchored in the realms of science fiction. Some people envision it as the successor to the mobile internet — an interconnected digital space that lets people do things they can’t do in the physical world. Others view it as the optimization of extended reality and the blurring of the lines between, hardware, software, and wetware and the ways it will impact our physical environment. We see its applications are not limited to gaming and entertainment but include virtual workspaces, remote collaboration, the gamification of education, and other applications which are particularly relevant and exciting given the current COVID-19 pandemic.

    Connectivity

    Connectivity has become an essential part of our everyday lives. The advancement of networking technologies now achieves faster connectivity speeds, ultra-low latency, and greater bandwidth, which can speed society’s evolution, transform industries, and dramatically enhance user experiences. The global pandemic has only expedited the inexorable procession toward full connectivity. This session will explore the development path of the tools that will usher in the next generation of communication and information dissemination, including cellular 5G/6G, Wi-Fi, fiber optics, satellites, wearables, and more, as well as the broad spectrum of applications these technologies may enable.

    Edge Computing

    Edge computing is the computing done at or near the source. The increase of IoT devices and AI/ML applications is producing a massive amount of data and requires high computing capacity at the edge. This session covers both edge device and network edge. High-power efficiency and low latency are some of the key considerations, as humans keep pushing the limits.

    Industry 5.0

    The data revolution and acceleration of DX has poised robots, intelligent machines, and the industrial internet of things to take over much of the boring, repetitive work required for much of the world’s production with us at the helm to control and direct. The efforts should minimize manufacturing error, input variation, ramp up speed, and make processes more reliable. Not only will this ramp production, but will also enable cleaner more efficient industry. Instead of sustainability being a constraint, new paradigm shifting innovations are already showing that innovation and cleantech is the more cost efficient and effective way to operate. These trends will enable humans to focus on control, direction, and strategic effort rather than the time intensive labors of the past.

    Future of Mobility

    The more people know, the more they need to explore. And while many of the technologies we will feature at DX week may make it simple to explore virtually, humans will forever need face-to-face contact. How they travel to enjoy those engagements and how we transport the things we need from where they are produced to where they will be consumed hinges on the future of mobility. Few would argue that the widespread adoption of electric vehicles is a matter of “when,” not “if.” But myriad challenges remain before many of the world’s citizens will be ready to accept EVs, autonomously driven vehicles, and other transportation innovations. Car sharing, battery swapping, vehicle-to-grid integration, behind-the-grid storage, clean hydrogen, second-life, and alternative chemistries such as solid-state batteries are sure to make appearances during our discussions. The field is wide open.
