The advent of 5G promises to change our lives in a radically big way. This revolution will transform cars to be self-driving, communication networks to be software-defined and autonomous, virtual reality and augmented reality to be mobile and completely untethered, and internet of things (IoT) sensors to be intelligent and connected. Behind this 5G revolution, AI plays a significant role in the planning, forecasting, building, development, and deployment of 5G. It also enables a new set of experiences, including intelligent stores and factories, autonomous flying drones, robots, and holographic meetings.
