The 5G Era: Transforming Business, Industries & Society
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.

While giving consumers access to more information faster than ever before, 5G’s biggest impact will be on industries and businesses, transforming the way they operate and function. What are the key benefits and challenges of 5G technology, and how will it change the way we work and communicate throughout the world? In this program, speakers offer their views on the advantages and disadvantages of 5G, its potential impact on society, and the prospects of U.S.-Japan collaboration.
