The fifth-generation mobile network, or 5G, is the next generation of mobile network that will influence the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industrial 4.0, by supporting smarter and evolving societies. Commercial 5G networks are estimated to cover 12 percent of the world's mobile connections (1.1 billion) by 2025, generating revenues of up to US$1.3 trillion for operators. The technology behind 5G will boost data transfer speeds by approximately 100 times.
5G has the potential to transform our daily lives. Traveling may never be the same again, thanks to 5G's near-instantaneous translations, which means that if you're travelling abroad and chatting with locals, you'll feel as if you're speaking the same language in real time.
The agriculture business is another 5G use case. Farmers today sometimes do not realise if a plant or food is sick until it is too late. As a precautionary step, they turn to chemicals. Farmers will be able to monitor their fields using 5G and be warned at the first indication of a sick plant before the harm is done, which will eliminate the need for herbicides.
5G is now accessible on newer smartphones. Few technologies compliment one other as well as AI and 5G. The 5G ecosystem's complexity needs a degree of service assurance that can't be achieved only through labour. AI will underlie fifth-generation mobile networks in a variety of ways, from network diagnostics to cybersecurity to tailored apps that will profoundly transform how businesses and consumers interact.
More than half of service providers have integrated some part of AI into their 5G networks, indicating that there is already substantial industry investment in the coupling. The essence of why AI and 5G are so complementary is data: 5G creates a flood of data that AI can quickly evaluate and learn from in order to create unique client experiences.
The learnings will become even more trustworthy and effective with 5G's network assistance in the background while AI conducts simulations for analysis, reasoning, data fitting, clustering, and optimization.
In fact, because of the inevitable expansion of 5G-powered Internet of Things (IoT) devices everywhere from the factory floor to autonomous vehicles, 5G will increase the amount of data not linearly, but exponentially. Each of these devices, as well as its sensors, generates fresh data inputs, resulting in ever-more precise AI models.
Repetitive, time-consuming, and tedious tasks can be automated.
By automating repetitive activities, AI will empower service providers, companies, and other members of the 5G ecosystem to better employ highly trained people. To be honest, it's critical for any high-tech firm to figure out how AI can automate as many low-value activities as possible; the United States is expected to suffer a data scientist shortage of up to 250,000 over the next decade, so engineering talent must be strategically leveraged.
