For decades, Artificial Intelligence, or AI, was the engine of high-level STEM research. Most consumers became aware of the technology’s power and potential through internet platforms like Google and Facebook, and retailer Amazon. Today, AI is essential across a vast array of industries, including health care, banking, retail, and manufacturing.
As we navigate through a post-pandemic era, many enterprises are now vying to be the first in their industries to adopt and implement AI within their business models. One such industry is telecommunications, a domain which has not only evolved rapidly to meet the needs of global institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic, but has also acted as an adhesive in keeping the world connected and enabling companies to maintain business perpetuity as efficiently as humanly possible under the circumstances.

Ubiquitous mobile broadband – Powering the communication revolution, from MCX to AI and everything in between
Ubiquitous mobile broadband has the power to change the world for the better. Embracing it fully would greatly bene- fit all African nations and help them leapfrog from the developing world to the developed,
To understand the complexities of the relationship between telcos and hyperscalers, it’s important to understand what has driven negative sentiment around this conversation over the last decade, and the factors contributing toward a flipping of the narrative.
Compared to traditional manual processes, this kind of machine learning and AI-based approach can provide IT teams with a platform that not only exceeds the levels of speed and efficiency at which they manually operate, but also improves on the accuracy as well. With predictive AIOp ( Artificial intelligence for IT operationss), IT teams are able to effectively identify and resolve any issues well before the company’s employees can raise any complaints or any outages occur.
We have the responsibility to preserve “humanity” for future generations, both in terms of our existence, but also in terms of our roles. We do not want to delegate our humanity by delegating our minds and thinking to machines. Instead, we want to enhance our intelligence to improve the human experience with the aid of artificial intelligence.
In a world with more connected devices than humans, we face a telecoms dilemma – how do we increase connectivity while reducing greenhouse gas emissions? Emerging technologies like 5G and 6G promise to change the face of communication, but their development requires increased power consumption and carbon emissions
Some areas well-positioned to embrace AI include written communications, with apps like Grammarly that automate writing tips and corrections; customer service, with virtual assistants and chat-bots programmed to sort and priorities inquiries and troubleshooting; performance management, with products like OnLoop that replace inefficient perfor- mance reviews with self-writing feedback summaries; and audio-visual communications, with virtual backgrounds built-into apps like Google Meet and Zoom and noise-can- celing solutions that promote focus and engagement like IRIS Clarity.

Investment in new technologies will define the future of next-gen supply chains in the age of ecommerce
The surge in ecommerce over the past 18 months has demonstrated the need for a new Industry 4.0 supply chain model that is equipped to meet demands of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’. Digital transformation is drastically transforming supply chains.
Global demand for eSIMs is skyrocketing — in 2021, there were 1.2 billion eSIM-enabled devices, and this figure is expected to rise to 3.4 billion by 2025. In recent years the world of work has changed at a rapid pace and businesses face the challenge of determining which new technology is right for them. Here Hamish White, CEO of eSIM as a Service provider Mobilise, explains how eSIMs can help manage employees and provide business opportunities.

Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC): a natural place for secure data processing, privacy and trustworthiness across computing continuum
MEC is supporting multiple use cases and vertical market segments, including automotive, industrial IoT, AR/VR and gaming. In particular, Digital Twins cover a vast domain of applications and use cases, that may need MEC support in various vertical market segments.
In this article, Claus takes a closer look at the key factors fuelling eSIM growth, including increased uptake across IoT use cases, growing awareness of the benefits of eSIM technology amongst mobile operators and consumers, and new opportunities presented by 5G technology.
As the world hurtles into the Fourth Industrial Revolution,
which is marrying the digital space with our physical space,
cellular wireless networks are quickly becoming the
real-time crossroads for how humans interact with our
increasingly intelligent machines.
Whether you say “OK Google”, “Hey Siri”, interact with
Alexa, or an operator’s voice assistant, the “wake up word”
already uses local AI, and customers now expect an instantaneous response or at least one within the Doherty Threshold of under 400 milliseconds. Such low latencies are
already achieved today, with some processing happening
closer to the Edge by servers installed by Google, Apple, or
Amazon in operator networks. But a purely Cloud model
can only let us go so far.
