    Talk Title: Internet of Skills-Enabled by 5G Decoupled Uplink & Downlink

    Abstract: With the emergence of an ultra-responsive and reliable 5G \'Tactile Internet,\' advanced techniques in robotics and artificial intelligence, we advocate for the emergence of an \'Internet of Skills\' which allows the \"transmission of labor\" globally. It will invoke an important shift from content-delivery to skillset-delivery networks, where engineers would service cars or surgeons performing critical operations anywhere on the planet. For this to work, however, we require some fundamental changes to wireless communications systems. This presentation will look at the disruptive technology approaches in wireless 5G, notably the impact of decoupling up and downlinks; as well as the impact it has on different industry verticals.
