The Future of Truth


Open Event
The theme of the 2018 Ericsson Innovation Awards competition is 'The Future of Truth.' How will we find, validate and share truth in the age of ICT? This year's competition is underway, with talented student teams from around the globe striving to win the grand prize: a trip to Stockholm, an expert Ericsson mentorship, and a €25,000 grand prize! Join our live stream on May 17th at 5:00 pm GMT!

What is the future of truth?

Every day, more than 2 million articles are published online and 500 million tweets are posted. Information communication technology allows us to consume and share information at an incredible rate, and even delve into alternate forms of reality. But, as we use that information to inform our personal belief systems, decision making, purchases, and actions, how can we know what is true?

Ericsson's introduction of 5G will allow us to connect to people, industries, societies, and ideas faster than ever before. But how can we ensure that the information we find, share and consume is factual? What standards are we using? How can those we are sharing with evaluate information for themselves?

These are the questions that talented student teams from around the world have been answering throughout the Ericsson Innovation Awards 2018 competition. They've submitted over 1,400 really innovative ideas, and on May 17th one of our four finalists will become the new reigning EIA champion in Stockholm, Sweden!
