Behind the scenes of tomorrow

A journey through future technologies with Ericsson’s Head of Research

Future technologies for intelligent society

A technological step change is happening now. Galvanized by tomorrow’s connected intelligent network platforms, future technologies will fundamentally change the way our societies innovate, collaborate, produce, govern and live sustainably. This will create a whole different kind of business model. Traditional business processes will be re-engineered based on intuitive human-machine interactivity, and realized through real-time, autonomous and inherently secure platforms.

As we edge into intelligent society and industry, the increased agility and capacity of networks will accelerate change to a greater extent than ever before. Networks will become increasingly intelligent, enabling zero-touch autonomy and distributed cloud technologies. Connectivity will become tactile, enabling a new wave of immersive technologies based on remote touch and haptic interactivity. The future is at our fingertips. How will you capture the value?
