Listen: Jennifer, Associate Professor, Bert Lum discussed on Bytemarks Cafe
"Welcome back. This is bite marks. Cafe. I'm Bert Lum. And if you're just joining us, we're talking to Jennifer sunrise winter she's an associate professor over at the university of Hawaii. We're talking about the key topics that consider in the volving world of five G and big data. Oh, of course in the context of the upcoming PTC conference right before the break. I was thinking, you know, Jennifer. I mean, the work that you're doing is really important and from a research point, I think it really bears a lot of study now in terms of a conference like like, do you have an opportunity to share you this or discussing this or present any of the findings? Yes. Some of the scholars will there's a number of people that are interested in ethics actually a subgroup now of the research committee, that's focusing on this of information ethics. So yes, the answer is. Yes. And I think as I noted there a lot of the other people that are there are concerned about this. I mean be the their number one concern. But generally, I found some very vigorous discussions with people working for corporations, for example, or government officials who are trying to also grapple with. How do we how do we handle this? Another thing that I wanna ask you in in uniform research point, and from versus they say a commercial standpoint is the idea of five g and five g rollout. If you if you speak to a lot of the, you know, the big telecom providers, they're talking about five G really becoming deployed, you know, twenty nineteen twenty twenty give me yours sort of reality. Check of five G. Okay. So let me I I'm I'm not. I'm enthused very enthusiastic about it in a lot of ways. But I'm also very guarded in a lot of ways. And I think the main thing for consumers think about is the fact that this is gonna require a huge rollout of additional infrastructure. Right. And we're going to be very expensive. And it may not be everywhere. So we may not see the kinds of things that versus scholar. You know, the bridging the digital divide, for example. We may not see that. We mean the areas that are still grossly under served. We may also see a problem. I think that people haven't thought about is the fact that it really is going to require complete new Hanson's, and that they me it's going to be the first generation of them. And there may be a lot of glitches. So the good news is I think that that is definitely going to happen. We have a consistent standard developed the industry's behind it. But I think that as you mentioned earlier there's going to be a lot of hype that comes along with it five years from now, we're gonna see very different networks. I don't know how long it's gonna take for. Sample here in home Lulu for those of us living near the city centre to have something that we are really going to be excited about when grade to. Yeah. And if you think about the, you know, the the the cycle of of new hardware, especially when it comes to phones and the ability for let's say new chips to be incorporated. Have you know, Qualcomm was here maybe about a month ago, and they were talking about the release of their new Snapdragon in fifty five which is the sort of five G chip that will be going into some of the smartphones. Whether it's Simpson or or whatever, but the the cycle between the chip going into a smartphone, and it actually becoming available is still a couple of years out. I mean, I wouldn't imagine that new models of any say smart Samsung smartphone is going to have any Snapdragon eight fifty five in it, especially if there is no network to to jump on. Yeah.."
