Professor of Entrepreneurship Dr. Thomas Pittz led a lively discussion addressing the question: “How will 5G change the world?”
With 1G, we could call people over cell phones. With 2G, we could text. 3G allowed us to access the internet, and 4G gave us streaming capabilities. But with 5G technology, latency (the time it takes for devices to talk to each other) is removed, signals are more direct, and our phones become more efficient and reliable than ever.
Dr. Pittz and honors students discussed implications from radiation and mental health to climate change, heat-generation, and global economic growth. The advancement of technology and its effects on education was discussed as well.
