IoT Keynote - Wednesday, May 11, 2016
5G enabling the Tactile Internet

Abstract – The tactile Internet will enable a global network to control and steer the Interent of Things in real time. 5G will be the first generation of mobile communication systems that will enable the tactile Internet. The talk will advocate the need for the tactile Internet and describe the need for new technologies such as network coding and compressed sensing to break with the commonly accpeted trade-offs betwen throughput, latency, resilience, and security. The talk will also highlight change from purely centralized architectures to meshed solutions.
