Last year's appearance

This spring, the next generation of wireless communication technologies, known as 5G, has started its commercial service in Japan. The new 5G standard promises ultra-high-speed, ultra-low latency and massive connectivity, expected to bring significant improvements in mobile communication and become the new infrastructure for various industries. In addition, the enhanced capability to exchange large-volume and high-density data is thought to accelerate the use of digital technologies such as AI and IoT. This year, with the theme “5G and NEXT”, we will discuss how the use of the latest digital technologies such as 5G and AI will bring change to both the business environment and the society. We will also take a look into the inevitable course of digital transformation due to the recent impact of the novel coronavirus.

To prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus infection, the summit this time will be held without audience at the venue, and will be streamed live on "NIKKEI CHANNEL", Nikkei's video content portal site.
Anyone can watch the streaming video through this site without prior registration.
