Convergence: Life Beyond 5G Speakers
6.00 – 6.30pm Doors Open for networking & familiarisation (times in UK)
6.30 – 7.15pm 6G & The Future of Hip Hop
We are promised an increasingly immersive world of entertainment: virtual and augmented reality, AI, metaverse and more, carried on new networks as revolutionary in their way as the internet. Is that realistic? Hip Hop is celebrating its 50th anniversary but what will Hip Hop in the 2030s feel like and what new experiences can we achieve? Join pioneers and creatives building the future of content to understand how things will change for you.
7.15 – 8.00pm 6G & The Future of Work
We saw how the pandemic changed working practices. Is there more change on the horizon? Is the promise of working anywhere, anytime possible and should we even want it? If automation takes away some of our work, when is that a good thing or a bad thing? Can we use AI to run side-hustles for us? Let’s explore what the next decade could or should bring, the risks and the remedies.
8.00 – 8.45pm 6G & The Future of Family
Is family life under threat? Old ways of managing relationships are changing as families live further apart. Younger generations have very different experiences and expectations growing up compared to older ones, different ways of socialising and different ways of forming relationships. At the same time, it’s never been easier to interact with people across the planet. What might family life be like in the 2030s? How best can generations in the 6G era bridge their divides?
8.45 – 9.30pm 6G & The Future of Sex
Pornhub gathers over 92 million visits a day, 529,200 GB of data per hour, with the vast majority of viewing on mobile (71.5% globally). With all the potential firepower that 6G is slated to possess, will porn be experienced in more realism than ever before? How will this impact our relationship with actual sex, and that of generations growing up?
09.30 – 09.50 6G & The Future of Social Media
In this fireside chat, we explore the way that social media could (and perhaps should) change in a new age of connections. With 1.5 million Instagram followers, join successful influencer Myla Tkachenko as we explore what works today and what’s next.
09.50 – 10.30 6G and AI – Does Humanity Have A Future?
They say technology is value-neutral, and it’s how you use it that matters. While some people are excited by what emerging tech can bring, many are worried by its potential to do great harm. Can we build these new technologies in a way that makes them ethical? And whose ethics – that of the man on the street or the billionaire banker?
