Watch or listen to the first Sparring Partner videocast on how wireless technology can help us with the current and future epidemics, with Terry Schussler, Deutsche Telekom, Chris Nicoll, Nicoll Associates, and Monica Paolini, Senza Fili. We talked about how virtual reality, augmented reality and extended reality can give us a deeper view into the world in front of us or away from us, and help us deal with unpredicted emergency situations.
Sparring Partners are videocasts that are unscripted, and open to real-time participation from the audience through a chat line, for questions and comments.
#WirelessFightsCOVID is a series of pro-bono videocasts. Any fees we may receive will be acknowledged and donated to charity. We intend to open a discussion on the long-term implications of the pandemic for wireless technologies, and not on vendor-specific solutions. How can wireless help us manage this and future epidemics, as well as other unpredictable emergencies? How will wireless adapt to long-term changes in the way we use and need connectivity? How does regulation need to change to enable these changes?

We also discussed the privacy implications of contact tracing, following up on the Apple and Google announcement about their collaboration on a Bluetooth-based protocol to be used in contact tracing apps. For more about contact tracing, check out the European Union guidance document released on the same day of our Sparring Partners and the joint statement on contact tracing signed by 300 researchers.
