February 22, 2018

As digital technology including AI and IoT evolves and its range of applications expands, the world has recently seen an acceleration of digital transformation that makes maximal use of digitalization to create new processes and business models. In many countries, joint initiatives of public and private sectors for innovation have begun under national strategies that aim for industrial and social transformation through digital technology. Amid these developments, national governments have been preparing for the 5G (5th generation mobile communication systems) as a digital strategy.
