Despite the continuing truth of Moore’s Law that computing speeds double every two years, recent years have seen more evolution than revolution in computer science. Current expectations among scientists are that the relevance of Moore’s Law and this evolutionary phase are coming to an end. The methods of artificial intelligence and cyber-security will be implemented intrinsically, far more deeply, in computer architecture and operating systems, and they will be part of the revolution that is imminent.
A similar revolution can be observed in relation to communications technology. The next generation of mobile communications, 5G, is not just an incremental improvement but will bring radically new performance data and significant architectural innovations such as decentralised, distributed data processing architecture (Mobile Edge Cloud). This revolution will be further reinforced in the form of a heterogeneous communication system landscape using new broadband initiatives and the next generation of satellite communication.
