How 5G+AI+AR Will Create Next-Gen Protection Against Pandemics

eWEEK TREND ANALYSIS: Part of what is coming is vastly improved AR glasses. These would allow you to easily pick out and avoid anyone running a temperature, enabling you to avoid people who both have the virus and are the most viral.

eweek.com, Mar. 25, 2020 – 

I was on a call with Qualcomm today, and they were covering the advantages of the AI capabilities in their 5G solutions coming to the market. Much of the message focused on how this distributed intelligence, when tied to similar advancements with carrier equipment, would massively improve the quality and reliability of our cell phone calls. Other improvements to anticipate are significant battery life upgrades and, of course, even more massive increases in security, bandwidth and connectivity.

But, like you, I'm living in a post-Covid-19 world, and I wanted to know how this technology would keep me from getting sick.

It will do that, but much of this protection will likely not be available until the next pandemic, and given there will be a next one--likely in a few years--I thought it would be interesting to explore what is coming. I'll provide individual examples of advances and then roll them up into a solution that might make home quarantine for people that aren't sick obsolete.
