5G & 6G Spectrum Tutorial

Today, I co-delivered a unique tutorial on U.S and global 5G and 6G spectrum challenges, in Washington DC. My co-speakers were veterans in all things spectrum: Charles Cooper (NTIA), Monisha Ghosh (former CTO FCC) and Ira Keltz (FCC).

Spectrum is the lifeblood of telecoms. If you work on 5G/6G (not only spectrum!) and are in industry, academia or government, you really should check out the tutorial slides “Riding the New Wave: Spectrum Strategies for the 5G and 6G Era”.

Here the outline of the tutorial:
1. Introduction by Mischa: Kickstart the tutorial with an overview of key spectrum challenges and opportunities.
2. Overview of Spectrum Landscape by Ira: Understand the evolving spectrum landscape, in the U.S. and globally.
3. 6G Spectrum Deepdive by Mischa: Delve deeper into the roadmap from 5G to 6G, focusing on technologies, spectrum needs and open research & policy challenges.
4. Coexistence & Spectrum Sharing by Monisha: Explore the cutting-edge strategies for efficient spectrum sharing.
5. US Spectrum Priorities by Charles: Learn about the current priorities and strategies shaping the contemporary U.S. spectrum policy.
6G. Conclusions and Q&A

The slides are available here, and a photo for the memory book is below.

First row to hear the vision of CEOs, founders and execs of all who matter in 2024: OpenAI, Anthropic, Reddit, LinkedIn, Meta, Bumble, Y Combinator, XBox, Snap, Figma, ARM and the White House.

๐ŸŽค Emily Chang: The Queen of Tech Talk
Emily didnโ€™t just moderate; she owned the stage! Sharp, witty, and always on point, she turned complex tech gab into โ€ฆ well โ€ฆ an actual dialogue. Who knew tech talks could be binge-worthy?

๐Ÿค– Anthropic’s Daniela Amodei & Dario Amodei:
Anthropic siblingsโ€™ mantra? Trust systems, not people. 100% excited & 100% scared of AGI – 200% committed!

๐Ÿš€ Adam Neumann: From WeWork to Flow
Adam shared the secret sauce to leadership: Speak last, think first – apparently advice from Bezos himself. Also, his journey from WeWork to Flow is like switching from decaf to espresso – same coffee shop, different buzz!

๐Ÿ” Anne Neuberger: Refreshingly Technical
Anne, straight from the White House, was given a tough time on stage but she took it like a champion! Her views: cyber offense easier than defense; thus, lock digital doors in critical infra + bring industry communities together. Encrypted health data should be a no-brainer, right?

๐Ÿ’ก Vinod Khosla: Free AI for all Americans – wow
Vinodโ€™s throwing free AI healthcare parties and everyoneโ€™s invited! His vision? An AI doctor for all and AI tutor for every kid. Move over, human teachers? BTW, open-sourcing Llama was a bad idea.

๐Ÿ‘พ Steve Huffman: Finding the Middle Path
Steveโ€™s in the Reddit driver’s seat, steering between open info highways and user safety guardrails. And heโ€™s translating the Reddit universe into French and Spanish – au revoir language barriers!

๐ŸŒ Reid Hoffman: Real and AI-Fake Reid
Reid (founder LinkedIn) keeps it 100 with internet safety and AIโ€™s open-source debates. His motto: Keep pedaling the innovation bike, but donโ€™t forget to wear your helmet!

๐ŸŽฌ Brad Lightcap: AI in Hollywood
OpenAI got AI ready for its Hollywood close-up. Forget about AI taking our jobs; it’s here to direct blockbusters. Lights, camera, AI action!

๐ŸŽฎ Sarah Bond: Game On!
Sarah’s launching a mobile game store in July – cloud gamingโ€™s getting hotter, and sheโ€™s serving up AAA games and of the year.

๐Ÿ‘ฆ Snap’s Evan Spiegel: The Kids are Alright
Evan’s keeping Snap snappy and safe for kids, proving tech giants can have a big heart too. Four boys at home? Thatโ€™s the real leadership training ground!

๐ŸŽ‰ Wrap Up
Still reeling from all the insights and inspirations. Thanks, Bloomberg, for this techstravaganza. Can’t wait to see how all these visions unfold into our digital tomorrow!

Last but really not least, I was impressed how you managed stage diversity – kudos!
