The world is not going to be monopolized by devices like smartphones or glasses until 6G becomes the norm. 6G is expected to reach people by the year 2030. Only one-third of the world has currently been digitized. More infrastructural work has to be done in order to bring the rest of the population “online”.
If you are wondering about 6G, then you should know that the definition of 6G is quite unclear, as the world is still reeling around the definition of 5G. It is considered to be a controversial tech that we do not know about, especially its negative points.
The CEO of Nokia added that “intelligent knowledge systems would be synchronized with flexible computation capacities to make us more efficient”. This will redefine our lives, and how we live and work, and would also take care of our planet.
“Even though there is still a lot of innovation in 5G with the 5G-Advanced release of new standards, Nokia Bell Labs has already begun the research work on 6G.”
The only question that is on people’s minds is that would it be ethical to integrate technology directly into the human body. What are the limitations? Where do we stop? Will these additions change our humanitarian aspects?
Should we allow large and often unethical corporations to have access to our bodies and biometric data?
