Things such as being able to perform Tele-Surgery where surgeons in one country can operate on people thousands of miles away using 5G and robotics to revolutionise the healthcare industry – something alone that could save over 50 million lives a year and help a further 140 million people who today don’t have access to surgeons or surgical facilities. Or being able to control drone construction equipment to build buildings thousands of miles away as we saw with Doosan in Germany.

All of which is just the tip of the iceberg and you can read all about these and many other amazing use cases in the article:
