Abstract:  Imagine a world where the digital, physical and human seamlessly fuse to trigger extrasensory experiences. An era in which intelligent knowledge systems combined with robust computation capabilities make humans endlessly more efficient and redefine how we live, work, and take care of the planet. The future of connectivity then is in the creation of digital twin worlds that are a true representation of the physical and human worlds at every spatial and time instant. New themes are likely to emerge that will shape 6G system requirements and technologies. With rapid advances in artificial intelligence, it has the potential to become the foundation for the 6G air interface and network, making data, compute and energy the new resources to be exploited for achieving superior performance. We will also discuss opportunities and challenges of some other technology transformations in the journey from 5G to 6G such as joint communication and sensing, sub-Thz system design,  scalable extreme MIMO, and new network architecture.

Bio:  Harish Viswanathan is Head of Radio Systems Research Group in Nokia Bell Labs. He received the B. Tech. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, India and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. Since joining Bell Labs in October 1997, he has worked extensively on wireless research ranging from physical layer to network architecture and protocols including multiple antenna technology for cellular wireless networks, multi-hop relays, network optimization, network architecture, and IoT communications. He has published extensively with over 100 publications. From 2007 to 2015, Harish was in the Corp CTO organization, where as a CTO Partner he advised the Corporate CTO on Technology Strategy through in-depth analysis of emerging technology and market needs. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Bell Labs Fellow.
