Earlier this month, we joined hundreds of tech enthusiasts at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, the world's largest annual exhibition for the mobile industry. As always, the event featured top mobile operators, manufacturers, technology providers and vendors.
Lately, I have read several contradictory articles on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Some have trepidation that machines will replace human, others predict that technology is here to work for us and not against us. Both frontiers have their own valid arguments, fostered by numbers and statistics, some which are difficult to negate.

Her, the 2014 winner of the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, depicts a romantic relationship between a loner and his charming advanced operating system (OS).

The billing system-also known as the business support system-is a vital tool for communications service providers. The system bills end customers and manages payments to service providers. Having an efficient, feature-rich and “smart” system is essential as technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Internet of Things (IoT) and Advanced Analytics become more pervasive.
The network is the bedrock of nearly every significant innovation that we see around us. For example, the high-speed 4G network is making self-driving cars a reality, one of the biggest innovations of this era. A Deloitte report estimates that self-driving cars, enabled by wireless connectivity, will reduce emissions by 40% to 90%, travel times by nearly 40%, and delays by 20%. A 2013 study estimated that if 90% of vehicles were autonomous, it would save 21,700 lives and $447 billion per year.
