What will our future world look like?
There is a common belief that our future will be intelligent, and it is coming at an incredible speed. Which fundamental technologies will power our future lives?
We already have 5G for data transmission. A rapidly growing AI industry can now process data more efficiently and accurately. This requires additional high-quality data in the form of SWIR data. In the near future this will need to be captured on a massive scale.
