WASHINGTON, DC – What does the near future look like? That's the question CableLabs and the NCTA tried to answer at the Near Future Conference in the nation's capital this week. The idea was to show what massive bandwidth and computational power can enable, including everything from virtual, interactive models of cities to AI-powered holograms. Stay tuned for more from Light Reading on how the event turned out. But in the meantime, click through below for a visual tour.
In the future, you won't need physical models to explore and design buildings, cities or, let's say, an infrastructure deployment; you'll only need a Microsoft HoloLens and software from Taqtile. In this picture, the inset photo at bottom left shows an empty table and a gentleman about to don a HoloLens headset. The larger image shows the virtual, interactive model of a city that appears on the empty table when viewed through the HoloLens gear.

Your delivery bot has arrived It looks like there were a lot of exciting products at this convention! I'm still unsure about the real life advantages to drone delivery. What about physical security of the drone itself? Do they come equipped with sleeping gas to knock out a would-be-robber?
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
