Abstract: Wireless communications is one of the most advanced, and rapidly advancing, technologies of our time. New wireless applications and services emerge on an almost daily basis, and the number of users of these services is growing at an exponential rate. For example, almost half of the world’s population uses cell phones, and this is only one of a dazzling array of wireless technologies that have emerged in recent times. The implications of this phenomenon cut across many aspects of technology and society. This talk will discuss this technological landscape, some of its history and societal implications, emerging developments, and recent research advances underlying these developments.
