Title: A New Horizon? Korea NEXT Growth Engine : A Personal Experience
In today's global economy, companies aggressively fund universities and research labs to bring in fundamental innovations. Innovation becomes a priority especially through government-industry-academia collaboration scheme as the global interconnected networks reach commercial maturity in late-1990s, when the Internet came into existence. This can only be accomplished through close-knit research and development programs.  For example, we see mobile phone is being developed into a mobile Internet. But innovations do not stop here. It will continue to grow. Why? Because the future of mobile communications still requires many technologies to be developed to handle huge data volumes. The evolution of devices through easy to use interfaces, e.g., touchscreen, has generated huge data traffic which needs to be efficiently managed. Content services via digital network have emerged, such as cloud computing, and are likely to take over as the primary way of content consumption around the world. Just like water or electricity which is readily available when moving into a new home, the basic access to content will be bundled into access to digital networks. This is already happening with the development of key technologies. In the future, it is possible that mobile telecommunication technologies will become one of the biggest innovation surges in business and private communication. This talk discuss some well funded innovations and key technologies that reflect the technological sophistication from pre-Internet era to post-Internet era and provide an overview of future research and development efforts in Korea.
