5G and XR: Removing Distance

As 5G networks begin to be rolled out across the world, this is a timely event which will examine the unprecedented opportunities and transformation of industries and businesses due to advancements in 5G and Extended Reality (XR). Codex will bring together leaders from industry who are uniquely positioned to showcase the latest advances in 5G and XR and how they might interface with one another, whilst also providing commercial applications and actionable insights for these disruptive technologies.

The format will be a series of Codex Talks. A Codex Talk is a concise presentation, lasting 15 minutes (or less), in which the speaker addresses a challenging question faced by their technology or industry today and ends with a bold prediction for the future.

Codex Talks are engaging, entertaining and elucidating. They give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.
