The Next G Alliance (NGA) today announced release of Shaping Tomorrow: The Evolution of Personalized Digital Experiences Through 6G Technologies. The white paper highlights the potential of personalized user experiences to enhance quality of life in a 6G world. Use cases in Shaping Tomorrow center around a multi-generational family set in the year 2035 to illustrate how 6G technology enablers will work.
In these real-life examples, the family’s grandfather undergoes a body scan each morning to establish his health baseline, which in turn tailors app-based health and wellness services. Online efficiency meets in-person experience for the family’s mother as she shops in a “Phygital” shopping district using a “ShopPal,” synced to her XR sunglasses. The father coordinates travel and passport information through an app that has passports delivered to his outdoor DroneBox in the nick of time for an overseas journey. Education applications provide their daughter with specialized curricula based on her skills and interests and enrich her learning through meta experiences that harness global knowledge resources efficiently. A scheduling program harmonizes each person’s varied schedules while ensuring quality family time together.
“With 6G, consumers are not simply looking for faster connections, but for wireless technologies that enable innovation that can tangibly improve quality of life,” said Next G Alliance Managing Director Mike Nawrocki. “The scenarios in Shaping Tomorrow depict how this new world is possible through highly personalized applications powered by 6G innovations now being advanced by the Next G Alliance.”
“One of the expected benefits that 6G can bring to us is authorized and personalized assistance anytime, anywhere,” said Ki-Dong Lee (LG Electronics), Chair NGA Applications Working Group. “Aligned with Next G Alliance’s goal of providing Digital World Experiences, this report explores episodes from daily life, such as healthcare, shopping, travel and education. It entails various situations where humans receive secure personalized digital experiences for assistance.”
