Over A Coffee with Alex Rogers, Executive Vice President of Qualcomm, and President of Qualcomm Technology Licensing
A recent Accenture study on the impact of 5G in the European economy reports that 5G will drive up to €2.0 trillion in additional gross output (sales) growth; and it has the potential to create or transform up to 20 million jobs across all sectors of the economy – this which includes full-time, part-time and temporary jobs. The report expects 5G will add up to nearly €1.0 trillion to the European GDP, with multiplier effects felt in every industry.
Speaking with EURACTIV’s Brian Maguire, Alex Rogers, Executive Vice President of Qualcomm, and President of Qualcomm Technology Licensing, said: “The automobile is transforming into a computer on wheels. But there’s another transformation that’s coming in. It’s enabled by connectivity… everything is connected to everything, the automobile is connected to other cars, infrastructure, pedestrians, bicyclists, there’s going to be a transformation in the way people drive… There will be a complete transformation in the automotive space, in terms of how we experience the car.”
