Cloud gaming: The tech behind it is going to school and to work

With the rise of 5G and other enabling technologies, cloud gaming is finally coming into its own, and it’s bringing in a new generation into gaming. However, the concepts that fuel gaming in the cloud can also be very beneficial to groups other than gamers. In this episode, David Linthicum and tech influencer Evan Kirstel discuss how the technologies that enable cloud gaming—cloud, 5G, AI, spatial computing, and a host of others—can also power new methods of learning and working. Evan’s vision of the future—and it’s not that far off—is one in which 5G will decrease latency issues to almost nil and people can reap the rich benefits of immersive technologies in school, at work, and at home.
