Restrictions on travel and on congregating during the COVID crisis has resulted in an explosion of the use of video conferencing for business, socializing, and education. Leveraging decades of development, video conferencing became nearly universal over the period of a few weeks. As we rely on Internet, cellular, and wireless networks to connect us, it is critical to explore upcoming challenges.
How resilient are our systems to the surge in video traffic? What pressure points may cause the system to fail? Are both technology and policy innovation needed? What can we learn from our recent experiences to improve future systems? Can we continue to reduce the distinction between video communication and face-to-face interactions? Purdue Engineering faculty and corporate leaders will discuss these questions and more in this webinar.
