in a 5G World
In partnership with Fast Company for the Fast Company Innovation Festival, FIT hosted a Fast Track session on how technologies such as 5G wireless systems are transforming the areas of art exhibition, fashion design, retailing, and more. Following an introduction by President Joyce F. Brown, guests joined in on a deep-dive discussion featuring FIT thought leaders and an industry representative from Verizon. The panel focused on 5G’s effect on artificial intelligence, data analytics, user experience, and digital and store-based retailing.
The centerpiece of the Fast Company Innovation Festival is a series of Fast Tracks, panels and workshop sessions that take place in compelling workplaces and innovative spaces throughout the city of New York. Fast Tracks are intimate, in-depth experiential sessions (usually 90 minutes in length) hosted by companies and leaders at their offices or other workspaces in New York City. FIT was the only academic institution to host such a session for the festival.
