Nine Communications Technology Trends for 2020

The CTN Editorial Board, having just returned from the IEEE Communications Society yearly meditation and yoga retreat, is now feeling sufficiently enlightened to give you our annual list of hot topics for the communications industry. As always we would like to add the caveat that, though we have stared deeply into the sole of the universe, and managed to maintain a handstand scorpion for several minutes, we are just engineers and no amount of self-denial can provide clarity on why Machine Learning is so insanely popular. We nevertheless hope our list provides you with some level of inner peace. As always we welcome your feedback.
