CTN’s 2022 and 2023 Retrospective and Predictions

As it is now tradition at CTN we are venturing into the world of the magic 8 ball to see if the famous fortune teller toy can help us predict some of the communications trends that will see increased attention or become reality in 2023.   We have also tried to score ourselves on our 2022 predictions, and to an extent created other predictions while at it.   As we tried to come up with this year’s set we struggled, we could have taken the easy way out and just predict the obvious or we could have taken a less traveled path and predict obscure technologies, trends or events.  In the end we simply decided to let each member choose, so perhaps in the reader’s mind this is an amalgamation of magic ball predictions, obscure paths and some well-traveled ideas.  The fun part is to see how all of this plays out as the field of communications is full of exciting academic and industrial technologies that will continue to evolve to pave the way for better communications systems.  We look forward to 2023 and believe that this is a pivotal year in many ways, as we should start to see the maturation of 5G (as an example) and how it will help create those verticals we all have hoped for.  I just realized that the last statement is actually a prediction - so enjoy reading the rest of the selections from the editorial board.
