Abstract: Today’s fixed, mobile and things Internets allow us to transmit files, voice and video across the planet. With the emergence of an ultra-responsive & reliable Tactile Internet, advanced techniques in robotics and artificial intelligence, we predict the emergence of an Internet of Skills which allows the transmission of labor globally. It will invoke an important shift from content-delivery to skillset-delivery networks, where engineers would service cars or surgeons performing critical operations anywhere on the planet. For this to work however we require some fundamental laws of physics to be “reengineered”. This talk is all about the disruptive technology approaches which will allow us to break through this next tech frontier. L’internet (fixe, mobile et objets) d’’aujourd'hui nous permet de transmettre des fichiers, voix et vidéo à travers la planète. Avec l’émergence d'un Internet tactile ultra-sensible et fiable, des techniques avancées en robotique et en intelligence artificielle, nous prédisons l'émergence d'un Internet de compétences qui permet la transmission du travail à l'échelle mondiale. Il appellera un changement important de la livraison de contenu à des réseaux de compétences-livraison, où les ingénieurs desserviraient des voitures ou des chirurgiens effectuant des opérations critiques partout sur la planète. Pour que cela fonctionne cependant, nous avons besoin de revisiter certaines lois fondamentales de la physique. Ce discours porte sur les approches technologiques perturbatrices qui nous permettront de franchir cette prochaine frontière technologique.
