In South Korea, which turned on its 5G telecom networks nationwide in April, businesses and organizations now are counting on 5G to enable the delivery of artificial intelligence (AI)-based robots, three-dimensional (3D) content, and holograms that will someday be a part of people's everyday lives.

For example, parts and service company Hyundai Mobis is building a car assistant that can drive a vehicle and interact with passengers; faster 5G networks will allow the technology to identify drivers' emotions through voice and facial recognition software.

South Korean mobile phone carriers, meanwhile, are designing AI-powered speakers that can communicate with users, with bots appearing as holograms.
