AI and 5G Draw Tech’s New Battle Lines


Technology and Innovation Series


Registration 12:15pm
Luncheon 12:30pm
Close 2:00pm

The 5G network buildout is one of the largest infrastructure projects ever and the most important technology race of the next five years. 13D has been studying the implications of 5G wireless, as it will likely determine the winners of the 21st century. Since 2012, 13D has made a case that advancing technologies will disrupt the $10 trillion global manufacturing sector. 5G wireless networks will be the connective tissue to run the next-generation applications leveraging AI, augmented reality, IoT, blockchain and 3D printers, among other critical technologies. Please join 13D’s senior disruptive technology analyst Woodley Preucil on how AI and 5G are drawing new battle lines in tech supremacy, the 5G rollout and implications, including escalating tensions between China and the United States, why 5G will be one of the major investment themes in a generation and how disruptive technology is impacting industries and sectors. 

Woodley Preucil

Woodley Preucil has been with 13D Global Strategy & Research, an independent research firm, for over 30 years. His main areas of expertise are technology and security, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, block chain, machine learning and 5G. Mr. Preucil has been instrumental in driving the growth of 13D for three decades, being actively involved in the identification, development and analysis of many of the firm’s core investment themes, primarily focusing on how disruptive technologies are helping provide solutions to economic problems and transforming industries through the Law of Accelerating Returns and Joseph Schumpeter’s Gales of Creative Destruction. In 2010, he advised then President of Colombia Alvaro Uribe Velez and his team on how to digitize the nation’s economy, capitalize on accelerating technology change and leverage the nation’s fertile farmland to help meet the world’s growing food demand. Mr. Preucil holds a B.A. in Economics and Accounting from Ohio Wesleyan University, and is a member of the New York Society of Security Analysts and the CFA Institute.

President’s Circle luncheons are off-the-record and kept small to facilitate greater discussion.
