The IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. It consists of a full week of events, including technical paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials, as well as numerous social events and networking opportunities. As the Keynote speaker at this year's Symposium, IEEE and Matter Communications contacted "The Father of the Cellphone," Dr. Martin Cooper, to promote the Symposium and provide context to his Keynote via video.
The handheld cell phone was introduced 42 years ago but the modern smart phone is less than 10 years old. Marty Cooper maintains that, although the phone contains amazing semiconductor and other technologies, the phone itself is still in its infancy. Personal wireless connectivity has the potential to revolutionize health care and education; the health care revolution has already begun. But the biggest contribution pf wireless with be in improving the very concept of collaboration. Marty points out the irony that the ability to solve the many problems associated with these revolutions may well be enhanced by collaborative tools that use wireless technology to improve itself.
