Juho Lee, Samsung

Juho Lee is currently a Fellow (technical SVP) with Samsung Electronics, where he is leading research and standardization for mobile communications. He joined Samsung Electronics in 2000 and has worked on 3G, 4G, and 5G technologies and is leading research for future technologies such as beyond 5G and 6G. He was a vice chairman of 3GPP RAN WG1 from February 2003 to August 2009 and chaired LTE/LTE-Advanced MIMO sessions. He also served as the rapporteur of the work item for specifying CoMP in 3GPP LTE-Advanced Rel-11. Dr. Lee is a Fellow of IEEE. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Korea, in 1993, 1995, and 2000, respectively. 

Challenges and Evolution of Next Generation Communications

In next 10 years, the main consumer of wireless communications will be changed from human to intelligient machines that have almost no limitation on its sensing capability. 6G, the next generation wireless communications technology, needs to be designed considering such change while providing enhanced performance for human users that overcomes limited computing performance and battery capability of user equipments with various form-factors. In this talk, we will explore evolution of communication systems and its main driver from 1G to 6G, example 6G services and candidate enabling technologies of 6G. We also present some research challenges for new spectrum and spectrum sharing for 6G, and convergence between computing/AI and 6G communications.
