Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP – JDSupraThis article addresses some of the many ways 6G will overhaul technological development, highlighting five areas of potential legal interest: Artificial intelligence, spectrum use, health care, infrastructure, and privacy. Any party in the distribution chain, from manufacturers, to hospitals, to doctors, needs to beware this potential tidal wave of liability, securing liability insurance at the very least. IV. 6G technology will usher in a revolution in innovation, unleashing artificial intelligence, revolutionizing the health care and data-transmission sectors, and creating never-before-seen privacy issues. The presence of two regulatory agencies can have downsides for industry, as agencies can fight over territory, credit, and decision-making authority. Quantum computing very generally involves computers that embrace uncertainty in the way they perform computations (as opposed to traditional computers, which reduce calculations to deterministic, binary, on-off switches). 6G offers the potential for transmission speeds 100 times greater than 5G, near-zero latency, and connection density as high as 10 million devices per square kilometer. The California Consumer Privacy Act, enacted in 2018, assesses fines at $750 per breach per consumer per incident, or actual damages.
