In a world where predicting the future is crucial, artificial intelligence (AI) plays a pivotal role. However, in order for AI to expand its capabilities, new networking technology is needed. Enter Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN), a communication infrastructure that uses optical and photonic technologies to deliver ultra-high-capacity, ultra-low-latency, and ultra-low-power communications. IOWN will enable AI systems to process vast amounts of information and enhance their interactions.

Large language models (LLMs) are another area of AI that is rapidly evolving. LLMs enable AI to understand and generate everyday human language, but they still have challenges to overcome, such as learning biases from training data and difficulty in collaborating seamlessly with humans. NTT, a technology company, is developing its own LLM called ‘tsuzumi’ with an energy-efficient design and language processing capabilities.

NTT’s goal is to develop an AI cognitive engine that can collaborate naturally with people and contribute to societal and individual well-being. They are currently developing models and software robots that can interpret language, respond to questions based on images, and engage in interactive collaboration with humans. IOWN will be instrumental in enabling these advancements by connecting vast volumes of data generated by people, devices, sensors, and the digital world.
