How We Can Help
The "internet of things" or IoT refers to the connecting of everyday objects to the internet, cloud computing platforms, and to other objects.
Communications companies around the globe are embracing AI and leveraging the capabilities of machine learning, neural networks and other emerging technology for a wide array of applications including customer care bots, targeted advertising, recommendations, predictive analytics, network management, cybersecurity, and autonomous operations.
The emergence of novel space-related technologies has not only led to the rapid evolution of the space and satellite industry, but also created unique legal, regulatory, and contractual challenges.
