About The Event:
“Speed of Thought” a documentary directed by Emmy-Award winning documentarian, Mila Aung-Thwin, explores how Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband will improve how we live, work and play. The film gives viewers an inside look at how visionaries are using advanced connectivity to tackle some of society’s biggest challenges and working on solutions that put humanity at the center of this next chapter of innovation.

From a robotic medical device that could enable doctors to perform minimally invasive heart interventions on patients thousands of miles away, to a mask that could someday allow firefighters to see through smoke, and an augmented reality learning experience that immerses students in the history of civil rights, each story within the film focuses on passionate creators exploring ways 5G will make us smarter, safer, and more compassionate.
