This IDC Market Note presents our view on messages related to artificial intelligence (AI) at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) held in Barcelona on February 26–29, 2018. While the show was dominated by 5G, AI was clearly a significant theme across telco vendors, operators, and device makers.
"AI is still in its very early days within telecoms, as in most industries, and companies are still learning how to talk about it," said James Eibisch, research director, IDC EMEA Telco 2025 and European Cognitive/AI research practices. "The revolutionary potential of AI still lies ahead."
