The University of California, Berkeley is collaborating with several major technology companies in forming the 5G Innovators Initiative, which is focused on bringing technology and academia together to advance fifth-generation networks in the U.S.

Berkeley researchers will work toward transforming network infrastructure in several fields, including telecommunications, healthcare, finance, and security.

Berkeley professor Ion Stoica says the initiative's open source approach will offer interdisciplinary advantages. Stoica, director of Berkeley's RISELab, where research for the initiative will take place, notes collaborations between universities and the technology industry can help bridge gaps between software and hardware to improve long-term design. He says the initiative will help further research into autonomous driving, robotics, and virtual and augmented realities.

Intel's Asha Keddy, whose company also is participating in the project, says the 5G Innovators Initiative will combine the strengths and intellectual capital of its participants to foster future innovation.
