The mobile ecosystem is forecast to grow by $1.1 trillion between 2012 and 2020 driven by network technology evolution, smartphone penetration and service innovation.

Dr. Hyunmi Yang will explain how mathematics is a fundamental enabler for growth at each stage of the mobile telecoms value chain – from designing networks to using data analytics underpinning new business models – and how her background in Applied Mathematics led her to become the first female ICT executive in Korea and now Chief Strategy Officer of the GSMA, the association for the global telecoms industry.
