Thrish gave a plenary keynote speech at IEEE PIMRC, one of the leading mobile communication conferences in the World. The talk focused on how living beings survive in uncertain environments that require fast responses with a central nervous system (CNS) known to have very slow communication fibers (a signal from fingertip to brain takes about 120msec). Most rapid responses cannot be explained using such slow communication pathways.
The talk using robotic experimental evidence on the role of fast bodily computers (morphological computers) that work in conjunction with the CNS helped to challenge the conventional notion that the slow CNS is entirely responsible for intelligent behavior. This aligned well with the latest trends in 5G communication where field experts argue that some new decentralized solutions are required to go beyond the current bottlenecks. Link
