Do We Still Need the FCC? Darpa's Spectrum Collaboration Challenge

In this episode, Paul Tilghman, DARPA program manager, speaks to the three-year-long Spectrum Collaboration Challenge that attempts to answer the question, Do we still need the FCC? DARPA, the United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, gamified a system to handle Dynamic Spectrum Sharing through the creation of SDN radios using the power of artificial intelligence and collaborative autonomy to navigate, share and optimize wireless spectrum in a testbed called Colosseum, and invited the world to compete. The live championship event takes place on October 23 at Mobile World Congress LA, and will be live-streamed.
