SK Telecom to Showcase New AI Technologies at MWC Barcelona 2024


SK Telecom has announced that it will participate in the upcoming Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2024 (MWC 2024) kicking off on the 26th of February 26 in Barcelona, Spain. There, the company will showcase a range of future technologies driven by innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI), including communication services, network infrastructure, and real-world applications.

SKT, which continues to transform itself into a global AI company, is set to occupy a 992㎡exhibition area situated at the heart of Hall 3 in Fira Gran Via, the primary convention venue for MWC 2024. Here, the company will present telco-centric AI technologies under the theme “AI, on the Point of Inflection.”

The central focus of the exhibition will be telco-specific large language models (LLMs). The exhibition will shed light on SKT’s efforts to develop LLMs tailored for teleco business that can also be leveraged across diverse applications, with the ultimate goal of maximising their effectiveness for both service providers and customers.
