Topic:

The Cell Phone is Transforming Humanity

Abstract: Most of the people in the world now use cell phones and most of them are benefitting. But the cell phone as we know it today almost didn’t happen. Martin Cooper will talk about the regulatory battle between the largest company in the world and an upstart company that refused to yield to monopoly power. Mr. Cooper will relate how applications in emerging countries are presaging enhancements in cell phone technology that promise to revolutionize education, healthcare, and collaboration. He will offer his prediction of how the cell phone will evolve in the future from a flawed technology to valuable enhancement of human progress.

Agenda

Awards, Outgoing Officers, New Officers, Major Milestones, Keynote Speaker

Martin Cooper Has been a member of the IEEE and its predecessor for over seventy years. He is a life member, was awarded the Centennial medal and the Ibuka Consumer Electrics award and was president of the Vehicular Technology society.

He is a member of the National Academy of engineering and a recent of its Charles Draper Award.

Cooper is a Marconi Society Fellow, a Prince of Asturias Laureate, and has received numerous other recognitions over his 70-year career as an engineer, entrepreneur and executive. He is a patentee of the first handheld portable cell phone system and introduce the first cell phone in 1973. He is widely published on subjects related to wireless communication and formulated the Law of Spectrum Capacity, which he readily admits is not a law at all but that is supported by over 120 years of experience.

 

He is a member of the FCC Technology Advisory Council. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Illinois Institute of Technology and is a life member of its Board of Trustees. He has honorary degrees from that university and three others.

Marty is a friend who has, in my opinion, earned the title “The Father of the Cell Phone.

Last month, Marty launched his book Cutting the Cord: The Cell Phone Has Transformed Humanity, which is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and elsewhere. Each of our awardees today will receive a signed and personalized copy of his book.
