This is particularly important in applications that require real time communication (think:
- multiplayer video games,
- adaptive autonomous driving technology that require network connection
- and other connected AI applications).

Video games? Sure

1. Autonomous driving -- doubtful. The car has to be able to drive and be safe when there is no network otherwise it is failure, IMO.

2. Adaptive autonomous driving? If you mean the car sees and learns something new and it shares it back to the cloud -- well yes. But Tesla's already do this and you don't need low latency for this. A new datapoint is generated and it goes back to the mother ship (perhaps at the end of the day) and over many days or more is trained into the neural net model, tested, retested and regression tested to make sure it does not break old test cases before it is released back to the fleet. Otherwise hackers could create all sorts of fake data points to attempt cause havoc.

About the only things you'd want real-time sharing from a car back to the cloud would be local traffic conditions (speed), detours, etc. You don't really need low latency AI for this.

3. Other. Yes, like voice recognition.
