SKT, Yonsei team up to open 5G hospital in Yongin 

SK Telecom and Yonsei University have agreed to join hands to launch the nation's first digital hospital powered by a fifth-generation (5G) network. 

SK telecom said patient rooms will be equipped with the artificial intelligence (AI) smart speaker NUGU so that patients with physical difficulties can operate their beds, lighting and TV, and call for assistance using voice control. 

Using a mobile augmented reality (AR) app, patients and their "caregivers" can easily find locations in the hospital. The firm will also develop a hologram program for patients in isolation wards, so that they can "virtually" meet with visitors. 

A facial recognition system will also be used for doctors and other medical staff to enter key facilities of the hospital. The telecom firm said the system allows "contactless" entry for staff which will also help decrease the risk of infection.
