Wireless communication is the most common form of communication in the modern day and age and it is defined, according to the editors at, “system using radio-frequency, infrared, microwave, or other types of electromagnetic or acoustic waves in place of wires, cables, or fiber optics to transmit signals or data. Wireless devices include cell phones, two-way radios, remote garage-door openers, television remote controls, and GPS (Global Positioning System) receivers.”

Since the dawn of wireless communication, it has been spreading like a wildfire that cannot be extinguished. It is used in almost every aspect of academia. According to the first citation, wireless communication devised in 1897 by Guglielmo Marconi, who was also awarded a patent for the wireless telegraph. Ever since then, wireless communicational systems have been increasing at an exponential rate. According to, the number of mobile cellular subscriptions from 1993 to 2017, in millions, is 7.74 bn. And it does continue to advance each passing day. We shall overlook the modern advancement and/or experiment that are or have been conducted to improve wireless communication even more. ‘You’ll never reach perfection because there’s always room for improvement. Yet get along the way to perfection, you’ll learn to get better.’ – Hlovate.

Various numbers of latest scientific advancements in the department of wireless communication were created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or more commonly referred to as MIT. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, or know commonly as M.I.T, is one of the top Ivy League schools in the United States. They “Research at MIT aims to develop innovative solutions to the world’s most daunting challenges. From addressing the energy needs of tomorrow to improving cancer therapies”. One such innovation that was created by MIT, according to the sixth citation, was the ability to break the inconspicuous water/air barrier. On Aug 21, 2018, “MIT researchers have taken a step toward solving a longstanding challenge with wireless communication: direct data transmission between underwater and airborne devices”. Wireless communication breaks through the water-air barrier. There is no name given to the system yet, and how it works. According to the sixth citation, example use-cases would be “military submarines, for instance, wouldn’t need to surface to communicate with airplanes, compromising their location. And underwater drones that monitor marine life wouldn’t need to constantly resurface from deep dives to send data to researchers… Another promising application is aiding searches for planes that go missing underwater”. This allows us to save time communicating from redirecting from a tower to the intended target with worrying that the invisible air-water barrier will block the communications out or ingoing to the underwater vehicle.

Another innovation created by MIT, according to the eighth source, is “In-Body Gps” or referred to as the “ReMix”. On Aug 20, 2018, “Scientists have developed a system that can pinpoint the location of ingestible implants inside the body using low-power wireless signals”. “With a small marker like ReMix’s, doctors could better determine the location of a tumor in real-time and be able to either pause the treatment or steer the beam into the right position to deal with the movement.” This would help to improve the positioning of tumor and/or disease in the Human body, but there is one downside: “To be clear, ReMix is not yet accurate enough to be used in clinical settings – Katabi says a margin of error closer to a couple of millimeters would be necessary for actual implementation.”

Another major source of scientific innovation/improvement in the field of wireless communication is Stanford Univ., located Stanford, California. The innovation that was created by Stanford Univ, on February 14, 2011, is a wireless communication system that allows two-way wireless communication. “A new technology that allows wireless signals to be sent and received simultaneously on a single channel has been developed by Stanford researchers. Their research could help build faster, more efficient communication networks, at least doubling the speed of existing networks.” This could improve air traffic communication between multiple aircraft.

The third faction that has taken an interest in the scientific innovation/improvement of Wireless Communication is The United States Department of Defense or referred to as the DOD. According to the Wikipedia, “The Department of Defense is an executive branch department of the federal government of the United States charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government concerned directly with national security and the United States Armed Forces”. The only suggestions that I have for you are your use of the citations should reflect the sentences that you are writing afterward because they show bias through the words that are reflecting afterward, because it shows it shows too much bias, otherwise the only thing is vocabulary could improve. You should address the questions that you are asking throughout your paragraphs. In your first paragraph is MIT supposed to be its own sentence or was there went to be a comma. You should do more of an explanation for some parts rather than just one source after another. I can tell what your lens is but you should explain how it has to do with your topic more.

So far, I’ve only said the positives of Wireless communications, but what about the negatives? Wireless communication has a lot of negatives like it could be hacked, could be tracked, could be collected, basically, it is the advanced version of espionage.
