AI-enabled Wireless Networks

Future wireless networks are expected to support a multitude of services demanded by Enhanced
Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable and Low-latency Communications (uRLLC), and massive
Machine Type Communications (mMTC) users. Heterogeneous devices with different quality of service
(QoS) demands will require intelligent and flexible allocation of network resources in response to
network dynamics. To meet these demands, future wireless networks must incorporate a paradigm shift
in network resource optimization, in which efficient and intelligent resource management techniques
are employed. Artificial intelligence, or more specifically machine learning algorithms stand as promising
tools to intelligently manage the networks such that network efficiency, reliability, robustness goals are
achieved and QoS demands of users are satisfied. In this talk, we will provide an overview of the state-
of-art in machine learning algorithms and their applications to wireless networks, in addition to their
challenges and the open issues in terms of their applicability to various functions of future wireless
