Title: AI for 5G - Research Directions and Paradigms
Abstract: The 5th generation (5G) wireless communications techniques will provide mobile networks with omnipresent and fundamental capabilities and support rapid network development. Those techniques can not only fulfill the requirement of 1000 times increase of internet traffic in the next decade, but also offer the underlying technologies to the entire industry and ecology. Compared with the existing mobile communications techniques, 5G techniques are more-widely applicable but the corresponding system design is more complicated. To this end, the resurgence of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques can offer an alternative option, which is possibly superior over traditional ideas and performance. This talk first combs through several promising directions of AI for 5G, based on the understanding of key 5G techniques. The talk then devotes itself to providing design paradigms; including 5G network optimization, optimal resource allocation, 5G physical layer unified acceleration, and end-to-end physical layer joint optimization.
Short bio: Xiao-Hu You received his Ph.D. from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in Electrical Engineering in 1988. Since 1990, he has been working with the National Mobile Communications Research Laboratory at Southeast University, where he is currently a Professor and the Director. He has contributed over 150 IEEE journal papers in the areas of signal processing and wireless communications. From 1998 to 2016, he was the Principal Expert of the 3G, 4G and 5G Research Projects under China National 863 High-Tech Program, respectively. Professor You was the General Chair for IEEE WCNC 2013 and IEEE VTC 2016. He was the recipient of the National 1st Class Invention Prize in 2011, and was selected as IEEE Fellow in same year.
