AI-based Wireless Communications

Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI), including deep neural networks, the availability of powerful computing platforms, and big data, are providing us various applications that were impossible before. AI has been also expected in wireless communications where the systems have been complex and various kinds of new applications, such as autonomous vehicles and drones, and massive internet-of-things (IoTs). In this talk, we will provide a simple overview of AI for the perspective of wireless communications and share some interesting applications.

Professor Tomoaki OHTSUKI

received the B.E., M.E., and Ph. D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Keio University, Yokohama, Japan in 1990, 1992, and 1994, respectively.
