SystemX Seminar: Smart Internet Connections: Your internet connection’s use of artificial intelligence and machine learning
The next generation of internet communication has many uses for machine learning. This talk will review some of the applications for and types of 5th-generation converged software-defined communication networks, including the important access links to all users/consumers and devices/things, upon which humanity increasing and crucially depends. The general problem well addressed by communications theory is the inference from a large set of data (sometimes called a "channel" output) of a desired/intended conclusion (sometimes called the "channel input" or data "transmitted"); this is sometimes also known as "decoding." Many learning systems like search engines, detection of diseases, facial recognition, etc are all forms of this "decoding." Many of the methods for "machine learning" can be recast in this more general setting, and as well then re-used to advance further the art of next-generation communication. The talk will encourage further investigation into both the "learning" and advancement of the future networks that will increasingly connect us all. Some of these topics will be further examined in EE392AA (spring quarter), which can be used for EE MS Communications Depth sequence.
