WS2: Workshop on Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Enabled Future Networks: A Cross-layer Perspective

14 October 2022 // 14:00 – 15:30 // Virtual



The demand for Data Transfer Rate is rising due to the increase of Data Traffic over time, which urges us to enhance the network systems capabilities from 4G to 5G. However, recently these demands have increased exponentially, and we need to develop a more robust physical network infrastructure to ensure enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), and security with dynamic, adaptive, and self-learning AI systems for upcoming Beyond 5G (B5G) and 6G.

B5G and 6G may bring enormous challenges because of several aspects, such as superior sensitivity, spectrum management, architectural design, network complexity, heterogeneity enhancement, trustworthiness, resource management, application possibilities, energy management, etc. Consequently, it is essential to develop a robust pathway exploiting currently available facilities, physical networks instrument, devices, Cross-layering aspects, and AI techniques to ensure a sustainable B5G/6G for the future. Therefore, we aim to organize a workshop on AI-enabled Future Networks: A Cross-layer Perspective, where the respected academician, researcher, entrepreneur, industrial practitioners, governmental agencies, and many others may share their innovations, individual thoughts, propositions, latest finding, technical challenges, open research scope, potential application scope, solutions as theories, algorithms, key technologies and so on.

Talk Title: A Roadmap for AI-enablement for Future Networks

Short Bio: Prof. Mohammad Patwary is Full Professor of Telecommunications & Director of Centre for Future Networks & Autonomous Systems (CeFNAS) at the Faculty of Science & Engineering in University of Wolverhampton since June 2020. He is also research lead for ‘5G Connected Forest Project’ funded by DCMS that aims at accelerating ‘visitor economy’ in Midlands. Hewas a full Professor of telecommunication networks and digital productivity and the Head of the Intelligent Systems and Networks (ISN) Research Group, at School of Computing and Digital Technology, Birmingham City University, UK, between 2017 till 2020; he was also the Principal Architect for a large scale 5G testbed in the UK to accelerate digital productivity and to develop urban connected community with West Midland 5G during 2018-2020. He was also a Full Professor of wireless systems and digital productivity & the Chair of the Centre of Excellence on Digital Productivity with Connected Services, Staffordshire University, until 2017. His current research interests include intelligent & autonomous systems, wireless communication systems design and optimization, the future generation of cellular network architecture, and business modeling for data-economy. He is Chartered Engineer of Engineering-Council UK, Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of IET, and co-chair of Testbed working group of International Network Generation Roadmap at IEEE.
