Abstract

Past few years have witnessed the exploding growth of various systems and applications, such as the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, smart cities, and smart healthcare. Such systems and applications make our future wireless communication and networking much complex, i.e., suffering not only the curse of the dimension but also the curse of modeling. As a consequence, it is very challenging to employ conventional methods to model and optimize the wireless communication and networking. This dilemma can be exacerbated due to the natural dynamics of wireless communication environments, as traditional methods cannot catch up the dynamics promptly. Therefore, our research group investigates how to adopt AI technologies to explore data-driven methodologies to address issues in future wireless communication and networking. To be more specific, this talk focuses on how to design a learning model for spectrum availability prediction, one of the most fundamental and important research problems in future wireless communication and networking.
