ABSTRACT

With the advancement of Deep Learning (DL) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), extensive research is being carried out in various application domains such as image classification, speech recognition, and wireless communications. In the first part of the presentation, we propose a novel and defensive mechanism based on a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) framework to achieve robust end-to-end learning of a communications system. We utilize a generative network to model a powerful adversary and enable the end-to-end communications system to combat the generative attack network via a minimax game. In the second part, we propose a novel algorithm for allocating distributed spectrum and power resources in vehicular networks, including both vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication links. The proposed algorithm utilizes imitation learning and Graph Neural Network (GNN) to train distributed policies that adhere to the local structure of the vehicular system while imitating a centralized policy.
