Artificial Intelligence in Wireless Networks

Course 080 Artificial Intelligence in Wireless Networks

By increasing the density and number of different functionalities in wireless networks there is more and more need for the use of artificial intelligence for planning the network deployment, running their optimization and dynamically controlling their operation.

Machine learning algorithms are used for the prediction of traffic and network state in order to timely reserve resources for smooth communication with high reliability and low latency. Big data mining is used to predict customer behaviour and timely pre-distribute (cashing) the information content across the network so that it can be efficiently delivered as soon as requested.

Intelligent agents can search the internet on behalf of the customer in order to find the best options when it comes to buying any product on line

The course covers a review of AI based learning algorithms with a number of case studies supported by Python and R programs.

It provides a discussion of the learning algorithms used in decision making based on game theory and a number of specific applications in wireless networks such as channel, network state and traffic prediction

Globalcomm/Institute for Networking Sciences

 

Mission of the Institute

The Institute is non profit organization  engaged in the research and education that will set up foundation to the modelling of complex systems sometimes referred to as system of systems or what we like to call InSyNETs (Inter System Networking). In our community and in Europe in general there is a support for such approach and the calls for project applications become more and more multidisciplinary. Calls like Smart Cities, Low Carbon Environment, Energy Efficiency… require coordinated integration of the methodologies from communications/networking, computer sciences, control theory, artificial intelligence, energy sector, economics, industrial process engineering, transportations….. This mission is reflected in the organizational structure of the Institute and in our research programs. Consequently, we also provide educational programs to support our research, which are not available on conventional universities.

InSyNET: Inter System Networking

 

InSyNET: Inter System Networking

The advanced Large Area Industrial Processes nowadays include a number of different components (systems) that jointly optimize the production process. Examples are: Energy production where the energy sources are incorporated into a system that uses different supporting systems for its optimization, such as communications (IoT), artificial intelligence for different learning mechanisms to predict weather and energy consumption, big data etc.  Another example is a distributed collision avoidance algorithm for multiple dynamic vehicles moving in arbitrary dimensions. INS is doing research in the field of distributed intelligence and joint optimization of system of systems  

Manufacturing Network Organization

Nowadays more than 50% of manufacturing companies worldwide are outsourcing activities that are not considered their core competencies. The motivation for outsourcing is to reduce production costs, intensify the focus on customer relations, making company reconfiguration more nimble and accessing management expertise that is not available internally. The aim of manufacturing network is to form the best collaborative networked organization of small manufacturers to optimize a production plan. The research methodology employed involves techniques such as interaction protocol development, ontology engineering, and principles from concepts such as the contract net protocol, the product-resource-order-staff-architecture, the auctioning process, agent-based modeling, and rule-based programming. INS is actively involved in the research in this field.

NS Networking Sciences

Network Science is an academic field which studies complex networks such as telecommunication networks, computer networks, biological networks, cognitive and semantic networks, and social networks, considering distinct elements or actors represented by nodes (or vertices) and the connections between the elements or actors as links (or edges). The field draws on theories and methods including graph theory from mathematics, statistical mechanics from physics, data mining and information visualization from computer science, inferential modeling from statistics, and social structure from sociology. The United States National Research Council defines network science as “the study of network representations of physical, biological, and social phenomena leading to predictive models of these phenomena.” INS is actively involved in research in this filed.

AI Artificial Intelligence in Networks

 

Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligence, MI) is apparently intelligent behavior by machines, rather than the natural intelligence (NI) of humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of “intelligent agents“: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”. Capabilities generally classified as AI as of 2017 include successfully understanding human speech, competing at a high level in strategic game systems, autonomous cars, intelligent routing in content delivery networks, military simulations, and interpreting complex data. INSs interest is in the field of AI applications in Network control and design.

Big Data is data sets that are so voluminous and complex that traditional data processing application software are inadequate to deal with them. Big data challenges include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating and information privacy. There are three dimensions to big data known as Volume, Variety and Velocity. Lately, the term “big data” tends to refer to the use of predictive analytics, user behavior analytics, or certain other advanced data analytics methods that extract value from data, and seldom to a particular size of data set. “There is little doubt that the quantities of data now available are indeed large, but that’s not the most relevant characteristic of this new data ecosystem.” Analysis of data sets can find new correlations to “spot business trends, prevent diseases, combat crime and so on.” Scientists, business executives, practitioners of medicine, advertising and governments alike regularly meet difficulties with large data-sets in areas including Internet search, urban informatics, and business informatics. Scientists encounter limitations in e-Science work, including meteorology, genomics, connectomics, complex physics simulations, biology and environmental research. Data sets grow rapidly – in part because they are increasingly gathered by cheap and numerous information-sensing Internet of things devices such as mobile devices, aerial (remote sensing), software logs, cameras, microphones, radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers and wireless sensor networks. The world’s technological per-capita capacity to store information has roughly doubled every 40 months since the 1980s; as of 2012], every day 2.5 exabytes (2.5×1018) of data are generated. By 2025, IDC predicts there will be 163 zettabytes of data. One question for large enterprises is determining who should own big-data initiatives that affect the entire organization.

Relational database management systems and desktop statistics- and visualization-packages often have difficulty handling big data. The work may require “massively parallel software running on tens, hundreds, or even thousands of servers”. What counts as “big data” varies depending on the capabilities of the users and their tools, and expanding capabilities make big data a moving target. “For some organizations, facing hundreds of gigabytes of data for the first time may trigger a need to reconsider data management options. For others, it may take tens or hundreds of terabytes before data size becomes a significant consideration.”

INS has developed a number off line learning algorithms using big data.

Bio Networks

A biological network is any network that applies to biological systems. A network is any system with sub-units that are linked into a whole, such as species units linked into a whole food web. Biological networks provide a mathematical representation of connections found in ecological, evolutionary, and physiological studies, such as neural networks. The analysis of biological networks with respect to human diseases has led to the field of network medicine. INS is applying the results and methodologies from this field to communication networks and Internet.

T networks (transportation)

T networks (transportation)

In graph theory, a flow network (also known as a transportation network) is a directed graph where each edge has a capacity and each edge receives a flow. The amount of flow on an edge cannot exceed the capacity of the edge. Often in operations research, a directed graph is called a network, the vertices are called nodes and the edges are called arcs. A flow must satisfy the restriction that the amount of flow into a node equals the amount of flow out of it, unless it is a source, which has only outgoing flow, or sink, which has only incoming flow. A network can be used to model traffic in a road system, circulation with demands, fluids in pipes, currents in an electrical circuit, or anything similar in which something travels through a network of nodes. NSI is applying analogies and results from communication networks design and analysis to transportation networks.
