IEEE COMSOC Distinguished Lecture | AI Based Ultra-Reliable Wireless Networked Control Systems in 6G by Professor Sinem Coleri, Koc University
Unlike previous generation networks that were mainly designed to meet the requirements of human-type communications, 5G networks enable the collection of data from the machines with the total number of devices expected to be around 26 billion in 2026 according to Ericsson Mobility Report.
The next step in 6G systems is to enable a new spectrum of control applications based on these data, such as extended reality, remote surgery, autonomous vehicle platoons.
The design of communication systems for control applications requires meeting the strict delay and reliability requirements of communication systems, addressing the semantics of the control systems and achieving robustness in resource management.
In the first part of this talk, ultra-reliable channel modelling and communication techniques are presented for the joint design of control and communication systems based on extreme value theory and artificial intelligence (AI). AI enables predicting the channel parameters with higher accuracy while incorporating various system inputs and providing adaptivity to time-varying scenarios at high frequency bands, including THz, optical and mmwave communication.
In the second part of the talk, the importance and means of achieving explainability and robustness are presented for AI based radio resource management in 6G networks. The usage of explainable and robust AI techniques for feature attribution, model simplification, model compression and sensitivity analysis in radio resource management is demonstrated.
