About AICON 2020

Recent developments in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, especially in deep learning, has stimulated growing interests to incorporate AI and machine learning into communication systems and networks. While some researchers have advocated applying deep learning tools to communication system (especially receivers) design, others are doubtful as to how much benefits these tools can offer. On one hand, communication systems have been designed and optimized by generations of dedicated efforts for bandwidth, power, and complexity efficiency, and reliability, leaving little room for improvements in most cases. On the other hand, deep learning enabled networks, supported by results such as universal approximation theorem, seem to promise a new and simple design regime where near optimal performance can be achieved by merely using certain ready to use deep learning modules, applying them to communication design problems, and tuning them based on the easily generated training data. The deep learning based approach may offer some new design approaches for traditionally difficult signal processing tasks in communications and networks.

This conference is meant to stimulate the debate and provide a forum for researchers working in related problems to exchange ideas and recent results (both positive and negative ones) in applying artificial intelligence to communications and networks. Both supervised learning and unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and recent developments in generative adversarial networks, and game-theoretic setups are also of great interests.
