Technology Spotlight

Artificial Intelligence in Radio Frequencies 

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) as an application of AI, has today become an inevitable part of major industries such as healthcare, financial trending, and transportation. Future urgent need to intelligently utilize wireless resources to meet the need of ever-increasing diversity in services and user behavior, has actuated the wireless communication industry to deploy AI and ML techniques. Intelligent wireless communication aims at maximizing the efficiency of resource allocation by enabling the system to first recognize the available resources, then perceive and learn the wireless environment, and finally reconfigure its operating mode to adapt to the perceived wireless environment. The cognition capability and reconfigurability are the essential features of intelligent radio (also called cognitive radio-CR) in which machine learning techniques mark immense potential in system adaptation.
