Future Global Intelligent and Sustainable Communications

51st Wireless World Research Forum

Rowan University, New Jersey, USA
18-20 June 2024

Future wireless networks for global communication stand at the confluence of a multifaceted evolution, innovations in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and evolving techniques for ensuring sustainability. The demand for new services has given rise to explosive growth in wireless traffic and the resulting impacts on the environment have raised concerns about sustainability. In order to ensure sustainability in future global wireless communication, intelligence in networks emerges as a critical tool.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will serve as key enablers on multiple aspects of future wireless networks. On the air interface, AI/ML algorithms will ensure optimal and efficient allocation of resources, increase spectral efficiency, and maximize network capacity. Intelligence in base stations will minimize power consumption based on real-time demand. Network optimization algorithms based on AI/ML can analyze vast amounts of data, predict traffic patterns, optimally allocate network resources, and minimize energy consumption during low-traffic periods. Intelligent network management techniques using AI/ML algorithms can predict cyber threats and proactively thwart such threats and improve network security.

AI/ML algorithms will also impart sustainability to future wireless networks. For example, AI/ML-based optimization algorithms can facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources into the network infrastructure, minimize the environmental impact by the use of biodegradable resources, and extend the lifespan of network resources. By exploiting the synergy between intelligence and sustainability, optimized AI/Ml algorithms can pave the way for reducing greenhouse emissions, and minimizing energy consumption in the edge, network, and cloud.

Under the theme “Future Global Intelligent and Sustainable Communications”, the 51st Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) will take place at Rowan University, Glassboro, New Jersey, USA from 18-20 June 2024. You are invited to be part of designing the wireless future by joining us for three days of insightful discussions, presentations, innovative brainstorming, and expert-level networking.
