The Digital five forces of Cloud, Mobility, Social networks, Big Data & Analytics, AI & Robotics are re-imagining the way every industry works. Artificial Intelligence has been an area of interest to telecommunications for many years. Now, with the availability of immense computing power, and the fusion of digital forces, AI is gaining new importance.
Telecom Companies see the evolution of Information Centric Networks (ICN) and Software Defined Networks (SDN) playing a greater role in capacity and infrastructure management. Cognitive networks that draw upon AI and Machine Learning, solve several problems today’s complex networks face. Any business that uses communication in call centers now relies on AI to improve Interactive Voice Response and speech comprehension. AI also enables better understanding customer behavior, and to enhance offers/products/services.
Businesses are building systems integrating Computing, Communication and Artificial Intelligence driving disruptions, as seen, for example, in Smart, Autonomous Vehicles, Robots and UAVs. The Internet of Things (IoT) that is leveraged in these initiatives is moving towards a “Cognitive Internet of Things”, an IoT system that needs to be anticipatory, self-configuring & self-healing.
The talk will highlight select developments in research in the IT industry.
