Workshop-Intelligent Edge Service Towards 6G

Background

As the explosive growth of smart devices and the advent of many new applications, traffic volume has been growing exponentially. The traditional centralized network architecture cannot accommodate such user demands due to high communication latency, low coverage, and lagged data transmission. Therefore, mobile edge service is proposed to bring computation and caching resources at the edge of the 6G wireless networks. The combination of wireless networks and edge functionalities endows the 6G wireless networks with powerful data processing and caching capabilities. However, by incorporating communication, computation and caching resources in wireless networks, the allocation and management of communication, computing and caching resources needs to be jointly optimized for improving the quality of service and user experience. Furthermore, the high dynamics in terms of channel conditions, user mobility, and the available computation and caching capabilities make it quite challenging to jointly optimize communication, computing and caching resources while also dealing with time-varying network condition.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an emerging paradigm in which entities and systems are able to learn and make decision by imitating biological processes. Modern machine learning is a key enabler to deal with the problems with uncertain, time-variant, and complex features of 6G,including channel modeling, network optimization, resource management, routing, protocol design, and application/user behavior analysis. This special issue aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present their latest research findings on the AI- inspired edge communication, caching, and computing for 6G wireless communication and networking.
