About the workshop
The field of machine learning (ML) has a long and extremely successful history. It has shown overwhelming advantages in many areas, where it is normally difficult to find a concrete mathematical model for feature representation. Different from the existing ML applications, the development of traditional communication systems has vastly relied on theories and models, from information theory to channel modelling. These traditional approaches are showing serious limitations, especially in view of the increased complexity of communication networks. Therefore, research on ML applied to communications, especially to wireless communications, is currently experiencing an incredible boost. The objective of this annual workshop is to promote research activities in the area of intelligent communications and to facilitate collaborations among different universities and companies. The workshop is hosted mostly by the faculty from Imperial College London.
It will be open and free to all researchers, inside and outside Imperial. The speakers for the first workshop are by invitation only.
