The New Framework for Systme-2 Communications Based on Machine Learning


In this talk, we propose a 6G communications architecture to natively support the System-1 AI and can be evolved into System-2 AI. We present the deep learning based AI technologies and associated open issues related with the 6G wireless. The deep-learning neural network (DNN) model is considered as a new entity for the future new communications, with this novel concept, the communication model for 6G will be advanced into a post Shannon paradigm, where the communications of “intelligence” can be performed on the sematic level with primarily the so-called the System-2 context and capabilities.
