Experiences and best-practices in operational networks
Edition of AI Net Conference will take place from 31st March
to 2ndApril 2020
The IT and networking industry is experiencing transformation with the increasing adoption of automation enabled by software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV). As this transformation continues at increased scale and speed, artificial intelligence and machine learning have become foundational elements to interact with SDN and NFV to create optimized solutions.
However, the emergence of AI and ML is challenging current network operational practices. Today, operational staff have tight control on network resources; service activation is based on verifiable resource optimization algorithms; and service assurance follows rules defined by clear decision points.
Now all of this is changing. With AI, networks are autonomously controlled by intelligent algorithms that have learnt what action to take from experience. This learning translates training information into a complex matrix of weights, removing the ability to relate neural network processing to an easily understandable decision process. And this causes unease to those who are used to full control over all management process.
AI Net 2020 will demonstrate how early works and implementations with AI & ML have shown promising results.
