Edge Intelligence for 6G Networks

Dalian, China|10-12 August 2023


Scope: The six generation (6G) networks are expected to accommodate a huge number of mobile devices, and provision low latency and context-aware intelligent applications to mobile users in a flexible and efficient manner. To support intelligent applications, such as autonomous driving, smart city surveillance, and VR/AR, cloud services are expected to be pushed to the proximity of mobile devices for service quality assurance. For instance, to facilitate safe autonomous driving, the service delay of most vehicular applications is required to be within milliseconds. Edge intelligence aims to process data/computing intensive tasks at the network edge, where a set of mobile devices can work cooperatively for data collection and processing, task offloading, model training/inference, data analytics via edge caching and training, etc. However, edge intelligence systems have to deal with potential challenges. The systems should support various intelligent applications with distinct QoS requirements in terms of latency, reliability, and accuracy. In addition, the service demands exhibit spatial and temporary dynamics due to traffic burstiness and user mobility. It is of importance to manage the communication, computing, and memory/storage resources which jointly affect the perceived user performance.
