Resilient AI/ML for Mobile Networking

4 Mar

Claudio Fiandrino, Senior Researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain

In-house Presentation

The next sixth generation (6G) networks will bring a paradigm shift from “connected things” to “connected intelligence,” supporting even more stringent KPI requirements and services than 5G. Therefore, there are strong expectations that 6G networks will be truly native AI allowing for much swifter and more effective decision-making in scheduling, control and orchestration operations of the end-to-end communication systems. Unfortunately, the existing AI models tailored to mobile networks are black boxes, and their complete lack of transparency is a clear barrier to their adoption in production networks. In this talk, we dive deeper into the current efforts in making AI models explainable and robust in the context of 6G networks and outline future research directions in the field.

About Claudio Fiandrino

Claudio is a Ramón y Cajal Fellow and a senior researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain. He currently leads the Resilient AI Networking sub-group within the Wireless Networking Group (WNG). He obtained his Ph.D. degree at the University of Luxembourg in November 2016, the Master Degree in Computer and Communication Networks Engineering in 2012, and the Bachelor Degree in Ingegneria Telematica in 2010 both from Politecnico di Torino. Claudio was a José Castillejo/Fulbright visiting researcher at Northeastern University, Boston, MA, US in 2022, and a Visiting Ph.D. Student at Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, US in 2016. Claudio has been awarded with the Spanish Ramón y Cajal Fellowship, Juan de la Cierva grants (Formación and Incorporación), the Best Paper Awards in IEEE GLOBECOM 2019, in ACM WiNTECH 2018, and IEEE Cloudnet 2016, the Best Student Paper Award at IEEE NFV-SDN 2022, and the Best Paper Runner-Up Award at ACM WiNTECH 2023. He is member of IEEE and ACM, regularly serves in the Technical Program Committee (TPC) of several international conferences and participates in the organization of events (i.e., he served as TPC Co-Chair at IEEE ICC 2023 and was a cofounder of the “SAFE” workshop on AI explainability held in conjunction with CoNEXT 2023). Claudio is member of the Editorial Board of IEEE Networking Letters and has served as Chair of the IEEE ComSoc EMEA Awards Committee for 2022-2023. His primary research interests include explainable and robust AI in 5G/6G networks, performance characterization of 5G networks with measurements in the wild, and of 5G core network functions.
