WS-17: Workshop on Edge Artificial Intelligence for 6G

6G will revolutionize the evolution of wireless from “connected things” to “connected intelligence”. By embedding model training and inference capabilities into the network edge, edge artificial intelligence (AI) stands out as a disruptive technology for 6G to seamlessly integrate sensing, communication, computation, and intelligence, thereby improving the efficiency, effectiveness, and trustworthiness of 6G networks. Edge AI will accelerate the evolution of sensing capabilities, communication strategies, network optimizations, and application scenarios. However, edge AI will cause task-oriented data traffic flows over networks, for which disruptive communication techniques, efficient resource allocation methods and holistic system architectures need to be developed. The challenges for building edge AI ecosystems are multidisciplinary spanning wireless communications, machine learning, operation research, domain applications, regulations and ethics. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and experts from academia and industry to consider edge AI opportunities across theoretical, algorithmic, systematic, and entrepreneurial considerations to embrace the exciting era of edge AI.
