Many technologies like Full duplex, etc. that were originally intended to be part of 5G were not able to make it into the standards. Along with these, what other revolutionary changes are needed to make Beyond-5G technologies not only fulfil the vision, ambition and use-cases that were originally envisaged for 5G but to take it a step further and make it a game changer.

5G Evolution: Progressive enhancement and new features for new markets
5G not only offers unprecedented performance in its first release, but also provides scope for extensive enhancements in a backward-compatible manner in subsequent releases over the coming years. An overview of the first sets of new features will be given, covering both enhancements of the initial features and the introduction of new capabilities to bring the benefits of 5G to an ever-wider ecosystem including Industrial IoT and non-terrestrial networks.

Wireless Network Intelligence @ the Edge
n just a few years, breakthroughs in machine learning (ML) and particularly deep learning have transformed every aspects of our lives from face recognition, medical diagnosis, and natural language processing. This progress has been fuelled mainly by the availability of more data and more computing power. However, the current premise in classical ML is based on a single node in a centralized and remote data centre with full access to a global dataset and a massive amount of storage and computing, sifting through this data for inference. Nevertheless, the advent of a new breed of intelligent devices and high-stake applications ranging from drones to augmented/virtual reality applications and self-driving vehicles, makes cloud-based ML inadequate. This talk will present the vision of distributed edge intelligence for resource-constrained devices accompanied featuring key enablers, architectures, algorithms and some recent results.
