Native network intelligence, fast & slow(with a focus on explainable AI)
The blending of network connectivity and advanced computing capabilities, both in the cloud as well as at the network edge, paves the way to the advent of self-driving networks, thanks to a comprehensive and data-rich view of the underlying network components. In this talk we first cover achievements of the current AI-assisted cloud-native architecture, which already empowers operators to deploy networks able to automatically adapt according to high-level goals, and next discuss challenges to move to, as well as benefits coming from, a fully AI-native network architecture. In particular, the talk will overviewing several key ingredients of network AI (explainable, automated, deployable and sustainable), and particular emphasize on the explainability/XAI angle.
