ML-Assisted Algorithms for Non-Terrestrial Networks
Non-Terrestrial Networks is currently a trending research area motivated by technological advancements, private ventures and standardization activities. This talk will focus on the myths and realities about the 6G SatCom Renaissance, providing an overview of novel architectural paradigms. Subsequently, a series of concrete technical examples will be elaborated, where ML algorithms are applied in space applications. The first part will focus on “ML FOR Space”, which implies the deployment of ML algorithms on the Ground Segment, whereas the second will cover “ML IN Space”, which requires AI chipsets embedded on flying assets. The talk will conclude with a reflection on open challenges and technology roadmaps for the years to come.
