Keynote Speech Abstract:
The new demands for high-reliability and ultra-high capacity wireless communication have led to extensive research into 5G communications, but the current communication systems, which were designed on the basis of conventional communication theories, significantly restrict further performance improvements and lead to severe limitations. Recently, the emerging deep learning technique has been recognized as an excellent candidate for handling such complicated systems, and its potential for optimizing wireless communications has been fully demonstrated. In this talk, we review the development of deep learning for 5G wireless communication and propose efficient schemes for deep learning-based 5G scenarios. Specifically, the key ideas for several important deep learning based communication methods are described, along with the research opportunities and challenges that remain. On this topic of prime interest, novel communication frameworks of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), and millimeter wave (mmWave) have been well investigated, and their superior performance has been corroborated. We hope that the appealing deep learning based wireless physical layer frameworks can bring a new evolution communication theories and that this work will move us along this road.
