15:45-16:45Panel - Intelligence for IoT,0-Touch and New Networks

The Intelligence for IoT, 0-TOuch and New Network panel is devoted to discussing crucial topics of the ICT evolution and in particular the communications ones. Intelligence in this context can assume the form of more programmability of resources and the introduction of Artificial Intelligence tools and functions in order to help in the execution and management of resources. Heterogeneous resources can aggregate in different ways for supporting the communications needs of different applications domains (e.g., slicing, access to specific functions and the service execution in different cloud environments). In addition, the importance of edge resources will pose relevant issues to management and dynamic aggregation into efficient infrastructures at the edge. IoT and New Network are large applications fields that will need intelligence and 0-Touch solutions for their successful implementation and large scale deployment towards high number of resource constrained devices, multiplicity of service requirements, and new connectivity paradigms.

A renowned group of experts will discuss these and more topics:
