The goal of the Network Intelligence (NI) ETI is to support and endorse researches to embed Artificial Intelligence (AI) in future networks. Future networks need to have built-in (by design) embedded intelligence to allow better agility, resiliency, faster customization and security. Indeed, embedding Intelligence into the network will provide greater level of automation and adaptiveness, enabling faster deployment (from months down to minutes), dynamic provisioning adapted to the nature of network functions, and end-to-end orchestration for coherent deployment of IT and network infrastructures and service chains. It will also result in higher resiliency and better availability of future networks and services.
The aim of the Network Intelligence ETI is to bring together (cross-fertilization) competences in networks and in AI towards better, agile and dynamic smart networks that are becoming a must for the foreseen network transformation.
