ANI_203d | On-Demand | Automation and Insights | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing all aspects of the computer industry. The impacts of AI have been seen on a number of areas such as speech and image recognition. The telecom industry is different. This course provides an overview of AI from a telecom perspective. AI is explored from a definition, underlying technology and use-cases perspective. It starts with an introduction to AI. The course then moves to key AI use cases and the AI technologies of Machine Learning and Deep Learning. The course concludes with a discussion on how to build an AI model, some of the common tools, and the key challenges.
Intended Audience
A high-level technical overview to personnel involved in product management, marketing, planning, design, engineering, and operating wireless (4G, 5G) and wireline access networks
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
■ Define Artificial Intelligence (AI)
■ List the key use cases within telecommunications for AI
■ Compare and contrast deep learning and machine learning
