About the Event
We are proud to present the IEEE Asia-Pacific (AP) Young Professionals (YP) Workshop Series. This series covers technical and professional topics of interest in STEM. All participants across the range from students to retirees are welcome to attend.
Intelligent Green Communications Towards 6G
This talk is jointly organised by
- IEEE Communications Society Asia/Pacific Region (IEEE ComSoc AP) Young Professionals
- IEEE Young Professionals Singapore
- IEEE ComSoc Singapore Chapter
Green communications have always been a target for the information industry to alleviate energy overhead and reduce fossil fuel usage. In the current 5G and future 6G eras, there is no doubt that the exponentially increasing volume of network infrastructure and connected terminals will cause surging energy cost, for which the development of green communications becomes growingly important and urgent. Moreover, to utilize Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to improve green communications has become an efficient and popular solution due to the stringent Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, dynamic traffic overhead, extreme network complexity, and so on. In this talk, we first present the main challenges and considerations for green communications as well as the commonly utilized techniques in 6G. Then, we provide two case studies to analyze how AI can be adopted to improve green communications for Internet of Things (IoT) networks and vehicular networks. We also analyze the common trade-off between energy cost and network performance metrics when developing the green communications. Finally, existing problems and open research issues towards green 6G are discussed.
