SCOPE

With the accelerated development of digitalization and intelligentization of industries, especially the penetration of artificial intelligence (AI), 6G is considered to support native-AI and digital twin for new AI services and intelligent network autonomy. Toward this end, the 6G network architecture will not be session-oriented, but natively support the deep integration of information, communication, and data technologies (ICDT). Unlike 5G which applies AI technologies as a tool to optimize the traditional algorithms in a patch-on manner, 6G native-AI is deep integration with AI in architectural level for end-to-end AI learning and inference environment. Native-AI will provide the required real-time, trust-worthy, and green intelligent services and high-level network autonomy. Moreover, the digital twin is a real-time interactive mapping network system that is composed of physical network entities and their twin digital networks. Driven by AI technology, the digital twin contents of the network can be used to intelligently analyze, diagnose, simulate and control the physical network efficiently based on data and models. To rapidly promote future networks towards the full-intelligence and full-autonomy, academic and industrial researchers need to be in an effort to converge native-AI and digital twin to realize 6G vision like pervasive intelligence. Hence, this workshop aims to bring together researchers and experts from academia and industry to consider native-AI and digital twin opportunities to enhance ICDT Integrated 6G Networks by considering the aforementioned challenges.
