Agreed. That is what I want to express in the email that AI will bring more powerful controlling force for the network so that it will improve the transmission at large scale.

Self-healing is valuable but I have a question here. What is the object of “self”? Is it the network or devices? I have ever think about this. If you means the network can self-heal from a unusual state to a usual state (e.g. from few links congestion to global links load-balance ), I think that is the breakpoint which AI can implement. However, I also learn some thought of device self-healing, which means AI help devices recovering from abnormal state (e.g. device failure). I think this is not the points we should consider with because it sounds more related with Machine Automation. The data which should be captured and processed tends to non-network. That means we need to focus on workbook of devices and deal with the fault recovering which we are not professional. (I am not sure whether I have describe it clearly).

Subject: [Idnet] Benefits of Introducing AI into Network

In ETSI NGP ISP, we have an Work Item for IDN (Intelligence-Defined Network). In one of the general sections, We briefly describes the benefits of introducing AI into network, as below.

-          Towards Fully Autonomic Network

-          Ability of Handling Complex Issues

-          More Adaptive and Flex

-          Predictive

-          Potential Self-Evolving Ability

-          Potential Decision Efficiency

If there are major benefits that we have not covered, we would like to include.
