6G Research Visions Webinar Series: Edge Intelligence

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Date and Time: Wednesday 21 October 2020 at 10:00-11:30 AM (Helsinki, UTC/GMT +03:00, CET +01:00)

Join the webinar series highlighting the insights of the new 6G White Papers written by international Expert Groups!

The 6G Research Visions Webinar Series: Edge Intelligence highlights the key results of the expert group that prepared the 6G White Paper in Edge Intelligence. In this white paper, we focused on bringing intelligence on the edge of the networks, including edge computing infrastructures and platforms, data and network management, software development for edge, and real-time and distributed training of ML/AI algorithms, along with security, privacy, pricing, and end-user aspects. The webinar highlights especially the application areas for intelligent, AI/ML-capable edge services.


Dr Ella Peltonen, University of Oulu, Finland: Vision towards the Intelligent Edge
Dr Atakan Aral, TU Wien, Austria: Distributed training under node and link failures
Dr Adrian Kliks, Poznan University of Technology, Poland: Edge Intelligence -based autonomous driving and platooning: Requirements, challenges and applications.

Also, other white paper expert group members will be available for discussion.


The webinar series and individual webinars are free of charge and open to all interested in 6G research and development. The special focus of this webinar are intelligent edge applications. Please register for the webinar at the latest on 20 October 2020. Registered participants will receive access information for Zoom via email.


The webinar series is organized by the Finnish 6G Flagship program and representatives of the 6G White Paper Expert Group. For more information please contact us via 6gflagship@oulu.fi.

Highlights of the 6G White Paper on Edge Intelligence:

Similarly to the transition from cloud to Cloud Intelligence, we are constantly assisting at an evolution from the “Internet of Things” to the “Internet of Intelligent Things”. There is a need for an “Intelligent Internet of Intelligent Things” to make such internet more reliable, more efficient, more resilient, and more secure. This is exactly the area where 6G communication with edge-driven artificial intelligence can play a fundamental role.

Artificial intelligence on the wireless communication nodes can enable a number of advanced services and quality of service functionalities. We claim that performance, cost, security, efficiency, and reliability are key features and measurable indicators of any Edge Intelligence solutions.

The evolution to the deployment of a new generation of edge intelligence systems, applications and services will take place during the next ten years, with the completion of different technological steps that will provide new devices, technology, and applications.
