Machine Learning Algorithms for 6G Wireless Networks: A Survey

The primary focus of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) integration within wireless technology is to reduce capital expenditures, optimize network performance, and build new revenue streams. Replacing traditional algorithms with deep learning AI techniques have dramatically reduced power consumption and improved system performance. Further, the implementation of ML algorithms also enables the wireless network service providers to (i) offer high automation levels from distributed AI/ML architectures applicable at the network edge, (ii) implement application-based traffic steering across the access networks, (iii) enable dynamic network slicing for addressing different scenarios with varying quality of service requirements, and (iv) enable ubiquitous connectivity across the various 6G communication platforms. In this chapter, we review/survey the ML techniques which are applicable to the 6G wireless networks. and also list the open problems of research that require timely solutions.
