Samsung 6G forum, an opportunity to learn what to expect from 6G technology and how it will develop
Samsung Electronics has announced that today the company is holding its first ever online forum Samsung 6G (S6GF) online.
Under the topic “The next hyperlink experience for all”, the forum is divided into two sessions and broadcast live on Samsung’s YouTube channel. Each session consists of reports from experts from academia and industry specializing in next-generation communication technologies, followed by a panel discussion.
“We anticipate that 6G will provide the best experience for people and everything that goes through the next level of hyperlink, and this idea is at the heart of our 6G vision,” said Sebastian Seung, president and head of Samsung’s research.1 “We believe that now is the time to start preparing for 6G. The creation of 6G will take many years, as we have seen in previous generations, and will require a lot of discussion and cooperation between industry and academia.
Morning session – 6G terrestrial interface
The morning session is held on the topic “6G Air Interface”. During this session, Jeffrey Andrews, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, delivered a presentation entitled “Deep Learning in the 6G Broadcast Interface,” emphasizing that deep learning (DL) will be the technological key to enabling 6G that can make significant progress in many levels of the etheric interface.
After the keynote address, Charlie Zhang, Senior Vice President (SVP) of Samsung Research America, Takehiro Nakamura, Senior Vice President and General Manager, NTT DOCOMO, and John Smee, Senior Vice President, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., gave in-depth expert lectures.
Charlie Zhang, Senior Vice President, Samsung Research America, gives a presentation on “The Evolution of Radio Technology Beyond 5G and 6G.” He explains that while 6G technology is still in its infancy, several new directions are emerging and gaining momentum in academia and industry, including support for new spectrum, such as the upper middle band in the range of 7 to 24 GHz. and terahertz (THz) band, new antenna technologies, evolution of duplex technology and network topology, spectrum sharing, artificial intelligence (AI) as a native part of protocol development, and more.
NTT DOCOMO Senior Vice President Takehiro Nakamura talks about the “evolution of 5G and 6G”, highlighting technology and service-oriented research into the evolution of 5G, and 6G is accelerating worldwide. Senior Vice President, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. John Smith talks about “Developing Innovation for the UI to 6G”, emphasizing cutting-edge research and development of wireless communications in various areas that will bring destructive innovation and expand the boundaries of technology to provide new and improved user capabilities with 6G.
After the presentations, Juho Lee, a Samsung Research Fellow, moderates a panel discussion on 6G RAN technology. Sonhyun Choi, Executive Vice President (EVP) and Head of Samsung Research’s Advanced Communications Research Center, then shared Samsung’s progress in 6G research along with demonstration videos.
Afternoon session – Smart Network for 6G
The second session is entitled “Smart Network for 6G”. Tariq Taleb, Professor at the University of Oulu, Finland, begins with a keynote address on “6G – A Way to a New Vision of Services”. He notes that artificial intelligence, virtualization of network functions, software-defined network and marginal / cloud computing have brought significant benefits in terms of reduced operating costs and costs, flexibility of deployment and faster time to market, and recalls that 6G is likely to new wind of cloud mobile networks.
After the keynote speech, Shinju Maeng, Master of Samsung Electronics, Bonhyo Shim, Professor at Seoul National University, and Shi Jin, Professor at Southeast University, China, will deliver detailed expert reports.
Master Seungjoo Maeng from Samsung Electronics talks about “Problems of using AI / ML technology to improve the performance of mobile communication systems”, highlighting the problems of using AI and ML (machine learning) to improve the performance of wireless mobile communication systems and how to solve them.
Professor Byeonghyo Shim of Seoul National University is lecturing on “Mobile Probing and Beam Generation Using Deep Learning for MHW and THz Communication”, introducing a new paradigm for DL and THz based communication management. Professor Shi Jin from Southeastern University, China, presents “CSI Feedback Based on Deep Learning in Massive MIMO Systems”, discussing issues and potential areas of research related to the implementation of DL-based feedback. channel status) in future wireless communication systems. .
Following these presentations, Samsung Research Vice President Sunhyong Choi moderated a panel discussion on network AI.
