ABSTRACT:

While the deployment of the 5th generation (5G) mobile communication is accelerating worldwide, we are witnessing exciting global research and development activities driven by academia, industry, and governments to formulate and define the next-generation mobile technology, i.e., 6G, which is expected to be commercially available in the 2030 timeframe. Unlike previous generations, 6G will be transformative and will enable interconnections between humans, things, and intelligence within a deeply intertwined and hyper-connected cyber-physical world, characterized by the integration of communications, intelligence, sensing, control, and computing. It will also profoundly impact major sectors and vertical industries, including the metaverse, autonomous and smart lifestyles, intelligent transportation, brain-computer interfaces, smart healthcare, industry 5.0, and sustainable intelligent cities

In this talk, we will introduce a comprehensive overview of various aspects of 6G, including vision, technical requirements, and candidate enabling technologies. Of particular focus will be the introduction of artificial intelligence and machine-learning methods for future wireless communications systems design and optimization [1].
