  • In future 6G networks, digital twins could virtually implement the physical wireless propagation environment, enabling learning, optimization, and dynamical re-calibration of 6G operational parameters to improve network performance. To fulfil this vision, extracting new information, such as depth maps of an environment, from existing sensors is of greatest importance to enable and create scalable and efficient digital twin networks. Using existing mmWave systems already integrated to nowadays devices incurs no additional cost compared to adding new sensors with extra-capabilities. Jointly using communication signals to perform depth map estimation, enables easier network management, keeping network bandwidth usage, reliability, and latency under control, since no extra data and overhead is generated by using secondary sensors. Equally importantly, exploiting signals already designed with the purpose of wireless communication will avoid energy consumption escalation. 

    This talk introduces the problem statement “Depth Map Estimation in 6G mmWave systems” for the 2022 ITU AI/ML in 5G Challenge. Learn how the NIST Communications Technology Laboratory is leveraging innovative measurement methods and equipment to shed light on millimeter wave propagation in real world environments and join us to develop ML models for future wireless communication systems. In the challenge participants are invited to apply ML techniques, using the NIST Communications Technology Laboratory RF measurements to build a depth map of an environment. 

    This live event includes a 30-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community.
