Reinventing Wireless with Deep Learning

DeepSig to Speak at NVIDIA GTC 2018

Posted by Ben Hilburn on Feb 22, 2018 1:41:00 PM

We are excited to share that DeepSig has been invited to speak at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference 2018! GTC is in San Jose, California, March 26th - March 29th.

DeepSig is presenting a titled "Designing Wireless Systems with Deep Learning - An Autoencoder-Based Approach to PHY Layer Design". The talk is in the Telecommunications track of the conference, on Wednesday the 28th at 4 PM. Our talk has the program ID "S8791", and will be co-presented by our CTO, Tim O'Shea, and our Director of Engineering, Ben Hilburn.

We will be discussing how DeepSig is using machine learning to change how core wireless infrastructure and capabilities are built.

The field of wireless engineering is on the cusp of a revolution, driven by deep learning, that will define the next paradigm in wireless system design. While wireless communications technology has advanced considerably since its invention in the 1890s, the fundamental design methodology has remained unchanged throughout its history - expert engineers hand-designing radio systems for specific applications. Deep learning enables a new, radically different approach, where systems are learned from wireless channel data. As the world becomes more connected and the Internet of Things becomes a reality, it is difficult to overstate the enormity of the impact to both commercial and military systems. This talk will provide a high-level overview of deep learning applied to wireless communications, discuss the current state of the technology and research, and present a vision for the future of wireless engineering.
