While the first wave of artificial intelligence has involved consumer-focused digital intelligence, including fraud detection and chat bots, the technology is now transitioning into IT and beginning to reshape the business infrastructure of multiple sectors. In this workshop, Danish Rafique will join other speakers to discuss where digitalization and machine learning leaves optical networking. Danish will also focus on the type of physical layer intelligence we should provide to aid autonomous optical transport networks and how much benefit an autonomous network aided by physical layer intelligence will bring.
