The future of 5G wireless networks is being researched further as Huawei investigates the potential of operating AI robotics systems over the network.
Huawei and the University of Edinburgh widen their research into AI robotics system, to look at how they can join the systems with the next generation of wireless technology.
The University of Edinburgh has already done a vast amount of research into AI and autonomous systems, which the partnership aims to build on. It plans to give new insights into how the systems will use the AI technology to collaborate with mobile networks.
Researchers at both Huawei’s Wireless x Labs and University of Edinburgh’s new Bayes Centre will jointly research how AI systems can enlighten and change wireless 5G networks, to bring the best wireless support to meet the needs of connected robotics and systems.
Initially the research focus will be around healthcare robotics and mobile video, looking at the best ways to optimise the potential of both technologies and bring them together effectively.
Professor Charlie Jeffery, the University of Edinburgh, said: “We are thrilled to have deepened our relationship with Huawei to researching 5G within AI applications. Our ambition is to utilise the knowledge of our world-leading experts to fully understand the interaction of AI and robotics systems with mobile networks.
“This new research agreement gives our team the opportunity to apply their 5G networking expertise into solving real-world problems – helping to transform industries including healthcare and emergency services.”
Benefits from the research will be the ability to enhance the performance of both networks and applications and enable better interaction between people and systems.
Peter Zhou at Huawei said: “We are delighted to continue working with the world-leading team at the University of Edinburgh to help understand how improvements within mobile broadband can foster innovation within wireless robotics systems.
AI is a key feature of 5G networking, and we are excited to deepen our understanding of how the interaction between applications and networks can create new benefits and enhancements.”
The pair begun their partnership earlier this year, announcing that it will run throughout a three year period to explore new theories and technologies in data management and provide direction for cutting edge research into the next generation of IT.
