Title: Beyond 5G: Leveraging AI and Digital Twin for Automated Network Management

In this presentation, we first introduce emerging use cases and their potential requirements in beyond 5G (B5G) networks. Then, we illustrate a vision of holistic network virtualization, featuring network slicing and digital twins, and pervasive network intelligence, highlighting artificial intelligence (AI) for networking and networking for AI. Last, a case study on digital twin and AI-based proactive network resource management is presented, which aims to support multi-tier computing while adapting to spatiotemporal network dynamics.
