AI-Driven Networks: From 5G Innovation to 6G Horizons

On the 1st of July, we have held an event called “AI-Driven Networks: From 5G Innovation to 6G Horizons” at ⭕KI Park office. This collaborative initiative by ⭕️KI Park and FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg brought together leading industry practitioners and academic researchers to explore the future of connectivity and AI’s revolutionary role in hashtag5G and hashtag6G network.

Eva Russwurm took the lead on behalf of FAU, supported by a talented team of researchers who presented their research on 5G and 6G networks. Their collective effort demonstrated the growing talent within Germany’s scientific community, under the guidance of Prof. Franchi.

We are happy to present you with the key takeaways and highlights from the event:

🔬 Emerging Young Talent: The event showed how young researchers in Germany are making a big impact, not just on scientific discoveries in 5G/6G Networks and AI applications, but also on market-oriented innovations. Masoud Seifaei introduced an unconventional yet potentially sustainable AI deployment solution: analog chips. It remains to be seen how the market will respond to this innovation.

🖥 Industry Insights: Alfred Manhart from NVIDIA and Philipp Deibert from Deloitte shared deep insights into how AI is being used in 5G networks to drive revenue generation. It’s a challenge that the industry is still working through.

🤖 Innovative use case: Paksy Plackis-Cheng from Staex showcased an impressive use case of a drone collecting real-time data via a 5G network, enabling secure payments through blockchain technology. This was the startup’s first use case at hashtagMarienpark, which has its own private 5G Campus on the site. Marcus Giehrl from NTT and Christian Meine from Investa provided a detailed overview of this newly established Campus. Anyone interested is welcome to use this new 5G Campus.

The common agreement among participants was clear: collaboration is the key to advancing AI in 5G/6G networks. Creating new use cases and educating the market about these advances is essential, and ecosystems like ⭕️ KI Park are highly important for this.

Many thanks to all the participants and FAU for your support! 🚀
