Dr Junlan Feng, Chief Scientist, China Mobile General Manager of AI and Intelligent Operation R&D Centre

China Mobile has a number of measures to help accelerate the transformation of its network, with a strong focus on intelligent networks. It has increased its investment in R&D and sees the orchestrator as the brain of the entire transformation, and so will work with organisations such as LF Networking and ONAP, to see this through. China Mobile believes AI will be the key element for 5G and future networks, but the relationship between the two is actually mutually beneficial. On the one had, looking at AI for 5G, the complexity of 5G networks and the layers of intelligence required means that AI can assist in its development and implementation. On the other hand, there is also 5G for AI, where 5G networks enable lots of AI applications to achieve a wider scale and broader delivery at lower cost. In other words, AI-based apps could turn out to be the killer apps for 5G.
