Title: The Deep Learning in Physical Layer Communications

Abstract:
It has been demonstrated recently that deep learning (DL) has great potentials to break the bottleneck of communication systems. In this talk, we introduce our recent work in DL in physical layer communications. DL can improve the performance of each individual (traditional) block in communication systems or jointly optimize the whole transmitter or receiver. Therefore, we can categorize the applications of DL in physical layer communications into with and without block processing structures.

For DL based communication systems with block structures, we present joint channel estimation and signal detection based on a fully connected deep neural network, model-drive DL for signal detection, and some experimental results. For those without block structures, we provide our recent endeavors in developing end-to-end learning communication systems. At the end of the talk, we provide some potential research topics in the area.

For any further questions, please go to the local host site to find contact information.

Swe‐CTW 2019 and Best Student Journal/Conference Paper Awards

The 2019 Swedish Communication Technologies Workshop (Swe‐CTW 2019) will bring together researchers and research students in the general area of communication technologies and related areas.

The workshop provides an opportunity for researchers and research students to gather in a largely informal setting to share ideas, make contacts, and foster new collaborative links for the future. The workshop will feature tutorials, poster presentations of submitted abstracts, and invited talks by the top nominated papers for the IEEE VT/COM/IT Sweden Best Student Paper Awards.

Date and time: June 10-12, 2019
Location: Lund University, Lund (Link to google maps)
