Special Session I

Call for Papers on Next Generation (NG) 6G-Enabled Artificial Intelligence of Things - Digital twins- and Cobot Intelligence

Artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) is the combination of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and the internet of things (IoT) infrastructure. AIoT's goal is to create more efficient IoT operations, improve human-machine interactions and enhance IoT-based Big data analytics. As 5G wireless communication technology becomes a reality in terms of performance and implementation, the transition to 6G wireless technology emerges as a necessity to face the state-of-the-art issues and limitations of current 5G systems. Massive MIMO is already providing high data rates along with spectral and energy efficiency. High multiplexing gain and beamforming capabilities also set the stage for optimal performance. IoT technology involves the dense deployment of smart sensing units that provide information in an accurate and timely manner. With the integration of Massive MIMO technology, the 6G Massive AIoT introduces new challenges both from the 6G perspective, such as higher frequency zone exploitation and high data rate performance, as well as AIoT design challenges such as latency, coverage and localization. Numerous technologies have been utilized to face the emerging issues of such massively deployed networks, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning as well as compressed sensing.

Digital twins are virtual representations of a physical object or process. Digital Twins is a logical development and convergence of a wide range of new technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), wireless networking, sensor technology, cloud analysis, artificial intelligence, and data processing. They can be used to analyse, simulate, verify and optimise products or processes and increase their added value. A Digital Twin is multi-level system that captures physical system complexity and requires periodic updates to earlier data obtained. The 6G enabled wireless traffic data and resources in Digital Twins posed several performance monitoring challenges for connected terminals.

The Artificial intelligence of things (AIoT)) now brings collaborative robots—called cobots—into a synergistic working relationship with humans inside the future of automation. The rapid expansion of the Cobots Intelligence is driven by the integration of cobots with various technologies such as of high-speed networking technologies (6G), edge computing, cloud computing, fog computing and cloud robotics.

Moreover 6G enabled wireless network would play a crucial role. The integrated use of technology like Digital Twins/Cobot Intelligence and 6G is a multidisciplinary area for designing effective and efficient communication systems.
