Workshop on KCN: Knowledge Centric Networking - Program

IEEE International Workshop on Knowledge Centric Networking (KCN 2018)

Monday, 16 April, 2018 ● 08:00 – 12:00 ● Room: Iolani 2


Machine and deep learning become increasingly popular and achieve remarkable success nowadays in many application domains, e.g., speech recognition, bioinformatics and computer vision. Machine learning is capable to exploit the hidden relationship from voluminous input data to complicated system outputs, especially for some advanced techniques, like the deep learning. Moreover, some other techniques, e.g., reinforcement learning, could further adapt the learning results in the new environments to evolve automatically. These features perfectly match the complex, dynamic and time-varying nature of today’s networking systems. This workshop focus on discussing a new networking paradigm — knowledge centric networking (KCN). The key insight is applying the emerging machine or deep learning techniques and leveraging the big data to derive remarkable knowledge for benefiting the system design, instead of viewing them as undesired burdens. On the other hand, benefiting from the IoT, big data is mature already for an immediate usage in various networking systems. Thus, we can envision KCN as a rewarding solution to leverage learning techniques on the pervasively available data contents to create knowledge and facilitate the networking system designs.

This workshop presents the state-of-the-art research in KCN, including both theoretical and system aspects to encompass novel contributions in the field of learning techniques applied to communication systems and networks.
