“China Mobile has been paying attention to the application of artificial intelligence for a long time and making effort to build an open and collaborative 5G, AI ecosystem,” said Yuhong Huang, Deputy General Manager of China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI).

“The use of AI and machine learning will enable myriad new services opportunities and we are pleased to leverage the capabilities of our 5G Future X architecture to support China Mobile' AI research to optimize future networks and the delivery of many innovative new services,” said Marc Rouanna, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia.

It is hoped that the use of AI will prepare 5G networks for the rapidly changing demands that are set to be placed on networks by billions of IoT devices over the coming years, providing them with the ability to predict, respond and react to these changes in real time.
