  4. Discussion
  remaining time

  In the last few years and especially in the last few months, the use of
Intelligence and Machine Learning in networking went from a nice future
application to an almost must have. Diverse networking operations from trend
detection in traffic monitoring, beam assignment in 5G, congestion control and
intent-based networking have identified AI as a means to improve their overall
performance under more and more dynamic conditions. One may also imagine how AI
can impact the very design of networks and protocols, or else how to solve
networking problems in original ways using novel and network-specific
artificial intelligence techniques. Several special issues and conferences have
already been organized under these themes and the community wanting to use
these new tools is rapidly expanding. In addition to these, network architects
and designers are also considering the impact of the use of AI/ML on the
network themselves. For example: AI in vehicles generates very large data sets
that need to be sent to the cloud for analysis or to rely on fog/edge
computing. Traffic engineering also requires analyzing very large amounts of
real-time information that then needs to be sent back to the network nodes for
updates and new features. And the application landscape is rapidly expanding
each with its own requirements on the network.

  The meeting wants to bring together the IETF and IRTF community that has
and stakes in the development of both AI/ML based tools and on the networks
that will support them. While we are targeting an open discussion we already
have some presentations planned and you are all welcome to submit a request
before Friday, July 13th so we can finalize the agenda.

  Hoping to see you in Montreal!
