Abstract

   Artificial intelligence is an important technical trend in the
   industry.  With the development of network, it is necessary to
   introduce artificial intelligence technology to achieve self-
   adjustment, self- optimization, self-recovery of the network through
   collection of huge data of network state and machine learning.  This
   draft defines the architecture of Network Artificial Intelligence
   (NAI), including the key components and the key protocol extension
   requirements.

Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described inRFC 2119 [RFC2119]

1.  Introduction

   Artificial Intelligence is an important technical trend in the
   industry.  The two key aspects of Artificial Intelligence are
   perception and cognition.  Artificial Intelligence has evolved from
   an early non-learning expert system to a learning-capable machine
   learning era.  In recent years, the rapid development of the deep
   learning branch based on the neural network and the maturity of the
   big data technology and software distributed architecture make the
   Artificial Intelligence in many fields (such as transportation,
   medical treatment, education, etc.) have been applied.  With the
   development of network, it is necessary to introduce artificial
