      The goal Next-generation radio communication systems should support extremely large throughputs and radically new applications, what implies a new paradigm of implementation. The challenge is how to apply intelligent adaptive learning processes and decision-making methods in the next-generation networks. The application of artificial intelligence in all segments of the radio network is considered.
      The outcome Student who completes this course is expected to: * understands the basic concepts of various techniques of artificial intelligence, * understands the possibility of applying machine learning in different segments of a single radio system, * master the basic algorithms and software tools for applying the techniques of machine learning to specific problems.
      Contents of lectures Overview of basic concepts of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Basic types of machine learning (unsupervised, reinforcement, supervised, semi-supervised). Classification, regression, clustering. Validation methods. Overfitting problem. Examples of applications from the radio system domain.
      Contents of exercises Independent practical research.
