    The goal Introduce students to the principles of cognitive radio, a new way of thinking and research in the radio communications. New generation radio systems must be able to solve the growing demands for high speed wireless access through better management of resources. In the course, students will learn about the possibilities of better access and more efficient use of spectrum.
    The outcome At the end of the course, students will be able to: - Learn a new way of thinking and research in the field of radio communication - cognitive radio - Learn techniques to better access and more efficient use of resources, particularly spectrum, combined with the technology of machine learning - Review the future direction of development of radio communication through the use of cognition in radio.
    Contents of lectures - Radio evolution to cognitive radio - Ideal and real cognitive radio - The structure of cognitive radio: the components and their functions, the cognitive cycle, hierarchy of reasoning (algorithmic implementation of the cognition) - Multidimensional spectral space and spectrum sensing techniques - Dynamic spectrum management.
    Contents of exercises Solving the problem of coexistence primary and secondary users in cognitive radio through the exercises.
