Digital Twin for 6G and IoT
Release time:May 14, 2021

Topic: Digital Twin for 6G and IoT

Speaker: Prof. Yan ZHANG, University of Oslo, Norway

Time:Saturday, May 15, 9:00-10:00 am

Venue: F708, New Main Building


In this talk, we mainly introduce our recent studies on Digital Twin (DT) for edge computing, 6G, Internet of Vehicles, air-ground networks, and IoT. We will first introduce the main concepts and challenges related to Digital Twin. Then, we present a novel scenario DITEN (Digital Twin Edge Networks) and the research challenges related to offloading, edge association and resource optimization. Throughout the talk, we join DT, machine learning and Blockchain to add intelligence and present our ideas on utilizing machine learning (e.g., deep reinforcement learning, federated learning) for low-latency, privacy-preservation, and energy-efficiency.
