Title:Deep Learning for Wireless Networks: Which Model to Use?

Abstract: Is deep learning useful for wireless communications and networking? When should we use it, and which model to use? These are typical questions a wireless communication theorist may be wondering these days. This talk is going to partially address these common concerns. Particularly, it will focus on resource management in wireless networks, and introduce how deep learning can be applied for effective performance optimization.
