Keynote 3: AI-Enabled 5G Automation and IoT Business Models
As we anticipate the widespread deployment of 5G, we still don’t have a precise idea of how billions (eventually trillions) of connected objects could affect networks. Despite this uncertainty, as an industry we must ensure that networks remain secure and resilient. The sheer amount of data being created by the Internet of Things will exponentially increase the difficulties in spotting anomalies resulting from cyber-attacks. According to Capgemini, ‘over half of organisations say their cybersecurity analysts are overwhelmed, while close to a quarter are unable to successfully investigate all identified incidents’. For this reason, AI will play a pivotal role in 5G security, offering the ability to automate threat and fraud detection in real time. AI may also be used to power self-healing networks. This vital session will examine the vital role of AI in 5G security automation.
