SCOPE

As networks and services grow increasingly complex and dynamic, the need for efficient and intelligent management solutions becomes paramount. Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) has emerged as a transformative technology with the potential to revolutionize network and service management by enabling ”zero-touch” operations. AutoML leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to automate the design, deployment, and optimization of network and service configurations, leading to enhanced performance, reduced downtime, and improved user experiences. The primary focus is on the application of AutoML in the context of 5G, 6G, and other advanced technologies. This workshop encompasses a broad spectrum of topics, including the use of AutoML to automate the design, deployment, and optimization of network and service configurations, resulting in enhanced performance, reduced downtime, and improved user experiences. It explores the concept of zero-touch operations, delving into the benefits and real-world implementations of this approach. Integrating AutoML into the 5G and 6G landscape, security implications, and service orchestration are key discussion areas. Additionally, the workshop addresses the challenges and opportunities of AutoML in cross-domain, multi-vendor environments. It encourages the sharing of best practices, case studies, and future research directions to advance the field.
