RE: 5G / AI / ML – Major Competence Shift – Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning / Deep Learning
5G is now well linked to Automation, Machine Learning and narrow (or specific) Artificial Intelligence.
Compared to earlier 3GPP Releases, 5G simplifies the Network Architecture. At the same time there is a fast shift to Automation. Over 50% of the current tasks / activities will be Automated and decisions with qualified checks will be made by AI / ML software agents. Existing engineers will need to “morph” into IT/devops and data science / programming roles.
At the time of writing we are seeing 5G CSPs “re-skilling” their staff for 5G-Automation, etc..
