Realising the 5G vision necessitates networks to embrace artificial intelligence in order to truly deliver low latency and high reliability. The ability for networks to predict is integral to all things 5G. As both the volume and speed of data increases, networks need to become far more proactive and anticipatory to optimise network performance and customer experience.
In this paper, we explore a selection of use cases which highlight the role of machine learning in the realisation of 5G networks.
1. Customer Journey Analytics
2. Optimal Autonomous Service Composition
3. Proactive Fault Management
4. Churn Analytics
