Column by Ms. Sun, a KCGI alumnus, appeared in IEICE quarterly magazine

Mr. Yimeng Sun, a graduate of Kyoto College of Computer Science and Graduate Institute of Information (KCGI), wrote a column entitled "Report on Participation in the ITU Challenge", which appeared in the Autumn 2021 issue of IEICE B-plus, a quarterly magazine published by the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE).While at KCGI, he participated in the "AI/ML in 5G Challenge" with his advisor, Assistant Professor Badr Mochizuki, and won the Grand Prize. He reported in detail about his research and presentation, and wrote a column entitled "Let's go out into the world, young people!The book is subtitled.After completing his studies at KCGI in March 2021, Dr. Sun will work as an assistant professor at his alma mater, conducting research on data analysis and deep learning, and mentoring younger students.

The AI/ML in 5G Challenge competition, organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), was held on November 11, 2020, with the goal of applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to 5G networks to solve real-world challenges.Dr. Sun and Dr. Mochizuki estimated the network state (throughput and loss rate) while using machine learning in real time, and then built and proposed a machine learning model with an estimated recognition accuracy of throughput of 96.3% using deep learning from a given real-time video data set.With the rapid increase in the use of Zoom and other webcam-based telework systems around the world due to the global spread of the new coronavirus, this project was evaluated as having the potential to reduce communication speed, improve communication delay countermeasures, and improve the communication system itself.In response to this request, the IEICE asked Dr. Sun to contribute a column to the journal.

In his column, Dr. Sun added that he had also presented at the ITU Final Conference, which was held online worldwide after the conference, and that "this challenge gave me the experience of using machine learning and deep learning to solve real-world 5G network problems, and allowed me to communicate with other researchers [around the world].He is expected to play an active role in this year's competition, which will be held again this year, and has been a great inspiration and influence to the younger students of his alma mater.

In 2021, KCGI newly established "Artificial Intelligence" as a specialized subject group.Students learn the basic theory and application of artificial intelligence and related techniques such as data science through actual examples in various application fields, and acquire techniques for using artificial intelligence in various fields while becoming proficient in artificial intelligence-related software.
