Artificial intelligence (AI) is touching nearly every industry in the world with companies deploying or evaluating AI for many applications. Communications service providers are starting to widely deploy AI processing to enhance and manage network services including 5G RAN. Key benefits from deploying AI include improved customer experience, enhanced network performance, new revenue generation and reduced network operation costs. AI processing requires some level of acceleration and can be implemented using different approaches including AI as a service (AIaaS). This creates multiple challenges for service providers as the industry moves from the early adopters to the widespread application of AI.
