IEEE Technical Committee on Cognitive Networks (TCCN)

The goal of Technical Committee on Cognitive Networks (TCCN) is to provide a platform for its members in particular, and the cognitive and artificial intelligence (AI) enabled networking research, development, policy making and standardization community in general, to interact and exchange technical ideas to identify major challenges and also drive solutions in the development of AI-enabled networking technologies. The technical issues addressed by the committee will include spectrum agile/dynamic spectrum access networks, related issues from PHY to application layers, security and privacy issues, policy issues (e.g., spectrum policy reform by U.S., Canada and European Union), implementation technologies (e.g., embedded AI, software radio, middleware), economic considerations and standardization activities.

Cognitive networks, especially AI-enabled radio and networks are touted to drive the next generations of digital communications. This technical area is attracting a tremendous amount of interest from academia, university, industry and government. New IEEE standardization activities, FCC’s spectrum policy reform, federally funded research programs (e.g., DARPA XG and NSF NeTS ProWiN) are some examples of major activities supporting R&D in cognitive and AI-enabled networks.

TCCN has an active presence in the social media. Join the LinkedIn group and Facebook page to keep updated on the latest developments.
