Goal:The Learning-Capable Communication Networks (LCCN) initiative aims to combine insights of several communication networking use cases involving application of various learning techniques. The goal is to work altogether following an experimental research approach to find a common baseline for a best learning architecture.Context:Operational procedures and protocols of today's communication networks typically use explicitly defined mechanisms and representations to reach the goals associated to their design. This practice results into numerous protocols having a restricted space for (self-)adaptability and sensitivity respective to their network context (e.g. network traffic conditions, failure conditions, etc). On the other hand, a wide spectrum of learning and optimization techniques is available such that networks could learn and optimize their behavior in the running context.Planning and milestones:
