Semantic Wireless: a Paradigm Shift in Networked Intelligent Systems

As we are entering the era of connected intelligence, overlooking the content of the exchanged information, its context of use, and its significance in achieving a specific goal is inefficient, come short of meaningfully scaling and is inadequate for emerging time-sensitive and data-intensive communication scenarios. In this talk, we introduce Semantic Wireless, a radically new communication paradigm that accounts for the semantics of information bits being processed and transported, i.e., their relevance and usefulness in attaining a certain goal.
