The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) revolutionizes future manufacturing facilities by integrating Internet of Things technologies into industrial settings. With the deployment of massive IIoT devices, it is difficult for the wireless network to support the ubiquitous connections with diverse quality of service (QoS) requirements. Although machine learning is regarded as a powerful data-driven tool to optimize wireless networks, how to apply machine learning to deal with massive IIoT…

A Decoupled Learning Strategy for Massive Access Optimization in Cellular IoT Networks
A decoupled learning strategy is developed to jointly and dynamically adapt the access control factors of those three access schemes, where a Recurrent Neural Network model is first employed to predict the real-time traffic values of the network environment, and multiple DRL agents are employed to cooperatively configure parameters of each RACH scheme.
Knowledge-Assisted Deep Reinforcement Learning in 5G Scheduler Design: From Theoretical Framework to Implementation
A knowledge-assisted deep reinforcement learning (DRL) algorithm to design wireless schedulers in the fifth-generation (5G) cellular networks with time-sensitive traffic and an architecture for online training and inference, where K-DDPG initializes the Scheduler off-line and then fine-tunes the scheduler online to handle the mismatch between off- line simulations and non-stationary real-world systems.
GAN-Powered Deep Distributional Reinforcement Learning for Resource Management in Network Slicing
This paper considers a scenario that contains several slices in a radio access network with base stations that share the same physical resources (e.g., bandwidth or slots), and proposes generative adversarial network-powered deep distributional Q network (GAN-DDQN) to learn the action-value distribution driven by minimizing the discrepancy between the estimated action- Value distribution and the target action- value distribution.
Federated Learning for Edge Networks: Resource Optimization and Incentive Mechanism

Traffic Prediction and Random Access Control Optimization: Learning and Non-Learning-Based Approaches
A decoupled learning strategy (DLS) for access control optimization, which individually executes two sub-tasks: traffic prediction and access control configuration, which shows that the DLS optimizer considerably outperforms conventional DRL optimizers in terms of higher training efficiency and better access performance.
