Abstract: Due to the explosive growth of new users and new applications, it is expected that the wireless spectrum will need to be used in a dynamic fashion starting in the near future. This can be achieved by using the concept of cognitive radio, giving users access to the unused spectrum under dynamic spectrum access. It is generally accepted that conventional methods of cognitive radio will fall short of being able to handle the enormous demand for spectral resources, and therefore it is expected that techniques from artificial intelligence or machine learning will help provide dynamic control for spectrum sharing. The process of spectrum sharing begins with sensing the spectrum. Recently, a number of techniques for spectrum sensing employing machine learning have been introduced. In this talk, we employ a machine learning approach known as generative adversarial networks towards this purpose. This particular approach is known to be very successful for anomaly detection in image processing. We alter performance criteria used in this set of networks from image processing applications to wireless and employ such networks for spectrum sensing, both in conventional and cooperative spectrum sensing. Initial results show the efficacy of this approach. Speaker(s): Dr. Ender, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/329642
