An Overview of Learning Mechanisms for Cognitive Systems
Cognitive systems were first introduced by Mitola and in the last decade they have proved to be beneficial in self-management functionalities of future generation networks. The advantages and the way that networks gain benefits from cognitive systems is analyzed in this paper. Moreover, since such systems are closely related to machine learning, the focus of this paper is also placed on machine learning techniques applied both in the network and the user devices side. In particular, celebrating 10 years of cognitive systems, this paper presents an extended state-of-the-art of machine learning applied to cognitive systems as coming from the recent research and an overview of three different learning capabilities of both the network and the user device.
