Participants in this group are expected to be specialists in the areas of AI and  ML, specifically to help LFN define a strategy around the following:

  • Applications/AI Use Cases in Networking - The new functionality that is made available using AI
  • Networking Domain Specific AI Models - What requirements / datasets are unique to the networking vertical

  • Network Infrastructure for AI - The network itself and the data it provides and/or acts upon from the above layers (Open Source Projects + Vendor solutions+ Domain Data)
Coming out of the special Aug 23, 2023 GB meeting on AI strategy the SPC took up the topic on how to help drive this.  The decision was made that the most suitable place for this would be as a taskforce under the purview of the TAC.
