Similarly, the second module will focus on statistical estimation. On the first day, Dr Harpreet S Dhillon, from Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Virginia Tech, USA, will deliver an introduction to machine learning and its role in communications; statistical estimation and its role in machine learning and determinantal learning for subset selection in wireless networks.
The folloiwng day, he will present the case study on Grassmann Clustering in Massive MIMO. On the third day, Dr M S Manikandan of IIT-Palakkad will deliver on Cognitive radio applications.
