- While the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to 5G networks has raised a strong interest, standard solutions to bring AI into 5G systems are still in their infancy and have a long way to go before they can be used to build an operational system. In this paper, we contribute to bridging the gap between standards and a working solution, by defining a framework that brings together the relevant standard specifications and complements them with additional building blocks. We populate this framework with concrete AI-based algorithms that serve different purposes towards developing a fully operational system. We evaluate the performance resulting from applying our framework to control, management and orchestration functions, showing the benefits that AI can bring to 5G systems.
