In today's fast-paced technological landscape, we find ourselves in the midst of a transformative era, where Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are at the forefront of innovation. This era, often referred to as the "Age of AI and ML," has revolutionized how we interact with technology, make decisions, and even shape the future of industries across the globe. AI growth is primarily fueled by Advances in Machine Learning, Algorithms, Improvements in Computational Power, Big Data and Increased Connectivity.
As the world races forward, Southeast Asia is emerging as a hub for innovation and progress. Singapore is always at the forefront of leveraging AI and machine learning to drive innovation and growth in a range of industries. Snapshots healthcare providers use AI for disease diagnosis, patient predictive analysis, personalized treatment and optimizing drug development. Educators use AI to transform new ways students learn, and to create personalized and adaptive learning. Malaysian financial services adopt cutting-edge AI/ML techniques for enhancing customer experience and product offerings, faster decision-making, improving efficiency and managing risk.
Further, according to Singapore’s Smart Nation Journey, by 2030, Singapore aims to be a leader in developing and deploying scalable, impactful Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions, in key sectors of high value and relevance to citizens and businesses. On the one hand, the National AI strategy outlines Singapore’s plan to deepen the use of AI to transform the business landscape. On the other hand, many IT leaders have uncertainty about their existing IT infrastructure, or whether their in-house expertise is ready to take full advantage of AI and ML technologies.
Integrating AI into Network will enable AI to use ML algorithms to learn from past network issues, enabling automatic diagnosis and solutions to reduce troubleshooting time. First, a vast amount of data (structured and unstructured) is collected from various network devices and data is preprocessed to clean and normalize; network engineers will identify specific features or patterns and reengineer from raw data to be input as AI algorithms. ML are trained on historical data and learned to recognize patterns. After the training, models are used for real-time anomaly detection, when it detects an anomaly, it triggers an alert. The AI system can use its learned knowledge to analyze root causes and recommend remediation actions to resolve network issues. AI systems are designed to learn, with self-evolving training power that drives dynamic and continuous advancement.
Embracing AI with Network Management will reduce the effort taken to increase network uptime and reliability. AI analyzes network data patterns, allowing for preventative maintenance, avoiding network downtime and optimizing network performance by adjusting resource allocation automatically without human intervention. For example, CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid, AI-Driven SD-WAN has the ability to create scenario planning and correlation analysis for dynamic routing and network performance optimization.
In the future of networking, AI drives greater integration between the business and its network. With AI, the focus shifts from understanding application behavior and letting AI-influenced networking automation handle the rest. Employees can then focus on bigger, more important business goals with a more strategic impact.
Integrating AI into Cloud can optimize cloud infrastructure and cost efficiency by automating many processes like resource allocation, load balancing and scaling. This will increase efficiency and reduce downtime. By analyzing patterns and anomalies in network traffic and user behavior, AI can identify potential threats and take appropriate actions to prevent them, thereby enhancing security.
AI also provides valuable insights into cloud usage patterns, trends, and user behavior. This information can help organizations make informed decisions about capacity planning, resource allocation, and service optimization. AI provides personalized recommendations for cloud services and applications based on user behavior, preferences, and historical data. This improves user experience and increases customer satisfaction.
AI and ML are poised to further revolutionize network and cloud management in the future. The technology is expected to improve in its ability to predict issues before they occur. With the proliferation of IoT devices and increased network and cloud complexity, the ability to proactively maintain connectivity will be even more critical. Advanced machine learning models will likely be able to identify more subtle patterns in data, leading to more accurate predictions and smarter automatic resolution of cloud and network issues.
Using AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) – the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to network operations, to better understand and react to a more diverse, dynamic edge. AIOps is a cutting-edge approach that harnesses the capabilities of AI to gain deeper insights into the intricacies of the ever-evolving edge environment. AIOps solutions hold the potential to significantly improve the performance of end-user devices and Internet of Things (IoT) clients. Simultaneously, they bolster network security and introduce self-healing mechanisms across a spectrum of networking domains, including wireless and wired Local-Area Networks (LANs), Software-Defined Wide-Area Networks (SD-WANs), and Secure Access Service Edge solutions (SASE).
Using ML algorithms and big data analytics to correlate massive volumes of dispersed data into meaningful insights. AIOps provides deep visibility into different devices’ experience with each application, connecting from a manufacturing floor, branch office or home office. The solution then surfaces actionable intelligence to enterprise IT. AIOps can provide the IT team the visibility to quickly isolate and resolve issues, instead of spending hours on root cause analysis. This will be a big step closer to the long-term vision of a self-healing network.
In terms of cybersecurity, by drawing from its comprehensive data reservoir, using AI and ML or generative AI, to foresee breaches and propose policy modifications, thereby enhancing threat detection, prevention and response. Using AI helps dramatically shrink the internal attack surface, for example, AI-based systems can monitor user and system behaviors and establish a baseline of normal activity and flag any deviation from it or identify suspicious user activities and helps to detect insider threats and compromised account promptly.
