SCOPE AND MOTIVATION

The synergy of pervasive intelligence and digital twin (DT) technology has the potential to revolutionize the telecommunications landscape, particularly with regard to 6G networks. This synergy lies in the integration of DTs -- virtual replicas of physical systems driven by real-time data from sensors and devices -- with cutting-edge AI/ML algorithms, which facilitates a virtualized network operation and monitoring environment that is fully automated and intelligently responsive to network conditions and user needs. DTs serve as a cornerstone for deploying zero-touch network architectures, where AI-driven insights can preemptively solve problems, optimize network performance, and tailor services to user demands, thereby transforming the telecommunications industry and supporting various sectors including smart cities, intelligent transportation, and more. However, this synergy does come with challenges, which originate from the complexities of integrating extremely detailed virtual replicas with advanced, powerful and ubiquitous AI capabilities inside the framework of next-generation networks. For example, the expansive nature of 6G networks, designed to support a massive number of connected devices and services, imposes significant demands on DT scalability. Additionally, the integration of DT and pervasive intelligence inherently involves the handling of sensitive data and the potential for increased cyber vulnerabilities. In conclusion, the integration of DT and pervasive intelligence into 6G networks marks a significant step towards constructing intelligent, self-optimizing networks that can anticipate and respond to changing demands in real-time. This shift is critical for supporting the increasingly complex and dynamic digital systems of the future, such as smart cities, autonomous systems, and IoT landscapes, where network services must be extremely efficient, reliable, and flexible.

The objective of the workshop is to explore the pivotal role of DTs and pervasive intelligence in crafting the backbone of 6G networks, emphasizing the synergy between these technologies in achieving unprecedented network performance metrics such as high energy efficiency, ultra-reliability, and minimal latency.
