AI and ML are the latest hot buzz words not only from the top technology companies but also from businesses large or small around the world. AT&T has promoted the cause of AI/ML over the last 20 years in predictive network management. AT&T is upping its game in AI/ML analytics by partnering with the industry and open source communities with new AI/ML platforms like ACUMOS, as well as by using ONAP as a platform to provide a framework for easy integration. We recognized early on that one of the challenges in applying new ML is the conflict of aggressive prediction from AI/ML vs. network reliability. AT&T has implemented a “sandbox” to enable experts in operation to trial AI/ML rules with real time production data in an experimental environment first, then deploy them into production without code changes. This talk will describe the strategy and implementation with a quick video demo.
