Spotlight on Research with Raquel Mini and Per Skarin

​Changing the industry landscape using 5G and AI
​A new generation of cellular wireless systems, 5G, is now being rolled out to provide unprecedented reliability, improved access times, and massive IoT connectivity. The overall aim of 5G is to provide ubiquitous connectivity for any kind of device and any kind of application that may benefit from being connected. This paves the way for numerous new use cases in a wide variety of vertical industries, such as the manufacturing, automotive and agricultural sectors. These new 5G applications will be cloud native and one important research topic in this context is how can we use AI to perform observability for efficient and automated failure detection and failure mitigation. Another important aspect is that the cloud native paradigm allows applications to acquire resources dynamically but also expects them to be resilient. Even critical industrial systems must consider this, while the network infrastructure provides automated measures that make detrimental events unlikely. Such features lead to the support and use of AI in the applications and networks. This talk touches upon these aspects and presents a real-world example through Weiron – a factory automation project at Ericsson in collaboration with Volvo.
​​Raquel MiniRaquel Mini is a researcher at Ericsson working in the Cloud Systems and Platforms area. She got her BSc, MSc, and PhD in Computer Science from Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil. Before joining Ericsson in 2021, Raquel worked for more than 20 years as a Professor of Computer Science in Brazil. Her research addresses the area of sensor networks, IoT, ubiquitous computing, and cloud computing. 



Per SkarinPer Skarin is a researcher at Ericsson working in the Cloud Systems and Platforms area. He got his MSc in Computer Science and his PhD in Automatic Control from Lund University. Per went into research in 2015 where his latest endeavor is a thesis on Control Over the Cloud within the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program. He has also recently done work within the WASP strategic research arenas WARA Public Safety and WARA Collaborative Autonomous Transports. His focus is on the use of cloud technology in the automation of critical cyber-physical systems. Before going into research, Per has over a decade of experience from development organizations in and outside of Ericsson.
