Utilizing AI Ep. 8: What Does AI Mean For the Future of Networking

Stephen Foskett and Andy Thurai are joined by Chris Grundemann to discuss how AI is used in enterprise networking, and how it is changing the industry. They begin with a discussion of AI in enterprise networking, connecting it with software-defined networking and other trends. What network management tasks can be improved through the use of AI? Grundemann looks to using the technology in root cause analysis and fault correlation as well as prediction of network events. The discussion then turns to the ways that AI workloads will change the workload or demand on networking. AI systems demand data, throughput, and low latency, and the networking must adapt to support these workloads.
