4:15 - 5pm - Next-Level Wireless: AI-Powered Li-Fi + Wi-Fi Networks, by Ashly Joseph, Cisco Software Engineer

This presentation unveils the potential of merging Artificial Intelligence (AI) with Li-Fi and Wi-Fi technologies to create a high-speed, seamless wireless communication network. As we dive into the synergy between Li-Fi, which uses light to transmit data, and the more common Wi-Fi, the role of AI becomes crucial in managing and optimizing this integration. By dynamically allocating resources between Li-Fi and Wi-Fi based on real-time conditions and network demands, AI ensures efficient data flow, improving speed and reliability across environments. We will explore how AI not only enhances network management through smart switching and load balancing but also boosts security and maintenance capabilities, allowing the system to predict and address disruptions before they occur. The session will outline the architecture of this integrated network, showcase practical applications, and demonstrate how this advanced approach can meet the growing data demands of our digital world, making wireless communication more adaptable and robust.
