Conventional communication systems have been designed to reliably convey sequences of bits over a noisy communication channel. However, many emerging applications, from autonomous driving, to healthcare and Internet of things, involve connecting machines with humans and other machines, where the goal is often not to reconstruct the underlying message, but to enable the receiver to make the right inference or to take the right action at the right time and context. I will talk about a new set of performance requirements and design constraints imposed on modern communication systems by these emerging applications, and present the results of our recent efforts in designing semantic and pragmatic communication systems bringing together ideas and tools from classical information and coding theory with modern machine learning algorithms.
