The main driver of new traffic in current backbones has been data shared for Machine Learning. More data has been created in the past five years than in the previous 5,000 years of humanity and the trend is accelerating. Computation, storage, and communication are no longer interdependent, they are entirely merged. This highly interactive workshop explores this new reality and its technical underpinnings. Speakers and participants from industry and academia, who are leading these momentous changes, will provide perspectives on the present and prospective changes for the future.
