The proliferation of advanced wireless services, such as virtual reality, autonomous driving and internet of things has generated increasingly intense pressure to develop intelligent wireless communication systems to meet networking needs posed by extremely high data rates, massive number of connected devices, and ultra low latency. Deep learning (DL) has been recently emerged as an exciting design tool to advance the development of wireless communication system with some demonstrated successes. In this talk, we introduce the principles of applying DL for improving wireless network performance by integrating the underlying characteristics of channels in practical massive MIMO deployment. We develop important insights derived from the physical RF channel properties and present a comprehensive overview on the application of DL for accurately estimating channel state information (CSI) of forward channels with low feedback overhead. We provide examples of successful DL application in CSI estimation for massive MIMO wireless systems and highlight several promising directions.
