With the rapid development of wireless communication technology, people have put forward higher requirements for the speed and quality of data transmission in wireless communication while enjoying a convenient life. Wireless communication systems are expected to be combined with artificial intelligence to meet these requirements. Machine learning (ML) can rely on different algorithms to process data without explicit programming. It can also optimize wireless systems by solving complex problems that traditional mathematics cannot solve. This paper briefly introduces wireless communication, machine learning, and the necessity of combining machine learning. The potential and applications of machine learning in various aspects of wireless communication, such as channel estimation, spectrum allocation, adaptive interference suppression, etc., are listed. The paper also introduces the various conveniences that machine learning in wireless communication brings to people in practical applications and the potential hazards that improper applications may bring.
