5G and beyond networks are expected to support a wide range of services, with highly diverse requirements. Yet, the traditional “one-size-fits-all” network architecture lacks the flexibility to accommodate these services. In this respect, network slicing has been introduced as a promising paradigm for 5G and beyond networks, supporting not only traditional mobile services, but also vertical industries services, with very heterogeneous
requirements. Along with its benefits, the practical implementation of network slicing brings a lot of challenges. Thanks to the recent advances on Machine Learning (ML), some of these challenges have been addressed. In particular, the application of ML approaches is enabling the autonomous management of resources, in the network slicing paradigm. Accordingly, this paper presents a comprehensive survey on contributions on
ML in network slicing, identifying major categories and sub-categories in the literature. Key takeaways are also presented and open research challenges are discussed, together with potential solutions.
