  1. We propose a novel soft-output joint channel estimation and data detection (JED) algorithm for multiuser (MU) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communication systems. Our algorithm approximately solves a maximum a-posteriori JED optimization problem using deep unfolding and generates soft-output information for the transmitted bits in every iteration. The parameters of the unfolded algorithm are computed by a hyper-network that is trained with a binary cross entropy (BCE) loss. We evaluate the performance of our algorithm in a coded MU-MIMO system with 8 basestation antennas and 4 user equipments and compare it to state-of-the-art algorithms separate channel estimation from soft-output data detection. Our results demonstrate that our JED algorithm outperforms such data detectors with as few as 10 iterations.

    We propose a joint channel estimation and data detection (JED) algorithm for cell-free massive multi-user (MU) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Our algorithm yields improved reliability and reduced latency while minimizing the pilot overhead of coherent uplink transmission. The proposed JED method builds upon a novel non-convex optimization problem that we solve approximately and efficiently using forward- backward splitting. We use simulation results to demonstrate that our algorithm achieves robust data transmission with more than 3x reduced pilot overhead compared to orthogonal training in a 128 antenna cell-free massive MU-MIMO system in which 128 users transmit data over 128 time slots.
