Speech Title: Advances in Artificial Intelligence for Identification of Autism Spectrum Disorder
Abstract: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder with clinical syndromes and variable deficits in restrictive interests, repetitive behaviors, social behavior and language. In this seminar, I will present a spatial temporal graph-based classification model for ASD using data-driven AI technologies. A novel graph-based K-nearest neighborhood feature selection method is proposed to select the remarkable connections in ASD. Simulation results based on the Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange (ABIDE) dataset show that the AI model outperforms other state-of-the art methods in terms of classification accuracy. The interpretability of the AI model also yields data-driven specific findings of correlation patterns in the autistic brain which cannot be easily identified via traditional approaches.

Speech Title: Learning from Continuously Incoming Data
Abstract: Learning from data is a key area of machine learning or AI that has had significant advancement in recent times.
A paradigm shift can be observed in wide-ranging application domains such as entertainment industry, energy management, construction industry, transport modelling, mechatronics and the broader spectrum of design, which are empowered by rapidly advancing technologies supporting IoT that can generate large quantities of “imperfect” data for analysis of processes and compounds.
The recent learning strategies include Generative adversarial nets (GANs) that are widely used to learn the data sampling process. The performance of GANs and their future applications heavily depend on the improvements to learning algorithm. The maximum mean discrepancy (MMD) is used as the loss function in MMD-GAN which discourages the learning of fine details in data. Our recently published research suggests that a repulsive loss function can help to learn better in MMD-GAN.
How well do the existing data analysis tools cope with learning tailored to take the advantage of such continuously incoming data? Our new research shows that only some methods are more capable of analysing such data.

Speech Title: Advance in Swarm Intelligence, Fireworks Algorithm and Applications
Abstract: Inspired from the collective behaviors of many swarm-based creatures in nature or social phenomena, swarm intelligence (SI) has been received attention and studied extensively, gradually becomes a class of efficiently intelligent optimization methods. Inspired by fireworks’ explosion in air, the so-called fireworks algorithm (FWA) was proposed in 2010. Since then, many improvements and beyond were proposed to increase the efficiency of FWA dramatically, furthermore, a variety of successful applications were reported to enrich the studies of FWA considerably. In this talk, the novel swarm intelligence algorithm, i.e., fireworks algorithm, is briefly introduced and reviewed, then several effective improved algorithms are highlighted, individually. In addition, the multi-objective fireworks algorithm and the graphic processing unit (GPU) based FWA are also briefly presented, particularly the GPU-based FWA is able to speed up the optimization process extremely. Extensive experiments on benchmark functions demonstrate that the improved algorithms significantly increase the accuracy of found solutions, yet decrease the running time sharply. Finally, several typical applications of FWA, in particular, for big-data application, are presented in detail.

Speech Title: Artificial Intelligence for Modern Internet Abuse Detection
Abstract: As the use of the Internet in organizations continues to grow, so does Internet abuse in the workplace. Internet abuse activities by employees—such as online chatting, gaming, investing, shopping, illegal downloading, pornography, and cybersex—and online crimes are inflicting severe costs to organizations in terms of productivity losses, resource wasting, security risks, and legal liabilities. Organizations have started to fight back via Internet usage policies, management training, and monitoring. Internet filtering software products are finding an increasing number of adoptions in organizations. These products mainly rely on blacklists, whitelists, and keyword/profile matching. In this talk, I would like to share a text mining approach to Internet abuse detection. I have empirically compared a variety of term weighting, feature selection, and classification techniques for Internet abuse detection in the workplace of software programmers. The experimental results are very promising; they demonstrate that the text mining approach would effectively complement the existing Internet filtering techniques. In this speech, I would like to share my knowledge and experience in conducting text mining approach for detecting Internet abuse in the workplace.

Speech Title: Digital and Cyber Forensics in the Artificial Intelligence Era
Abstract: Digital or cyber forensic is the forensic science branch that deals with the collection and investigation of data found in digital devices, in the aim of providing evidence to a justice system. With the tremendous increase of the volume of data collected at a crime scene, the traditional forensic approach shows its limit and some evidence may escape the vigilance of the forensic experts. This talk will present new approaches based on the use of answer set programming (ASP) or Machine Learning (ML) in order to help in solving cases where the sheer volume of data renders next to impossible its processing by humans. This talk in based on preliminary results from the European Union Cost Action "CA17124 - Digital forensics: evidence analysis via intelligent systems and practices".
