Keynote Title: Mobility-as-a-Service with Level 4 self-driving cars will transform the industry.

Abstract: Major car OEMs in Europe and the US recognize that Automated Vehicles (AV) would be made possible by software on an on-board computer which drives a car in place of human driver. While there are witnessed difficulties of safe hand-over from an AV system to a human driver at Level 3, several OEMs are gaining confidence on commercial deployment of Level 4 self-driving cars, with no human intervention, based on the recent exponential advancements of Deep Learning.
Another apparent movement, especially in the US, is the importance of Mobility-as-a-Service operators, which may potentially change the transportation industry not only for people but also for parcels. Furthermore, these movements would also be more emphasized and further required in China because of many reasons, including to cap further penetration of car ownerships and limit energy consumption and air pollutions.
Upon establishing a mobility service business, the market advantage will shift from conventional car company, if remained as a mere manufacture, to mobility service providers. It is an urgent matter for car industry to think about the transformation of business and commercialize the service business using the Cloud which enables the global expansion of their business. Furthermore, the similar industrial transformation will be happened in other industries.

Keynote Title: Data Mining Using Computational Intelligence

Abstract: This talk highlights some of our recent research results in data mining using computational intelligence. Our algorithms include compact radial-basis- function (RBF) neural networks, incrementally-generated fuzzy neural network, granular support vector machines, semi- exhaustive search and class-dependent feature selection algorithms. We demonstrate our algorithms in a wide variety of challenging data mining problems, such as chip faultdetection, glaucoma diagnosis, EEG signal classification, stock trading and time series prediction, fighter jet response tactics, scanning acoustic microscope image analysis, action recognition in videos, content-based image retrieval, gene selection in microarray data, and face recognition.
