Keynote Speakers

Prof. Chuan Qin (University of Shanghai for Science and Technology)
Speech title: Perceptual Hashing for Image Authentication

Speech abstract: In this talk, the concept of perceptual hashing and its differences with cryptographic hash function and semantic retrieval hashing are first given. Secondly, we illustrate some typical application scenarios of perceptual hashing in the field of image content authentication. Thirdly, a series of representative methods for perceptual image hashing and some of our works are introduced. Finally, the summary and further research directions are discussed.

Assoc. Prof. Chee Wei Tan (Nanyang Technological University)
Speech title: Generative Agents in AI-driven Networks

Speech abstract:  This talk explores generative agents in AI networks, covering their applications, methods, challenges, and future outlook. These agents, powered by large language models like GPT and adversarial learning techniques and reinforcement learning, are crucial for tasks like synthetic data generation and network optimization. Despite their benefits, concerns regarding privacy and AI ethics persist. Distributed privacy-enhancing technologies offer hope for maximizing the potential of generative agents in building resilient and intelligent AI networks in the age of ChatGPT.

Bio: Dr. Tan is currently with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. His research interests are networks, distributed optimization, Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AI for Health-Tech. He serves or has served as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Cognitive Communications and Networking, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and the IEEE Transactions on Communications.

Professor Zhiwen YU (South China University of Technology)
Speech title: Imbalanced learning theory and applications

Speech abstract: In the field of machine learning, it is often assumed that the number of samples in each class is roughly equal. However, in real-world scenarios, the data generated from enterprises or industries often exhibit imbalanced distributions. This imbalance poses significant challenges because traditional learning algorithms tend to favor the majority class while potentially overlooking the minority class. From a data mining perspective, minority classes often carry valuable knowledge, making them crucial. This report aims to explore the issues and theoretical research surrounding imbalanced learning. First, we present our recent studies on imbalanced learning, primarily focusing on addressing high-dimensional imbalanced problems through a multi-view perspective. We propose a multi-view optimization approach that enhances the classification performance of high-dimensional imbalanced data by generating and selecting optimized subviews and employing resampling techniques. Following this, we introduce an adaptive weighted broad learning system (AWBLS) and an incremental weighted ensemble broad learning system (IWEB). These systems effectively address outliers and noise in imbalanced data through sample weighting and density-based weighting mechanisms. Finally, we outline our future research directions, which aim to integrate broad learning systems, ensemble learning, and deep learning to address various scenarios in imbalanced learning.
