Title: Machine Learning from Streaming Data with Scarce and Imprecise Labels
Accurate predictions at multiple temporal and spatial scales from many sensors can potentially enable innovations across various industries. For example, moving from corrective to predictive maintenance of complex infrastructure based on knowledge extracted by many instruments could be more cost effective since this can facilitate early and interpretable risk predictions with uncertainty estimates and allow optimization of damage mitigation and prevention strategies. Similarly, in proactive emergency monitoring, a network of sensors could estimate operating conditions before they occur, which can direct deployment of control measures for avoiding undesirable outcomes. In this talk an overview of our recently developed methods to facilitate such end-to-end solutions will be discussed within the context of our ongoing DOE funded project aimed at predictive analytics in a large electricity grid from multiple phasor measurement units. Challenges and the proposed solutions will be discussed related to (1) deep-learning based detection and classification of local and system-wide events using rapidly refined, partially inspected event labels; (2) digital-twin based data enhancement for events insufficiently represented in field-recordings over the training period; and (3) transfer learning to leverage relevant labeled events from a different network to minimize additional labeling effort.

Title: On the Integration of Radiomics and Transcriptomics Markers
During the last years, an increased number of studies investigate the relationship between the imaging features extracted from the tumor region (radiomics) and the gene expression profiles (transcriptomics), in order to contribute in the diagnosis, treatment planning and prognosis of cancer. This talk addresses such interactions among CT imaging features (e.g., shape features, image intensity histogram metrics, texture features) and RNA transcript measurements (expression of selected genes), as a vital means to enhance the predictive power in the diagnosis of cancer. The so-called radiotranscriptomics associations are used for the biological interpretation of the radiomics features based on their transcriptomic substrate. The first part of the talk demonstrates and biologically justifies the transcriptomics-based phenotype of lung cancer, providing a meaningful functional representation of the radiomics features. The second part of validation confirms the potential of radiomics in enhancing the predictive power of gene expression profiles, supporting the connection and complementarities between the transcriptome and the phenotype in cancer.

Title: Artificial Intelligence for Agriculture and The Environment
Two of the greatest challenges humanity faces today are feeding the growing population of the Earth and protecting the environment. To rise up to these challenges, agriculture must effectively deal with conflicting demands: The increase of the Earth’s population calls for high yields of quality crops, while increasing environmental pressures on Earth’s ecosystems dictate sustainable agricultural production that burdens the environment as little as possible. Examples of how AI can help agriculture include the use of machine learning to build models for yield prediction as well as the use of decision modelling to asses multiple functions of agricultural soil and suggest measures for improving them. Artificial intelligence also plays an increasing role in environmental protection, allowing for more effective environmental modelling and management. For example, remotely sensed data can be used for machine learning to address a variety of tasks, including environmental monitoring and environmental risk assesment. The lecture will briefly introduce key concepts from artficial intelligence and review the use of AI for agriculture and the environment through illustrative case studies.
Sašo Džeroski is head of the Department of Knowledge Technologies at the Jozef Stefan Institute (Ljubljana, Slovenia) and a full professor at the Jozef Stefan International Postgraduate School. He is also a visiting professor at the European Space Agency (Frascati, Italy). His department develops artificial intelligence methods for machine learning and decision support and uses them to solve practical problems from agriculture and environmental sciences, medicine and life sciences, and space operations/Earth observation.
He has conducted many international projects in basic and applied research, including industrial projects forARVALIS, Institut du vegetal and the European Space Agency. He has participated in numerous EU funded projects and coordinated three of them, most recently the FET Open project MAESTRA (Learning from Massive, Incompletely annotated, and Structured Data).

Title: Artificial Intelligence for Speech Reproduction with Natural Voice in Patients after Tracheostomy
Loss of voice, may be due to problems in various organs of the human voice system is a major disability which commonly results in social isolation. By utilizing multimodal information sources such as video, audio and text, a sophisticated personalized voice reconstruction system can be created. In this work we collect videos from a patient talking, before loss-of-voice medical procedures, in order to design a complete system for lip-reading in the Greek language. In order to preprocess the data we apply lip-segmentation and frame-level sampling techniques. Text is matched with the corresponding video frames in order to create a word to frames dataset. Then deep learning methods are applied to create a sequence-to-sequence model for word prediction from lip-area frames. Our results show that the presented model achieves 85% accuracy. Our model is the first deep learning model that is trained to recognize words from lip-are images in the Greek language.
Themis Exarchos holds an Engineering Diploma, from the Dept. of Computer Engineering and Informatics of University of Patras (2003) and a PhD in Medical Informatics from the Medical School of the University of Ioannina (2009). He has more than 200 publications in journals, conference proceeding and book chapters. He has worked in many research and development projects, funded by EU and other bodies.

Title: Optimisation Techniques in AI: Perspectives
The field of applications of Optimisation techniques, is an integral part of machine learning and has attracted much attention of the research community across the globe in the past decade. With an exponential growth in the amount of data and the increase in complexity of a machine learning model, applications of optimisation techniques in machine learning come across more and more challenges. A lot of work on solving optimization problems or improving optimization methods in machine learning has been proposed successively in the literature. The systematic retrospect and perspectives of the applications of optimisation techniques with respect to machine learning are of great significance, which can offer a strong mathematical foundation of any AI model.
Developments of optimisation models are the essence of most AI models. The primary aim of most machine learning algorithms is to build an optimization model and learn the parameters in the objective function from the given data. In the era of immense data, the effectiveness and efficiency of the numerical optimization algorithms dramatically influence the popularization and applications of the machine learning models. In order to promote the development of machine learning, a series of effective optimization methods were put forward, which have improved the performance and efficiency of machine learning methods.
In this talk I will address significant applications of optimisation techniques in most successful machine learning algorithms. Specifically, I will provide perspectives of applications of optimisation techniques in Support Vector machine and Neural networks. Further I will talk about how these perspectives are critical for understanding the mathematical frameworks of machine learning models. This talk will also illustrate some real-world case studies from optimisation in AI models including a quick overview of development of fractional deep neural network model.

Title: DataFlow SuperComputing for BigData DeepAnalytics
This lecture, followed by a mini-tutorial on DataFlow programming, analyses the essence of DataFlow SuperComputing, defines its advantages and sheds light on the related programming model that corresponds to the recent Intel patent about the future Intel’s dataflow processor. The stress is on issues of interest for science and engineering that support machine learning with big data.
Acording to Alibaba and Google, as well as the open literature, the DataFlow paradigm, compared to the ControlFlow paradigm, offers: (a) Speedups of at least 10x to 100x and sometimes much more (depends on the algorithmic characteristics of the most essential loops and the spatial/temporal characteristics of the Big Data Streem, etc.), (b) Potentials for a better precision (depends on the characteristics of the optimizing compiler and the operating system, etc.), (c) Power reduction of at least 10x (depends on the clock speed and the internal architecture, etc.), and (d) Size reduction of well over 10x (depends on the chip implementation and the packiging technology, etc.). The bigger the data, and the higher the reusability of individual data items (which is typical of ML), the higher the benefits of the dataflow paradigm over the control flow paradigm. However, the programming paradigm is different, and has to be mastered.
The follow-up mini tutorial (to be organized after the symposium, via zoom) explains the programming paradigm details, using Maxeler as an example and sheds light on the ongoing research, which, in the case of the speaker, was highly influenced by four different Nobel Laureates: (a) from Richard Feynman it was learned that future computing paradigms will be successful only if the amount of data communications is minimized; (b) from Ilya Prigogine it was learned that the entropy of a computing system could be minimized if spatial and temporal data get decoupled; (c) from Daniel Kahneman it was learned that the system software should offer options related to approximate computing; and (d) from Tim Hunt it was learned that the system software should be able to trade between latency and precision. The follow-up mini tutorial also includes hands-on opportunities for attendees.
