Abstract:

Electronic health records (EHRs) have become ubiquitous in healthcare and are generated in large quantities and diverse content. With this explosion of such information in conjunction with community data and the advent of powerful artificial intelligent analyses, we are now in the perfect storm to improve healthcare by reducing morbidity, mortality and costs.This keynote talk will report several predictive modeling applications, development of natural language processing from deep neural networks, and recent field evaluation of a predictive model at the point-of-care in a large children’s hospital. We have developed predictive modeling automatically learned from large structured and unstructured EHR data such as demographics, laboratory results, medications, and narrative clinical reports, in conjunction with community data such as birth and death records. We applied the models to risk identification of infant mortality, morbidity in pediatric intensive care, 30-day hospital readmissions, and suicide attempts. In addition, we have developed deep neural networks for identification of social context from narrative clinical reports. Social context has demonstrated to be one of critical factors impacting healthcare outcomes. Most importantly, very few predictive modeling has demonstrated its effectiveness in real-time clinical practice. We demonstrated up to 43% of readmission reduction in two months of pilot study within a large children’s hospital by combining risk prediction and hospital intervention.

Abstract:

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is a general technical term or function which means the processing of discrete-time signals or data sequence either in real-time or off line to get the desirable result. In this paper, we review the history of the development of DSP and the connection to the applications in Artificial Intelligence (AI), including both hardware and software algorithms. Since World War II, if not earlier, electronic engineers have speculated on the applicability of digital hardware techniques to the many problem areas in which signal processing plays a role. Thus, for example, Laemmel (1948) reports a lunchtime conversation among Shannon, Bode, and several other Bell Laboratory scientists on the possibility of employing digital elements to construct a filter. Needless to say, the conclusion was not favorable. Cost, size, power consumption, and reliability strongly preferred analog filtering and analog spectrum analysis techniques. It was not until the mid-1960 that a more formal theory of DSP began to emerge. By then the potential of integrated circuit technology was appreciated and was reasonable to complete signal processing systems that could best be synthesized with digital components. As of today, there are many embedded hardware platforms build on very large scale integrate circuits (VLSI), such as floating-point digital signal processors as well as field programmable gate array (FPGA). At the same time, DSP techniques have been advanced rapidly in recent years and have found many applications in almost every field of technology. In software algorithm development, it starts from adaptive signal processing (1975), then moves to machine learning, neural network, and finally named as artificial intelligence, which becomes a rapid growing field today.

Abstract:

Machine learning methods show promise in reducing the number of network analysts required to monitor a large complex network for malicious or anomalous activity. This would potentially free humans to perform other tasks such as mitigation, recovery and analysis of the attack or malware. Today, false positives, inherent in any detection system, wastes precious resources. To utilize machine learning techniques, to improve both issues; sensor data or variables must be pre-processed in some manner to provide input to the learning system. Deep neural nets have demonstrated success of artificial intelligence methods in restricted domains, however, in cyber security applications the problem space is essentially unbounded. Further, the adversary seeks to foil detection. This presentation will briefly look at techniques and problems that have led to our current understanding and solutions. Notable progress by researchers has improved performance in the past several years. Some solutions are being brought to market by startup companies spun off from academic research. A review of two promising approaches will be followed by a discussion of a model that identifies critical variables and sensory input to feed into a learning network. The challenges faced in this project and directions for future research to improve the detection rate and response to changing attack models will conclude the talk.

Abstract:

Cloud computing offers an innovative business model to enterprise for IT services consumption and delivery. Software as a Service (SaaS) is one of the cloud offerings that attract organizations as a potential solution in reducing their IT cost. However, the vast diversity among the available cloud SaaS services makes it difficult for customers to decide whose vendor services to use or even to determine a valid basis for their selections. Moreover, this variety of cloud SaaS services has led to proprietary architectures and technologies being used by cloud vendors, increasing the risk of vendor lock-in for customers. Therefore, when enterprises interact with SaaS providers within the purview of the current cloud marketplace, they often encounter significant lock-in challenges to migrating and interconnecting cloud. Hence, the complexity and variety of cloud SaaS service offerings makes it imperative for businesses to use a clear and well understood decision process to procure, migrate and/or discontinue cloud services.

Abstract:

The future research innovation and development is in the field of Automation and Robotics in conjunction with the ubiquitous access to Internet, Information Communications Technologies (ICT), Smart Computational Devices (SCD) and Ultrafast Global Communication. The third millennium is a new era the Smart Cyberspace that is becoming pervasive in its nature while connecting the next generation of Ultra-Smart Robotic. Device with the computationally powerful SCDs is accessible to anyone, anywhere and at any time. In support of Automation and Robotics, the telecommunications networks providers and SCDs developers, are working together to create much faster transmission channels with provision of higher quality of service for any multimedia content for anyone, anywhere at any time. The human machine interface with high definition audio and video facilitates seamless control of Smart Robotics and Computational Devices (SRCD), which are becoming a common technology in family homes, business, academic, and business, and industry worldwide. Today, SRCD are communicating via Robotic Internet and may be accessible to public and private customers, while storing important and to some extend confidential information in their memory. In case that SRCD may be lost, stolen or hacked into, the information stored in the memory could be abused, compromised or used for malicious purposes. In near coming future, we may see the SRDC be used to aid, or to protect family residential areas, private homes, schools, hospitals, manufacturing plants, as well as, Cyber Physical Critical Infrastructures (CPCI) such as, atomic power and chemical plants, and large cities. The further research, innovation and development of Future Ultra-SRCD side by side with Future Ultrafast Robotic Internet, will require even more research, innovation and development in the field of Cyber Assurance and Security. Proper safety and security mechanisms and policies will become critical to protect the SRCD and COIP from any form of intrusion or cyber threads from anyone, from anywhere at any time. The author discusses the current and future trends of research, innovation and developments in SRCD, CPCI and Cyber Assurance, in conjunction with the Future Ultra-Fast Internet and Ultra-SRCD. The author promotes creation of multidisciplinary multinational research teams and development of next generation SRCD and Fully Automated Environment while utilizing Ultra-Smart Robotic and Computational Devices, in conjunction with the critical Cyber Safety and Assurance challenges for today and for tomorrow.

Abstract:

The competitive advantage literature establishes a strong relation between technology innovation and high firm performance. As an emerging technology, Artificial Intelligence is increasingly associated with the potential to lead disruptive innovation, and becoming a new factor of productivity and profitability across industries. However, to be able to benefit from the full potential of Artificial Intelligence, firms should understand the new design challenges ahead, beyond technology, and consequently develop appropriate innovation strategies. In this context, a multidimensional approach to innovation management is used to discuss the design challenges across the dimensions which include: technology, business model, business processes, organization design, services/products and sustainability. In our view, synchronizing design objectives between these dimensions helps to assess the implications of the adoption of the artificial intelligence for the firm’s innovation strategy towards 2035 for example. It is about helping the leadership during strategic planning processes to understand how to navigate landscape of the next generation of automation with artificial intelligence. From a practical perspective, three cases which include healthcare, insurance and government are discussed.

Abstract:

In the Gliwice Research Centre, the multiple problems of different models of vibrating beam systems analyzed by the structural numbers methods modelled by means of the graphs and hypergraphs have been solved. The discrete - continuous torsionally and flexibly vibrating mechanical and mechatronic systems were considered. In comparison to dynamical flexibilities only for mechanical flexibly vibrating beam, as a part of complex mechanical and/or mechatronic systems, exact method and approximate methods were used. In this paper, the hypergraphs methods have been used for modeling of mechanical subsystems – vibrating beams – of simply mechatronic subsystems of complex mechatronic systems. On the base of the obtained formulas, which were determined by the exact and approximate method, it is possible to make the analysis of the considered vibrating system by only approximate method. Taking into consideration, other boundary conditions of mechanical or mechatronic systems and other kinds of their vibrations, it is necessary to achieve other researches review in this paper. The problems will be presented in future works, because necessary conditions to synthesis of transverse vibrating mechanical or/and complex mechatronic systems must be obtained.
