Speech Title: New artificial intelligence technologies in healthcare
Abstract: Artificial intelligence has significantly influenced the health sector for years by delivering novel assistive technologies from robotic surgery to versatile biosensors that enable remote diagnosis and efficient treatment. While the COVID-19 pandemic is devastating, the uses of AI in the healthcare sector are dramatically increasing and it is a critical time to look at its impact in different aspects. In this talk, I will introduce the application of new deep learning models in medical image understanding. Then, I will discuss Parkinson’s disease (PD) whilst investigating the behaviour analysis of PD mice. I also present the use of machine learning technologies in sentiment analysis, followed by the discussion on several challenges.

Speech Title: Learning and reasoning for distributed computing continuum ecosystems
Abstract: A captivating set of hypotheses from the field of neuroscience suggests that human and animal brain mechanisms result from few powerful principles. If proved to be accurate, these assumptions could open a deep understanding of the way humans and animals manage to cope with the unpredictability of events and imagination. Modern distributed systems also deal with uncertain scenarios, where environments, infrastructures, and applications are widely diverse. In the scope of IoT-Edge-Fog-Cloud computing, leveraging these neuroscience-inspired principles and mechanisms could aid in building more flexible solutions able to generalize over different environments.
