Keynote Speaker 3: Prof. Tong Zhou

Title: Structure Identifiability of Networked Dynamic Systems and Beyond

Abstract: Networked dynamic systems (NDS) have been attracting research attentions for a long time. With technology developments, especially those in communications and computers, the scale of an NDS becomes larger and larger. Moreover, some new issues also arise, such as attack prevention, random communication delay/failure, etc. In addition, recent marvelous success in artificial intelligence greatly stimulates constructions of artificial NDSs with a huge number of nodes. On the other hand, some classic problems including revealing the structure of an NDS from measurements, computationally efficient conditions for NDS controllability/ observability verifications, etc., still remain challenging.

In this talk, a model is introduced for a large scale NDS in which subsystems are connected through their internal outputs in an arbitrary way, and subsystems may have distinctive dynamics. A matrix rank based necessary and sufficient condition is given for the global identifiability of subsystem interactions, which leads to several conclusions about NDS structure identifiability when there is some a priori information. This matrix also leads to an explicit description for the set of subsystem interactions that can not be distinguished from experiment data only. Importance of “structure identifiability degree” is also revealed through numerical simulations, with a discussion on its influences on model prediction capabilities and system performances.

Keynote Speaker 4: Prof. Naoyuki Kubota

Title: Computational Intelligence for Multiscopic Topological Twin

Abstract: Cyber-Physical System, Digital Transformation, and Digital Twin have been discussed based on the integration of information, intelligence, communication, and robot technologies in various research fields. In order to simulate a real-world phenomenon in the cyber world, we often have to extract features and structures from given or measured big data based on topology. Therefore, we proposed the concept of topological twin. The aim of topological twin is to (1) extract topological structures hidden implicitly in the real world, (2) reproduce them explicitly in the cyber world, and (3) simulate and analyze the real world in the cyber world. The topological twin plays the important role in extracting and connecting structures hidden in real world from the mutliscopic point of view. In this talk, we discuss the concept of topological twin in robotics in order to bridge the cyber-physical gap from the multiscopic point of view. First, we introduce the concept of multiscopic topological twin, and next, various types of topological mapping methods, unsupervised learning methods, and graph-based methods. One of them is Growing Neural Gas (GNG) that can dynamically change the topological structure composed of nodes and edges. One important advantage of GNG is in the incremental learning capability of nodes and edges according to a target data distribution, but the computational cost of standard GNG is very expensive. Therefore, we proposed a method of multi-scale batch-learning GNG called Fast GNG. Next, we show the comparison result of Fast GNG with other methods. Furthermore, we show several experimental results of robot partners and mobility support robots. Finally, we discuss the applicability and future direction of multiscopic topological twin in robotics.

Title: An Integrated Model Predictive Control (MPC) Framework for Autonomous Intelligent Systems

Abstract: Autonomous intelligent systems, which lie at the intersection of unmanned systems, robotics, systems and control, multi-agent systems, networked and distributed systems, machine learning, etc. Autonomous intelligent systems are equipped with abilities such as sensing and perception, data processing and information fusion, intelligent decision making, autonomous control, learning and adaption, communications and computation, thus can achieve a high level of autonomy to perform missions without human intervention or can naturally interact and collaborate with humans and/or environment. The fundamental control theory and methods in autonomous intelligent systems are of central importance in orchestrating all related functions. Autonomous control and intelligence can be applied to various systems, e.g., aerial vehicles, marine vehicles, ground robots, space exploration, energy and power systems, transportation and smart city, intelligent agriculture, smart manufacturing, smart health care systems, Internet of Things, etc. Model predictive control (MPC) is a promising paradigm for high-performance and cost-effective control of autonomous intelligent systems.

Keynote Speaker 6: Prof. Jinglu HU

Title: Semi-Supervised Classification Based on Laplacian Support Vector Machine with Quasi-Linear Kernel

Abstract: In this talk, we first introduce a semi-supervised classification algorithm based on Laplacian support vector machine (SVM) with a quasi-linear kernel. The algorithm consists of two steps. In the first step, it composes a quasi-linear kernel through implementing a piecewise linear model based on neural networks. In the second step, the piecewise linear model is further optimized by a Laplacian SVM algorithm using the quasi-linear kernel function. In both steps, it effectively leverages a small amount of labeled and a large amount of unlabeled data so as to achieve good classification performance. Then we introduce an application of the algorithm to construct a semi-supervised classifier for parasite image classification, by including a semi-supervised feature extractor based on deep CNN using contrastive learning.

Keynote Speaker 7: Prof. Massimo Tistarelli

Title: Forensic Biometrics: Bridging Technology with Forensic Science

Abstract: In the last decades, digital technologies have been applied in forensic investigations only to a limited extent of their possibilities. A number of factors have hindered the wider adoption of these technologies to operational scenarios. However, there has been a number of successful applications where digital biometric technologies were crucial to support investigation and to provide evidence in court. Given the great potential of biometric technologies for objective and quantitative evidence evaluation, it would be desirable to see a wider deployment of these technologies, in a standardized manner, among police forces and forensic institutes.

In this talk, the actual state of the art in forensic biometric systems will be briefly reviewed, trying to identify the outbreaks and pitfalls of current technologies. Despite of their impressive performance, some recent biometric technologies when applied to forensic evaluation demonstrated sometimes to be lacking under some respect. Other technologies will need adaptations to be ready for the forensic field. We postulate that there is a challenge to be faced with more advanced tools and testing on operational data. This will require a joint effort involving stakeholders and scientists from multiple disciplines as well as a greater involvement of forensic institutes and police forensic science departments.

Keynote Speaker 8: Prof. Long Cheng

Title: Recent Advances on Hand Rehabilitation Robots for Post-Stroke Patients

Abstract: Post-stroke patients pay most attention to the upper-/lower-limb rehabilitation and neglect the rehabilitation training of the hand. However, hand is the most important execution organ of human beings, which plays a critical role in daily lives. Meanwhile, the area charging the hand motor in the human’s brain is large. Therefore, the study on the hand rehabilitation robot can help the function recovery of patients’ hands and improve their brain plasticity, which is valuable theoretically and practically. This talk is going to introduce the mechanism design and optimization techniques of the motion-compatible hand rehabilitation robot to ensure the comfortable and safe use of the robot. In addition, some novel impedance control algorithms are presented to realize the passive/active rehabilitation training.

 Keynote Speaker 9: Prof. Katsuhiro Honda

Title: Algorithm of Fuzzy Clustering and Application to Local Data Analysis

Abstract: Fuzzy clustering is a basic technique for unsupervised classification and is utilized in summarization of intrinsic data structures. In this talk, the theoretical characteristics of several fuzzy clustering algorithms induced from Fuzzy c-Means (FCM) are reviewed. Then, some of their applications to local data analysis are introduced. By replacing the prototypical centroids of FCM with least-square-type modeling, the basic data modeling is extended to local data analysis, which is the hybrid of data space partition and local area modeling.
