Event KEYNOTE Speakers

Here are the list of our three keynote speakers

Thursday, 28 January 2021 9:00 am-10:00 am

Speaker 3

Professor Nikola Kasabov (Fellow IEEE, Fellow RSNZ, Fellow INNS College of Fellows)

Professor at SECMS and Founding Director KEDRI, Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand

  • Title: Brain-Inspired Spiking Neural Network Architectures for Computer Vision
  • Speech Time: Thursday, 28 January 2021 9:00 am-10:00 am
  • Abstract: The talk argues and demonstrates that the third generation of artificial neural networks, the spiking neural networks (SNN), can be used to design brain-inspired architectures for computer vision. Similarly to how the brain learns, these SNN models do not need to be restricted in number of layers, neurons in each layer, etc. as they adopt self-organising learning principles of the brain. The presented approach is illustrated on an exemplar brain-inspired SNN architecture NeuCube (free software and open source available from www.kedri.aut.ac.nz/neucube). Case studies are presented of moving object recognition, facial emotion recognition, face aging recognition, person verification. As NeuCube is designed to follow a brain template, knowledge transfer between humans and machines becomes possible through the creation of brain-inspired Brain-Computer Interfaces (BI-BCI). This opens the way to build a new type of AI systems – the open and transparent AI. More details can be found in: N.Kasabov, Time-Space, Spiking Neural Networks and Brain-Inspired Artificial Intelligence, Springer, 2019, https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783662577134

Thursday, 28 January 2021 2:00 pm-3:00 pm

Speaker 1

Professor Richard Green (IEEE)

Professor of Computer Science, Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

  • Title: Computer Vision in Precision Agriculture and Precision Aquaculture
  • Speech Time: Thursday, 28 January 2021 2:00 pm-3:00 pm
  • Abstract: Recent advances in computer vision/deep learning, sensors and processing power/cost has enabled fully autonomous robots and drones to reliably perform tasks. But accurately doing so outdoors is a fascinating and exiting research endeavour – which is also seriously challenging, with capability still so short of human cognitive capability. I will describe some UC contributions across these research areas, including recent computer vision/deep learning research into drones pruning forests, robots pruning vineyards, general purpose farm robots, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) inspecting mussel lines, AUVs scanning ship hulls and wharf pylons to detect invasive biofouling species and AUVs mapping the seabed to locate scallops. Labour shortages and quality/accuracy/safety are the biggest drivers for so many of these precision agriculture/aquaculture applications - but based on recent accelerated computer vision capability, how long until all such repetitive human manual labour tasks can be automated?
  • Short Bio: Since 2004 Professor Richard Green has been lecturing in computer science at the University of Canterbury after running his own successful 50 staff software company in Sydney (sold to a multinational). With over 200 refereed publications, Richard heads the Computer Vision Research Lab with an emphasis on autonomous robot vision/deep learning (robots/drones/underwater robots) and analysing human movement. He has led successful MBIE projects, including an autonomous robot-vine-pruner project and an autonomous forest-pruning-drone project. Richard also leads RAs in SfTI Adaptive Learning Robots), SfTI Precision Aquaculture, MBIE UOAX1810 MaaraTech (agritech robotics) and MBIE Singapore-NZ Bridging the Gap Between Remote Sensing and Tree Modelling with Data Science. UC is now a world leader in this autonomous software research, with a large AI Robotics (UC AIR) research group.

Friday, 29 January 2021 9:00 am-10:00 am

Speaker 1

Professor Dacheng Tao (ARC Laureate Fellow, FACM, FIEEE, FAA)

Professor of Computer Science, School of Computer Science, The University of Sydney, Australia

  • Title: Towards Trustworthy Deep Learning
  • Speech Time: Friday, 29 January 2021 9:00 am-10:00 am
  • Abstract: We are fortunate on the edge to embrace the revolutionary progress of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and to witness the enthusiasm of translational AI deployments sweeping across all sectors in our life and work. The almost simultaneous rise of transformational deep learning, big data, and powerful computational machines since 2010 is progressively enabling AI systems to perceive, learn, reason, and behave like a human, and makes the next generation of AI systems distinct from those developed in the past. Thus, it is critical to better understand why deep learning is capable and has the capacity to raise the third wave of AI. In this talk, we will present our investigations, initiatives, and insights to the interpretation of the successful deep learning.
  • Short Bio: Dacheng Tao is currently Advisor and Chief Scientist of the Digital Science Institute at The University of Sydney. He mainly applies statistics and mathematics to artificial intelligence and data science. His research is detailed in one monograph and over 200 publications in prestigious journals and proceedings at prominent conferences such as IEEE TPAMI, TIP, TNNLS, IJCV, JMLR, NIPS, ICML, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, AAAI, IJCAI, ICDM and ACM SIGKDD, with several best paper awards, such as the Best Theory/Algorithm Paper Runner Up Award at IEEE ICDM’07, the Distinguished Paper Award at 2018 IJCAI, the 2014 ICDM 10-year Highest-Impact Paper Award, and the 2017 IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper Award. He received the 2015 Australian Scopus-Eureka Prize, the 2018 IEEE ICDM Research Contributions Award, and the 2020 Eureka Prize of Excellence in Data Science. He is a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, AAAS, ACM and IEEE.
