Dr. Lee Harris Schlenker

Conference Theme: 

Decision-Making on the Road to Artificial Intelligence

Abstract:

The ability to conscientiously take decisions among alternative possibilities has long been a viewed as a condition that separates man from machines. As innovations in artificial intelligence transform both operational and managerial processes, the distinction between human and machine intelligence is becoming increasing difficult to define. Applications of machine learning are today crossing the threshold of decision support systems to enter the realm of artificial intelligence, and in doing so, redefine the relationships between human and information resources. After reviewing three examples that illustrate the managerial opportunities and challenges in the Life Sciences, Smart Cities, and Transportation, Dr. Schlenker will challenge the audience to consider the ethical choices for both organizations and society at large.

Dr. Sergio Luján

 

Conference Theme:

E-learning and disability: barriers, current solutions, future solutions

Abstract:

Although the right of people with disabilities to education is recognized by most countries through the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the reality is that much remains to be done to achieve an inclusive education system at all levels and lifelong learning. Unfortunately, it is still a problem for many people with disabilities to get admission in conventional education institutions. In this talk, the current technological solutions aimed at inclusion of people with disabilities in the field of education will be shown. In addition, a forecast about future solutions for the education of students with disabilities will be also discussed.

Dr. José Aguilar

Conference Theme: 

Data-based services for the Internet of Things

Abstract:

In this conference, we will analyze the utilization of the data to improve the performance of the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms. In addition, we introduce the concept of Autonomic Management System (AMS) for Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, based on the concept of autonomic cycle of data analysis tasks, to improve and maintain the performance in an IoT platforms. The concept of Autonomic Cycle of Data Analysis Tasks is a type of autonomous intelligent supervision that allows reaching strategic objectives around a given problem. In IoT, the  AMS composed by an autonomic cycle can optimize the Quality of Services (QoS) and Quality of Experiences (QoE) in IoT platforms. This conference presents the architecture of the AMS (components, knowledge models, etc.), and its utilization in different case studies in IoT context and in Tactile Internet.

Dr. Juan Pedro Valente

Conference Theme: 

Data mining in time series

Abstract:

Time Series are present is many areas of science and industry, with special relevance in Medicine. Many medical tests provide results as time series, like electrocardiograms, electroencephalograms, auditory brainstem responses, etc. Data Mining can help the physicians analyze these results, but Time Series data are a great challenge for traditional Data Mining techniques as input data is no longer a relational database, high volume of data requires dimensionality reduction techniques, new distance metrics must be defined, etc. One of the main approaches to solve these problems is Temporal Abstraction, which also brings a very desirable issue, allowing to “translate” numeric time series to a more medical friendly language.

Speaker biography:

Associate Professor at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid UPM, Department of Languages and Information Systems, and Software Engineering. His principal skills and expertise relates to Data Mining, Knowledge Discovery, Time Series Analysis, Muscle strength, Knowledge-Based Systems and Medical Data Mining.

Dr. David Benavidez

Conference Theme: 

Challenges on software variability and product lines

Abstract:

Software is pervasive and will be one of the most important pieces of engineering in the following decades. Reusing software have been a challenge through the 50 years of software engineering existence. In the last decades, variability has been considered a fundamental aspect to manage the systemic reuse of software. Approaches such as software product lines, software factories, feature-based development and generative programming have been proposed based on variability. In this talk, David will talk and reflect on the challenges that exist in these subjects that many authors consider the foundation for developing software products in the future.

Speaker biography:

David Benavides is an Associate Professor at the University of Seville (Spain), in which he obtained his Ph.D. in 2007. His main areas of expertise are Software Product Lines and Feature Model Analysis. He is also interested in open source and social applications of software systems. He has visited different research centers and has co–authored papers with more than forty external authors along the world and has special connections with South America.

Towards the provision of the Residential Network as a Service

Abstract:

The promises of Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to strengthen innovation and expedite the development of new services is changing the way in which residential networks will be designed, deployed, managed and maintained in the near future. Considering the big picture of the residential network, an SDN-based residential gateway, an SDN-based access network, and a cloud-based centralized user-centric management system would allow achieving a high level of automatization of the operational process of the ISP towards the provision of the Residential Network as a Service (RNaaS).
