Speech Title: IoT, Smart Home and Smart City: From Sensors to computing
The advancements in electronics, embedded controllers, smart communicating devices as well as the progress towards a better informed, knowledge based society increase the demand for small size, affordable sensors that allow accurate and reliable data recording, processing, storing and communication. This led to the paradigm known as Internet of Things (IoT) in which Wireless Sensor Nodes are most important elements.
The seminar will present research activities on development of IoT and WSN based system towards managing our health and home in a better way. A holistic view of IoT, its challenges and opportunities will be presented. Recent work on sensors for Smart city and water applications will be shared.

Speech Title：ADVANCED NEURAL NETWORK MODELS FOR TIME SERIES PREDICTION & CLASSIFICATIONS TASKS
Time series forecasting and data classification get much attention due to their impact on many practical applications. The task is about gaining insights from data, using different tools, statistical models, and machine learning algorithms, with the goal of discovering hidden patterns from the raw data. However, extracting useful information has proven extremely challenging. Conventional mathematical and analytical methods still face difficulty in deciphering complex data systems. To tackle this, Neural networks (NN), which support a wide range of business intelligence applications, have opened up exciting opportunities for discovering patterns in various data types. They have been attracting widespread interest to be a promising tool for forecasting the times series signals and classifying data based on their respective groups. With the deployment of NN to scour extensive databases, diverse unique and meaningful patterns can be found, which otherwise remain unknown. They can handle imprecision, uncertainty, partial truth, and approximation to achieve tractability, robustness and low solution cost. Hence, this keynote presentation will discuss how NN, individually or in an integrated manner, are becoming strong candidates for performing tasks related to time series forecasting and data classification.
