Speech Title: Holographic Approach to 3D Object Recognition
Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss two topics in modern information optics: holography and pattern recognition. In the first part of the talk, I will briefly review the basic principle of holography, utilizing the concept of Fresnel zone plates (FZPs). As it turns out, a FZP is the hologram of a point object. In the second part of the talk, optical pattern recognition, i.e., pattern recognition using optics, will be described using the concept of 2D correlation. The use of holography and correlation will then be discussed in the context of 3D object recognition. Finally, holography by 2D raster optical scanning known as optical scanning holography (OSH) is presented to show how holograms with high single-to-noise ratio (S/N) and 3D object recognition can be achieved.

Speech Title: Connecting Isolated Social Multimedia Big Data
Abstract: The explosion of social media has led to various Online Social Networking (OSN) services. Today's typical netizens are using a multitude of OSN services. Exploring the user-contributed cross-OSN heterogeneous data is critical to connect between the separated data islands and facilitate value mining from big social multimedia. From the perspective of data fusion, understanding the association among cross-OSN data is fundamental to advanced social media analysis and applications. From the perspective of user modeling, exploiting the available user data on different OSNs contributes to an integrated online user profile and thus improved customized social media services. This talk will introduce a user-centric research paradigm for cross-OSN mining and applications and some pilot works along two basic tasks: (1) From users: cross-OSN association mining and (2) For users: cross-OSN user modeling.

Speech Title: Fully Actuated System Approach—Background, Developments and Advances
Abstract: Inspired by the practical mechanical fully actuated systems, the fully actuated system (FAS) approach, which is parallel to the well-known state-space one, has been recently proposed for general dynamical control system designs. The state-space models are convenient for obtaining the state vectors (state responses or estimates), but not the control vectors, while the FAS models are those from which the control vectors can be explicitly solved out, and thus can best perform the control. The FAS approach has found its great power in dealing with control of complicated nonlinear dynamical systems, including the time-varying nonlinear systems with time-varying delays. In this talk, the background and the development of the FAS approach are briefly outlined, and recent advances in the stabilization of a type of nonholonomic systems are also briefly presented. New point views and concepts are presented from the FAS approach angle.

Speech Title: Neural Medical Image Recovery
Abstract: Medical imaging is widely used in clinical decision making. However, medical image acquisition or its acquired image still suffers from an array of challenges such as metal artifacts, slow acquisition time, anisotropic resolution, strong noise, etc. In this talk, we present several learning approaches that attempt to recover the original images under these adverse conditions:
(i) a dual domain network (DuDoNet) for reducing metal artifacts in CT via joint learning in both sinogram and image domains;
(ii) a dual domain recurrent network (DuDoRNet) for MRI image reconstruction from undersampled k-space data via joint and recurrent learning in both frequency and image domains;
(iii) a spatially adaptive interpolation network (SAINT) for synthesizing slices to mitigate the anisotropic resolution issue; and
(iv) an artifact disentanglement network (ADN) for removing artifacts or noises without paired data while preserving anatomical structures.
Our approaches, both supervised and unsupervised, leverage deep neural networks as cores, integrate specific domain knowledge, and yield high quality recovery for both simulated data and clinical images.

Speech Title: GA-Based Optimization in Mechatronic Systems: System Identification and Controller Design
Abstract: Fast-response and high-precision motion control is one of indispensable techniques in a wide variety of high performance mechatronic systems including micro and/or nano scale motion, such as data storage devices, machine tools, manufacturing tools for electronics components, and industrial robots, from the standpoints of high productivity, high quality of products, and total cost reduction. In those applications, the required specifications in the motion performance, e.g. response/settling time, trajectory/settling accuracy, etc., should be sufficiently achieved. In addition, the robustness against disturbances and/or uncertainties, the mechanical vibration suppression, and the adaptation capability against variations in mechanisms should be essential properties to be provided in the performance.

The keynote speech presents practical optimization techniques based on a genetic algorithm (GA) for mechatronic systems, especially focusing on auto-tuning approaches in system identification and motion controller design. Comparing to conventional manual tuning techniques, the auto-tuning technique can save the time and cost of controller tuning by skilled engineers, can reduce performance deviation among products, and can achieve higher control performance. The technique consists of two main processes: one is an autonomous system identification process, involving in the use of actual motion profiles of system. The other is, on the other hand, an autonomous control gain tuning process in the frequency and time domains, involving in the use of GA, which satisfies the required tuning control specifications, e.g., control performance, execution time, stability, and practical applicability in industries. The proposed technique has been practically evaluated through experiments performed, by giving examples in industrial applications to a galvano scanner in laser drilling manufacturing and an actual six-axis industrial robot.
