报告人单位：University of Wollongong
Associate Prof Jun Shen is currently postgraduate coordinator in School of Computing and IT at University of Wollongong after serving Research Committer Chair and Head of Postgraduate Studied in School of Information System and Technology. He is associate editor of four journals including SCI indexed Journal of Computational Intelligent Systems and Journal of Complex and Intelligent Systems. He is member of editorial board of other eight journals. He serves as PC chair for seven international conferences and PC member for more than 250 times. He is regular reviewer for more than 20 journals including many IEEE Transactions in computer sciences. Dr Shen has published more than 70 journal papers and 120 conference articles or book chapters, with supervision of 12 PhD students to completion. He has been supported by 25 research grants including ARC DP, NSFC. Prof Shen’s expertise includes big data and its applications in multiple disciplines such as education, transport, management and manufacturing. He has been IEEE NSW Section’s Education Chapter’s chair for more than 10 years and had served as panel member for AIS/ACM’s curriculum review of MSIS2016 representing Asia-Pacific universities. He was a visiting scholar at MIT, GaTech and UCI in the past 10 years. He is senior member of ACM and IEEE.
With the boom of AI and machine learning technologies, huge development of new algorithms and methods in areas such as cybersecurity and computer vision has seen human’s life much easier. However, there are some disciplines, such as education, medicine and transport, still lacking appropriate approaches to tackling challenging problems. This talk will introduce some research work carried out at Centre for Digital Transformation in University of Wollongong, where evolutionary algorithms, classical machine learning and deep learning methods are helping with some novel solutions. The underlying problems include cold start recommendation in micro learning, pathogen-pathogen protein interaction predictions and primary delay analysis in train networks.
