Keynote Speaker I
Prof. Philippe Fournier-Viger, PhD
Biography: Philippe Fournier-Viger is distinguished professor at the Shenzhen University (China). He obtained his Ph.D at University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada) in 2010. After working as post-doctoral researcher at National Cheng Kung University, and being a faculty member at University of Moncton, he came to China in 2015 and became full professor at the Harbin Institute of Technology (Shenzhen). There, he received a title of national talent from the National Science Foundation of China. His interests are data mining, algorithm design, pattern mining, sequence mining, big data, and applications. He has published more than 340 research papers related to data mining, intelligent systems and applications, which have received more than 8500 citations (H-Index 46). He is associate editor-in-chief of the Applied Intelligence journal (SCI, Q1) and editor-in-chief of Data Science and Pattern Recognition. He is the founder of the popular SPMF data mining library, offering more than 200 algorithms for analyzing data, cited in more than 1,000 research papers. He is a co-founder of the UDML, MLiSE and PMDB series of workshops held at the ICDM, PKDD, KDD and DASFAA conferences.
Algorithms to Discover Interesting Patterns to Improve Intelligent Systems
Today, intelligent systems play an important role in various domains such as for factory automation, education, the management of telecommunication networks and medical care. To build intelligent systems, high-quality data is generally required. Moreover, these systems can also yield large amounts of data such usage logs, alarm logs, images, videos, and data collected from sensors, and data received from other systems. Due to the large volumes of data, managing the data generated by intelligent systems to gain insights and improve these systems is thus a key challenge. It is also desirable to be able to extract information or models from data that are easily understandable by humans.
Based on these objectives, this talk will discuss the use of data mining algorithms for discovering interesting and useful patterns in symbolic data generated from intelligent systems. The talk will first briefly review early study on designing algorithms for identifying frequent patterns can be used for instance to identify frequent alarms or faults in telecommunication networks. Then, an overview of recent challenges and advances will be presented to identify other types of interesting patterns in more complex data. Topics that will be discussed include high utility patterns, locally interesting patterns, and periodic patterns. Lastly, the SPMF open-source software will be mentioned and opportunities related to the combination of pattern mining algorithms with traditional artificial intelligence techniques for intelligent systems will be discussed.
