Speech Title : How to realize the potential of advanced IT to make cities smarter?

 
 
 

AbstractDiverse IT, typically, mobile devices, sensor networks or IoT and AI are successfully developed so far. They are expected to contribute to making cities smarter. Cities are really important for better economy, society and QoL (Quality of Life) of people because majority of people and companies are located there.
IT development has been deployed so far to optimize individual urban services, such as road traffic or mobility service by car (e.g. UBER or GRAB). However, overall optimization or better integration of different urban services, typically Maas (Mobility as a Service) has not yet been achieved. Contribution of those IT advances are still limited, though they already have very high potential as we know. In addition, IT-based urban services usually collect quite detailed data on the behavior or activities of individuals to improve the quality of services. But such accumulation of personal information often make people worry about how the data or information are used. Such suspicions of people have to be taken care of, though they could be annoying to IT experts.
Probably, only technological improvement may not be enough to realize smart cities. A new design or improvement of social system on how to use data belonging to diverse stakeholders need to be explored, while paying enough attention or care to privacy preservation, empowerment of people and inequality. Challenges may include how to keep balance between the overall “optimization” of cities and individual optimization, freedom and equality etc. Definition of the overall objective function can be another challenge. I would like to stimulate discussion even among IT researchers and engineers like us on how we can work to maximize potential capabilities of IT for better society by raising several examples.

Speech Title : Communication Services for Smart Cities and Industry 4.0

 
 
 

AbstractSmart cities and Industry 4.0 require a flexible cooperation, work division and exchange of information among a changing group of participants, which cannot be sufficiently supported by traditional communication services. In addition, systems become more and more complex and therefore self-organisation, -configuration and -maintenance as well as intelligent services are needed to ensure their efficient work. As those systems shall learn from their environment and a set of rules of how to act in a suitable manner, a new kind of communication among the machines and between the machines and their environment is needed in a decentralised system architecture.
The talk intends to work out and present new communication principles and in particular focus on the so called 'vibrant group communication'. Also, some aspects of secure communication will be addressed in the talk and a need and an idea for a hardware-based security approach will be given.

Speech Title : Development of AI and Conversational Agents in Thailand

 

 
 

Abstract

Recently research on artificial intelligence has become an area of common interest in several communities due to a number of breakthrough technologies, such as deep neural networks (DNN), cyber-physical system, 3D printing, and quantum computing. This talk summarizes the state of the art on research and development in artificial intelligence research in Thailand and also focus on the development of Thai conversational agents. To develop an intelligent agent, discussed are natural language analysis and generation including intent classification, sentiment analysis, parsing, content understanding, knowledge acquisition, dialogue management, planning, and response generation for Thai language processing. Moreover, a number of computational resources needed for constructing a truly intelligence conversational agents, including Thai corpora and natural language processing tools are presented.

Speech Title : Automatic Control through Cyber-Physical System

 
 
 

Abstract This talk is to draw the attention that our way of life will dominate by the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Firstly, a smart object which is an important building block of the internet of things environment is introduced. The smart object provides the properties that it can be identified, monitored and controlled in internet and communication network. The kind of control system that based on this smart object in the internet of things (IoT) environment can be referred as a Cyber-Physical System (CPS). The CPS will be an important control system in the era of digital technology. In the second part, the definition, the usefulness, the applications and the impact of the CPS system will be outlined. Typically, the CPS system is the integration of a physical and engineered system, which is a continuous-time processing system, with a computation (or cyber system) that is a discrete-time processing system. With the communication and data core, the cyber operation process is monitored, coordinated and controlled. In smart manufacturing, cyber twin technology has been developed to improve the production efficiency and accuracy. The concept and application of cyber twin which is the digital simulation of physical product will be explained.
