Conferencia de Vincenzo Piuri : “Ambient intelligence : Convergence or artificial intelligence, machine learning, biometrics, cloud computing, internet-of-things”

Jueves 12 de julio 14:30hs, Salón Gris (piso 7, salón 727) – Facultad de Ingeniería, Julio Herrera y Reissig 565

El Instituto de Ingeniería Eléctrica de la Facultad de Ingeniería de la Universidad de la República invita a la siguiente charla : “Ambient intelligence: convergence or artificial intelligence, machine learning, biometrics, cloud computing, internet-of-things” por Vincenzo Piuri

Abstract :

Various technologies are nowadays converging to support effective infrastructures for ambient intelligence and smart living. Artificial intelligence can provide flexible techniques for designing and implementing monitoring and control systems, which can be configured from behavioral examples or by mimicking approximate reasoning processes to achieve adaptable systems. Machine learning can be effective in extracting knowledge form data and learn the actual and desired behaviors and needs of individuals as well as the environment to support informed decisions in managing the environment itself and its adaptation to the people’s needs. Biometrics can help in identifying individuals or groups: their profiles can be used for adjusting the behavior of the environment. Machine learning can be exploited for dynamically learning the preferences and needs of individuals and enrich/update the profile associated either to such individual or to the group. Cloud computing environments will be instrumental in allowing for world-wide availability of knowledge about the preferences and needs of individuals as well as services for ambient intelligence to build applications easily. This talk will analyze the opportunities offered by these technologies to support the realization of adaptable operations and intelligent services for smart living, and smart working in an ambient intelligent infrastructures. Some examples will be briefly analyzed in domotics, entertainment, commerce, transportation, augmented reality, health care, industrial manufacturing (with examples to wood industry, mechanical industry and photovoltaics), and biometrics for e-government.
