Abstract

Assume we are planning to open several chain stores in a city. We wish to locate the stores mutually far away from each other to avoid self-competition. This is one of basic problem for facility location problems, and formally defined as follows. Given a set $P$ of $n$ elements, and a function $d$ that assigns a distance $d(p,q)$ for each pair of elements $p,q \in P$, we want to find a subset $S\subseteq P$ with $|S|=k$ such that $\cost(S)= \min\{ d(p,q) \mid p,q \in S\}$ is maximized. This problem is called the dispersion problem.

Abstract

Recent developments in solid state electronics allow neuromodulation of vestibular system of brain via thermal or galvanic current a distinct possibility. The vestibular system is an evolutionarily ancient system which detects the movement and orientation of the head in relation to rest of the body and the gravitational pull. Nobel Laureate Robert Barany in 1914 demonstrated that the vestibular system can be artificially activated by the currents delivered near he ear canal. Our multi-sectoral US / UK collaboration developed and explored a non-invasive delivery system of currents and its impact on various neurological impairments like migraine, spatial attention in 3 dimensions, balance, consciousness etc. This unique collaboration required partners from electronic engineering, academic psychologists, Industrialists, Neurologists, Rehabilitation therapists from UK & US. The team worked for a decade over 10 clinical trials to refine the development of the oscillatory waveform along with the optimum stimulation parameter, magnitude of the current, optimal Barany angle etc to receive FDA ( US) approval and license to practice in clinical setting in UK & US. The relevance to Bangladesh lies in the fact that there are potentially millions of people here who could benefit from this inexpensive intervention. This method will be cheaper, safer & easier to train compared to other novel modality of neuromodulation which are attempted here , namely transcranial magnetic or Direct Current stimulation over scalp. We wish to explore a research collaboration with engineering & clinical experts in Dhaka in the near future. Dr M Sakel & team will summarise the engineering, clinical, regulatory & cross border team work aspects of such endeavour.

Abstract

This talk introduces Blockchain as an information technology, rather than the implementation of Cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin. Its notable advantages may include complete decentralization, tamperproof, and no meaningful data storage, while maintaining its scalability and simplicity. Its potentials are found in many critical application domains such as Robotics (intelligent automation), Authentication, FinTech (e.g. cashless settlement), and Electronic Health Records. Since this is a newly emerging technology, a gentle yet informative introduction to its advancement is given, as a prelude to the discussion of social and economical impacts with innovative technologies based on Blockchain -- BaaSid as the example. At the end, a new form of entrepreneurship development using Blockchain and Cryptocurrency is introduced (with useful online references and services), for an economy development with insufficient capital or infrastructure.

Abstract

Data streams are continuous flows of data. Examples of data streams include network traffic, sensor data, call center records and so on. Data streams demonstrate several unique properties that together conform to the characteristics of big data (i.e., volume, velocity, variety and veracity) and add challenges to data stream mining. In this talk we will present an organized picture on how to handle various data mining/machine learning techniques in data streams. In addition, we will present a number of stream classification applications such as adaptive website fingerprinting, textual stream analytics (political actor identification over textual stream), attack trace classification using good quality similarity metrics (metric learning) and domain adaptation. This research was funded in part by NSF, NASA, Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), NSA, IBM Research, HPE and Raytheon.

Abstract

Human gait or walking pattern is important biometric cue for human identification and verification. It becomes a strong motion cue for various applications. Researches on healthcare, elderly support, security, gender identification, etc. are progressing rapidly due to the massive installment of video cameras (to understand gait or a person from a distance), as well as, IoT sensor-based systems and wearable devices (for on-body gait analysis). There is a huge progress recently on vision-based gait analysis – because of the availability of GPUs and deep learning-based methods. Sensor-based gait recognition approaches are explored as well in different areas. However, the challenges are complex and diversified, and hence, the progress in these domains are still constrained by a number of genuine challenges. In this keynote speech, some of these scopes and challenges will be highlighted. The talk will highlight on our recent competition, held in the IEEE 12th International Conference on Biometrics (ICB), 2019, where 18 teams registered from 14 countries. Finally, 67 solutions were submitted from 10 teams – for age and gender estimation. Occlusion and other challenges will be presented.

Abstract

Cyber threats are growing and are continuously impacting businesses and the economy worldwide. This presentation will explore the implementation of additional security tools to combat cyber threats when security tools such as firewalls, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), anti-virus software, encryption, and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) are readily in place within an organization. Organizations face the probability of being hacked because of weak and inadequate cybersecurity implementations. Digital criminals are responsible for increased network breaches using elusive security tools to penetrate secure environments with sophistication. Cyberattacks are continually increasing due to the sophistication and innovation of cyber attackers. The methodology used for this qualitative study used an open-ended interview format of 15 cybersecurity professionals based on their security experiences, credentials, and titles. The data analysis reveals many vulnerable areas to reinforce against cybercriminals, the impact of insider threats, inadequate employee training, negligence, and lack of monetary investment in cybersecurity, and management support. The research findings highlighted standard security tools the participants used to protect their data against potential cyberattacks according to the security professionals interviewed. The participants felt that the utilization of the PAM-based detection developed by the IBM X-Force IRIS systems, AI (artificial intelligence), air-gapping systems, website security blockers, cyber kill chain adoption, and using plain text documents rather than formats such as .doc, .docx, and .pdf, can help with the identification and prevention of cyber exploits. Cybercrime is a multifaceted issue; no single solution can eliminate the problem. Technology is always evolving, and advanced new applications and tools are developed worldwide to give businesses and regular users the ability to apply new techniques. Finally, this presentation will also highlight job opportunities in the area of Cybersecurity.

Abstract

In recent years deposal of pharmaceutical wastes has become a major problem globally. Therefore, it is necessary to removes pharmaceutical waste from the municipal as well as industrial effluents before its discharge. The convectional wastewater and biological treatments are generally failed to separate different drugs from wastewater streams. Thus, heterogeneous photocatalysis process becomes lucrative method for reduction of detrimental effects of pharmaceutical compounds. The main disadvantage of the process is the reuse or recycle of photocatalysis is a tedious job. In this work, the degradation of aqueous solution of chlorhexidine digluconate (CHD), an antibiotic drug, by heterogeneous photocatalysis was study using supported TiO2 nanoparticle. The major concern of this study is to bring down the limitations of suspension mode heterogeneous photocatalysis by implementation of immobilized TiO2 with help of calcium alginate beads. The alginate supported catalyst beads was characterized by scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM/EDAX) as well as the characteristic crystalline forms of TiO2 nanoparticle was confirmed by XRD. The degradation efficiency of TiO2 impregnated alginate beads (TIAB) was compared with the performance of free TiO2 suspension. Although, the degradation efficiency was reduced considerably using TIAB but the recycle and reuse of catalyst was increased quite appreciably. The kinetic parameters related to this work have also been measure. Moreover, to study the susceptibility of the present system photocatalysis of other three drugs ibuprofen (IBP), atenolol (ATL) and carbamazepine (CBZ) has been carried out using immobilized TiO2. The continuous mode operation in PBPR has ensured the applicability of alginate beads along with TiO2 in wastewater treatment. The variation of residence time has significant impact on the performance of PBPR.
