Speech Title: Research on data and knowledge driven ensemble intelligence and its applications in Smart Healthcare

Abstract: The existing intelligent computing methods can only be applied in single and static scenarios with sufficient and high-quality training samples. Without the support of domain knowledge, they can not realize intelligent activities with high accuracy and strong robustness in complex environments. This report takes ensemble learning as the research route and focuses on the key scientific issues in the field of machine learning such as deep learning, transfer learning, clustering learning, knowledge graphs, etc., to introduce the basic theoretical research findings and their applications in Smart Healthcare.

BIO: The primary research focuses on the theory and applications of partial differential equations, as well as computer science and communication. Research interests encompass fluid mechanics, numerical solutions of partial differential equations, information security, image processing, and data analysis. My previous work includes topics such as one-dimensional compressible flow and hyperbolic conservation laws, multiple solutions of nonlinear elliptic partial differential equations, global solutions of nonlinear parabolic partial differential equations, homogenization theory for evolutionary equations like semilinear parabolic, Schrodinger, and wave equations, alongside computer security and image processing. Additionally, I have made substantial contributions to the theory of reflexive spaces in the field of functional analysis.

Speech Title: The Mathematical theories,methods and systems for the automation ofpathological diagnosis

Abstract: Characteristic pathological images composed of organic combinations of differenttypes of cells are the cornerstone of pathological diagnosis, and applying mathematical theories and methods to define these characteristic images is the starting point of this research. The project intends to explore and improve key mathematical theories and methods for pathological images, including pathological image analysis based on partial differential equations; pathological image secure transmission method based on linear feedback shift registers for remote pathological diagnosis, pathological image privacy protection algorithm based on secure multi-party computation; pathological image and diagnosis report annotation method based on semantic segmentation, parallel optimization of multi-task learning and remote application; etc. In order to apply the above methods to tumor pathological diagnosis, we focus more on solving urgent medical problems such as intraoperative rapid pathological diagnosis including intelligent diagnosis system of tumor pathological images and remote intraoperative pathological image transmission and security; and establishing mathematical models of tumor evolution driven by tumor microenvironment to provide new mathematical tools and application paths for elucidating tumor evolution mechanism and disease pathological classification. The research applies mathematical theories and methods to clinical pathological diagnosis, and helps to establish a new paradigm of research and application through the combination of mathematics and medicine.

Speech Title: Research on intelligent diagnostic technology of endoscopic images

Abstract: At present, endoscopic screening technology is the common means of examining gastrointestinal (GI) tract diseases. The diagnostic accuracy, however, relies heavily on the clinical experience of the endoscopist. Unfortunately, cultivating an exceptional endoscopist takes a lengthy period, resulting in a serious shortage of endoscopists in China and their concentration in developed regions. Therefore, it is imperative to develop a computer-aided diagnosis technology based on deep learning to achieve automatic analysis of lesions to help endoscopists precisely judge GI tract diseases. This report will introduce our work on intelligent diagnosis technology of endoscopic images, including a multi-task model that can simultaneously achieve disease classification and segmentation, and improve the performance of the model by taking advantage of convolutional neural networks and Transformers. model performance.

Speech Title: Intelligent Healthcare and AIGC

Abstract: AI in Computer Vision and Multimodal Data Analysis has garnered significant attention in recent years. This field involves utilizing computer vision and machine learning techniques to analyze various forms of multimodal data, including images, videos, audios, texts, and sensory data. AI-assisted computer vision has been widely applied in object detection, image classification, semantic segmentation, and 3D reconstruction. Meanwhile, the emergence of technologies such as ChatGPT has brought new developments and possibilities to the field of intelligent healthcare, but also new uncertainties and ethical issues. How to use this technology correctly and reasonably has become one of the most urgent issues today.
