Abstract: With the emergence of social network, Internet of Things (IoTs), and outsourced cloud computing, we are embracing an era of big data. Big data analytics can bring huge cost savings, and identify hidden patterns in the big data. However, big data also has a big issue of privacy concern as big data analytics can reveal individual’s personal behaviour, and other sensitive information. Therefore, it is vital to have suitable techniques for privacy-preserving big data analytics. In this talk, we will report on the latest developments in this field and discuss open challenges for future research.

In recent years, we have witnessed technological breakthroughs in the fields
of deep learning and image understanding. In this talk, I share
a few examples of my recent work on machine learning based image
understanding and medical image analysis. In the first part on
image understanding, I present projects on fine-grained image
classification based on either transfer learning or weakly
supervised learning, large-scale hierarchical image
classification, language-guided object identification in images
as well as weakly supervised learning for object detection and
semantic segmentation. In the second part on medical image
analysis, I present projects on 3D medical volume segmentation
based on global guidance and progressive fusion as well as
automated chest X-ray interpretation using mixed supervised

Abstract: We begin with a brief survey of current trends of big data analytics and present some applications in biology, business and industry. As a powerful artificial intelligence tool, rough set theory (RST) is of fundamental importance in dealing with many aspects of processing information systems and problem solving in big data analytics. We represent a data set of an information system as a table and show how we pass from classical RST to variable precision generalized rough set theory (VPGRS). We use minimal neighborhood systems to characterize lower and upper approximations for VPGRS-model. Furthermore, we extend RST to fuzzy rough set theory via a general approach to the fuzzification of rough sets. We develop a generalized fuzzy rough approximation by incorporating VPGRS with fuzzy rough sets and show how to determine the discernibility threshold for a reflexive relational decision system in the variable precision generalized fuzzy rough set model. As applications, we propose some parallel distributed computations to analyze the systems. It has many applications in a number of diﬀerent areas, such as engineering, environment, banking, medicine, bioinformatics, pattern recognition, data mining, machine learning and others. We also use different techniques to compare some gene variants and obtain approximation and detail information of the numerical representations of gene variants.
