Keynote topic: The Unique AI-based Data Science and Analytics for research: Summary, demonstrations and contributions 


This keynote presents the latest research outputs for AI-based Data Science and Analytics services and methods that can be adopted and analyzed in multiple disciplines including healthcare, finance, data center computing, social networks, and weather studies. In particular, research outputs from three different disciplines will be at the center of attention. First, the health informatics service allows us to understand more about tumors, genes and proteins, as well as interpret part of how our human body can function. This includes the study of malignant tumors and genes that are prone to certain types of cancers. The latest research on coronavirus analysis and predictive modeling can be explained. Second, it is financial deep learning, risk modeling and financial computation and algorithms. We can identify the correlation between the current and the past stock movement from the best matching scenarios. Various techniques and results will be discussed in detail. Third, weather analysis of four countries: Kazakhstan, South Korea, the UK and Algeria with different dates and times between August and November 2020 will be presented. Results can show the combined AI and Data Science can compute and visualize weather studies, particularly focusing on temperature distributions in these four countries. Other examples also include social networks and other latest research will be presented. The summary of research contributions in multiple disciplines can justify the significance of AI-based Data Science and Analytics services, demonstrations and contributions.

Speech Title: Research on occluded face recognition model in 3D visualization scene 


Occluded face recognition in 3D visualization scene is based on occluded face recognition and 3D visualization scene as tool face recognition technology. By fusing the image with face in complex two-dimensional scene with the 3D model of the scene, the face image in 3D visualization scene is obtained and recognized. In this new epidemic, similar occluded face recognition technology has played a huge role in crowd control in public places with a large number of people. This paper first introduces the research significance and background of 3D visualization scene and occlusion face recognition, as well as the research status at home and abroad. Then the experimental platform is introduced, and the program code used in face recognition is explained, and the main libraries used are explained. After that, the algorithm model and formula derivation used in 3D video fusion are explained. Finally, combined with 3D fusion and occlusion face recognition, occlusion face recognition in 3D visualization scene is completed.
