Abstract:

Data is known as the new oil for the twenty-first century, being the necessary raw ingredient for powering artificial intelligence.With the proliferation of computer technologies, the amount of data we generate will continue to grow.Data will play an important role in our lives in this data-driven artificial intelligence era.In this talk, I will give an introduction on the applications of data for AI using simple examples.We will discuss about the opportunities, as well as the dangers of living in the big data era.

Speaker bio:

See-Kiong Ng (Ph.D. Carnegie Mellon University) is a Professor of Practice at the Department of Computer Science of the School of Computing at National University of Singapore (NUS), and the Deputy Director of the university’s Institute of Data Science. See-Kiong obtained his Bachelor (1989), Masters (1993), and Ph.D. (1998) degrees in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University and a Masters (1991) degree in Artificial Intelligence from University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining NUS in 2016, See-Kiong was a Programme Director of the Urban Systems Initiative by the Science and Engineering Research Council of the Agency of Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), and the founding head and principle scientist of its Data Mining Department. Currently, See-Kiong’s mission at NUS is to leverage his data science and AI expertise for transdisciplinary and translational research into important real-life problems and education of the next generation of data scientists. From using the computation of data to better understand the biology of the human body, See-Kiong is using machine learning and artificial intelligence to understand the “biology” of complex human cities and societies and creating real-world impact with the science of data.

  

讲题:从数据到AI

讲座大纲:

数据是二十一世纪的新石油,是人工智能不可缺少的原材料。随着电脑科技的广泛应用,我们所产生、创造的数据量将源源不断地增长。在这以大数据为基础的人工智能时代,数据将在我们的生活里扮演重要的角色。这个讲座将介绍什么是大数据,用简单的例子讲述大数据的开发与利用。我们也将一起讨论如何迎接大数据时代带来的新契机,以及其可能引发的新问题。

主讲人简介:

黄思强博士为新加坡国立大学计算学院计算机科学系教授,新加坡国立大学数据科学研究所副所长。1986年,他获得新加坡国家电脑局海外奖学金赴美国学习,先后获得卡内基梅隆大学的计算机科学学士(1989年)、硕士(1993年)和博士(1998年)学位,以及宾夕法尼亚大学的人工智能硕士学位(1990年)。黄博士曾担任新加坡科技研究局(A*STAR)组织的城市体系计划主任,并担任了新科研信息通信研究所数据分析部门的创始负责人和首席科学家。目前,黄博士于国大新设立的数据科学研究所,着力为新加坡培养新一代杰出的数据科学家,并与多个行业与公共机构进行成功的研究合作,以数据科学开发实用的人工智能技术。

作为一名经验丰富的数据科学家,从使用数据挖掘和机器学习来揭示人体的生物学(生物信息学),到使用大数据和人工智能来理解复杂的人类城市(智能城市),黄博士以数据的科学与应用证明了数据中的巨大价值。
