Keynote Speaker 1:  Masafumi Hagiwara (Keio University)



Title:  Sympathetic Intelligence

Abstract:  It is well known that we, human-beings, have three fundamental elements in our mind: intelligence, emotion, and intention. Nowadays, artificial intelligence (AI) has attracted much attention. Some people predict that a lot of jobs will be replaced by machines with AI. Machines with only intelligence are not sufficient and maybe even dangerous to human-beings. This is because emotional and intentional aspects are ignored. I believe that truly human-friendly machines should have both intelligence and emotion model. Highly intelligent machines should communicate with human-beings naturally and pleasantly. In order to make such a communication, Sympathetic Intelligence should be considered. Sympathetic Intelligence is composed of intelligent and emotional aspects and it means high intelligence with the ability of considering the other people's situation and feelings properly.

Keynote Speaker 2:  Witold Pedrycz (University of Alberta)



Title:  Granular Data Analytics

Abstract:  The apparent challenges in data analytics inherently associate with large volumes of data, data variability, and an evident quest for transparency and interpretability of obtained results. We advocate that information granules play a pivotal role in addressing these key challenges. We demonstrate that a framework of Granular Computing along with a diversity of its formal settings offers a badly needed conceptual and algorithmic environment that becomes instrumental for data analytics.

We elaborate on selected ways in which information granules and their processing address help in coping with abundance of data. A suitable perspective built with the aid of information granules is advantageous in realizing a suitable level of abstraction and forming sound, problem-oriented tradeoffs among precision of results, easiness of their interpretation, value of the results and their stability. All those aspects emphasize importance of actionability and interestingness of the produced findings.

Discussed are various ways of forming information granules carried out on a basis of abundant data with the mechanisms of information granulation applied to the reduction of amount of data and dimensionality of data. The development of information granules of higher type and higher order is advocated and their unique role in realizing a hierarchy of processing and coping with a distributed nature of available data is presented. The detailed investigations are focused on selected problems of building auto-encoders in architectures of deep learning, and evolution of information granules in describing dynamics of data streams.

Title:  Robust Design Optimization Methods for High Quality Producible Electrical Drive Systems

Abstract:  Electrical machines and drive systems account for about 46% of all global electricity consumption, resulting in about 6,040 Mt of CO2 emissions. This is by far the largest portion of electricity use, easily outstripping lighting, which takes up to 19% of the world’s demand. Therefore, the energy efficiency of electrical drive systems is very important for the energy conservation, environment and sustainable development of the world.

Electrical drive systems are key components in many modern appliances, as well as industry equipment and systems. In order to achieve the best design objectives, such as high performance and low cost, various optimization methods have been developed for design optimization of electrical machines and drive systems. The traditional design optimization is at the component level, e.g. optimization of a motor design or the parameters of a control algorithm. However, modern appliances or systems demand that the drive systems be specifically designed and optimized to provide full support to their best functionalities with multiple performance indicators. For such applications, an application-oriented multi-objective system-level design optimization method is developed. Because of the complexity of drive system design that involves many disciplines, such as electromagnetics, materials, mechanical dynamics including structural, thermal, and vibrational analyses, power electronic convertors, and control algorithms, a multi-level optimization method was developed by the authors to improve the effectiveness of the optimization of electrical machines as well as drive systems.

On the other hand, the real quality of motors and drives in mass production highly depends on the available machinery technology and those unavoidable variations or uncertainties in the manufacturing process, assembly process and operation environment. The manufacturing precision and tolerances are two main issues in the manufacturing process, including mainly the variations of material characteristics, such as magnetization faults in terms of magnitude and magnetization direction for permanent magnets (PMs), and density and permeability of soft-magnetic-composite (SMC) stator cores manufactured by powder metallic moulding technology, and dimensional variations of parts of drive systems, such as the rotor, stator, winding and PMs. The assembly process variations mainly include the lamination of silicon steel sheets, and misalignments of stator, rotor and PMs. The operating uncertainties mainly include the load variations, changes of electrical and mechanical parameters, such as the changes of resistance and inductance due to the operational temperature rise, and fluctuations of drive voltage.

Limited by these variations in the practical machinery technology, an aggressively optimized design may be difficult for high quality batch production and end up with high rejection rates. Similarly, variations in system parameters and operational conditions may also lead to sub-optimal performance, and in a severe case, even instability. To solve this type of problems, the methodology of Six-Sigma quality control can be adopted to develop a robust design optimization method to guarantee the high quality batch production of drive systems.

Based on many years of research experience, this talk aims to present a brief introduction of efficient application-oriented, multi-disciplinary, multi-objective, and multi-level design optimization methods for advanced high quality electrical drive systems. The multi-disciplinary analysis includes materials, electromagnetics, thermotics, mechanics, power electronics, applied mathematics, machinery technology, and quality control and management.

BIO: Prof. J. G. Zhu received his BE in 1982 from Jiangsu Institute of Technology, China, ME in 1987 from Shanghai University of Technology, China, and Ph.D in 1995 from University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia, all in electrical engineering. He currently holds the positions of Professor of Electrical Engineering and Head for School of Electrical, Mechanical and Mechatronic Systems at UTS, Australia. His research interests include electromagnetics, magnetic properties of materials, electrical machines and drives, power electronics, green energy systems and smart micro grids.


Keynote Speaker 4:  Qun Xiong Zhu (Beijing University of Chemical Technology, China)



Title:  Data-Driven Intelligent Modeling and Its Industrial Applications

Abstract: With the increasing complexity of the industrial process systems, it is more and more difficult to establish an accurate mechanistic model. Modern measurement techniques enable large amounts of process data to be easily collected, stored and analyzed. Computational intelligence expands the traditional computing model and then provides a new solution to solve complex problems. The data-driven intelligent modeling method has become one of the research hotspots. As a kind of artificial neural networks, the feedforward network has attracted important attention from researchers. In this report, we will mainly discuss some Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) models based on the hierarchical structure design and the double parallel structure design as well as their applications to modeling complex chemical processes. Then we will further provide a data envelopment analysis combined with partial least square regression based double parallel ELM model for energy efficiency evaluation. Case studies are carried out and the simulation results are given and analyzed.

BIO: Dr. Qunxiong Zhu is now a Professor and the Dean of the College of Information Science and Technology at the Beijing University of Chemical Technology, China. He is also the director of the Engineering Research Center of Intelligent Process System Engineering, Ministry of Education of China. He has been the President of the Beijing Association of Automation, an executive member of Chinese Association of Automation (CAA), the Vice-Chairman of Technical Committee on Process Control of CAA, a member of Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China (CIESC), the Vice-Chairman of Technical Committee on IT application of CIESC.

Invited Talk 1: Neurological Therapeutic Medical Robot, PARO, for Non-pharmacological Therapy

Speaker: Takanori Shibata

Af    Chief Senior Research Scientist, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology(AIST)  

 Professor, School of Computing, Tokyo Institute of Technology

 Visiting Fellow, the Age Lab., Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Abstract:   Robot therapy, which uses robots as a substitution for animals in “animal therapy,” is a new robot application in the fields of welfare    and patient care. The baby seal robot “PARO” began development for robot therapy in 1993. PARO was commercialized in Japan in 2005, and in Europe and the U.S. in 2009, and about 4,500 PAROs have been used in hospitals and care facilities in more than 30 countries. Recent clinical trials including randomized controlled trials have revealed that robot therapy has a similar effect on patients as animal therapy. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) certified PARO as a “neurological therapeutic medical device.” PARO can be used in various kinds of therapy such as people with dementia, palliative care for cancer patients, and children and adolescences with developmental and psychological disorder. PARO can reduce usage of psychotropic medications as non-pharmacological therapy. PARO can also reduce burden of care and nursing, and social cost of medical and welfare service.

 

Invited Talk 2: International co-operation to challenge the 4th Industrial Revolution based on intelligent science and industrial technology

Speaker: Jianping Jing

CEO, KTI Semiconductor Manufacturing Machine Co., Ltd

Invited Talk 4: Kukai-method based Idea Creation Support System

Speaker: Fangyan DONG

Associate Professor, Education Academy of Computational Life Sciences (ACLS), Tokyo Institute of Technology

Abstract: Haiku is a short form of Japanese poetry, and a Kukai refers to a gathering for creating haiku. We propose a new approach based on the Kukai-method, motivated by the five stages in the process of creating haiku, including: proposal, recording, selection, presentation, evaluation, for creating innovative ideas in the perspective of kansei-engineering. Furthermore, we develop a support system that implements our approach and validates its efficiency. The approach can be applied to promoting business processes, developing a new product in a company, etc. The developed system is the first system that is equipped with the method of Kukai. The traditional KJ method, that people make a direct discuss over an issue with paper sheets, requires that participants be familiar with the method. The proposed approach only need participants to have access to the Internet, and allows a larger range of people from the novices to the experts to participate. The efficiency of our system through well-designed experiments is confirmed.
