Health/Infrastructure Monitoring and Robots for Aging Society
Professor Isao Shimoyama
  • Toyama Prefectural University, Japan
  • Professor Emeritus University of Tokyo, Japan
Over time, the human body and structures deteriorate. Human vital signs for monitoring deterioration include heart rate and blood glucose levels. For structures, acoustic emission is used. My presentation will introduce the field of the monitoring, what methods are used, what kind of data is taken, how large the data can be, and what meaningful conclusions can be drawn from it. Then, the presentation will show robots for assisting people in their daily lives that will be utilized in an aging society with a declining birthrate.
Isao Shimoyama was born in Japan in 1955. He received the B.E., M.E, and Dr. of Engineering degrees in mechanical engineering from University of Tokyo in 1977, 1979, and 1982, respectively. He joined University of Tokyo in 1982 and was Dean of Graduate School of Information Science and Technology from 2007 to 2010. He was also Professor, Director of Information and Robot Technology (IRT) Research Initiative for aging society at University of Tokyo. He is currently President, Toyama Prefectural University, and Professor Emeritus, University of Tokyo, working with interest in Robotics, MEMS sensors for robots.

Learning in the Real World with Low Quality and/or Scarce Data
Professor José M F Moura
  • Carnegie Mellon University, United States
Deep Learning (DL) has shown significant improvements in computer vision and natural language with ever larger and more sophisticated deep models and training data. But in many applications, data is low quality and annotated data is scarce. In this keynote, we discuss and identify some of these issues, propose some solutions, and illustrate our results with benchmark datasets and real-world applications.
José M. F. Moura is the Philip L. and Marsha Dowd University Professor at CMU, with interests in signal processing and data science. A detector in two of his patents with Alek Kavcic is found in over 60% of the disk drives of all computers sold worldwide in the last 15 years (4 billion and counting)–leading to a US $750 Million settlement between CMU and Marvell. He was the 2019 President and CeO of IEEE, the largest professional society in the world with its 420 thousand members. He was Editor in Chief for the Transactions on SP. He is Fellow of the IEEE, AAAS, and the US National Academy of Inventors, holds honorary doctorate degrees from the University of Strathclyde (UK) and Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal), he is a member of the Academy of Sciences of Portugal, and a member of the US National Academy of Engineering. He received the Great Cross of the Order of The Infante D. Henrique bestowed to him by the President of the Republic of Portugal.
