Title: Spatio-Temporal Data Prediction for Smart City

Abstract: In smart cities, spatio-temporal data contains rich information and intrinsic value, which is of great significance. Through the analysis and exploration of urban spatial-temporal data, it can address typical challenges such as traffic congestion, thus providing invaluable support for the construction of smart cities. In this talk, I will introduce deep learning, multi-task learning, multi-view learning and transfer learning to fully extract the nonlinear and dynamic spatial-temporal dependencies within data. Several novel deep learning models are devised and the effectiveness of the proposed models is shown through the demands of traffic prediction.

Title: Graph Learning for Personalised Recommendations
Abstarct: Personalised recommendations play a crucial role in enhancing user experience on various online platforms. Traditional recommender systems usually rely on user-item interaction and collaborative filtering techniques, which have limitations in capturing the complex dependencies and dynamics of user preferences. In recent years, with their advantages in handling non-Euclidean spatial data, graph learning methods have been widely applied. In recommender systems, graph learning can leverage the rich structural information in behavioural graphs to effectively learn complex user preferences. In the following, we first provide a comprehensive review of graph learning techniques for personalised recommendation, and then introduce cutting-edge GNN schemes, including fine-grained interactive graph neural networks for session recommendation and heterogeneous graph neural networks for news recommendation. Finally, we outline several research challenges and potential directions for future developments in graph learning for personalised recommendations.
