Title: Advances for The Automatic Discovery of Interesting Patterns in Data
Data play a crucial role in educational institutions, businesses and many other organizations. More and more data are collected and stored, but analyzing it to gain insights into educational and business processes remains a key challenge as data can be complex, heterogeneous and changing over time. It is desirable to be able to extract information or models from data that are easily understandable by humans. Based on these objectives, this talk will discuss the use of data mining algorithms for discovering interesting and useful patterns in data generated from intelligent systems and other applications.
The talk will first briefly review early study on designing algorithms for identifying frequent patterns in data. Then, an overview of recent challenges and advances will be presented to identify other types of interesting patterns in more complex data. Topics that will be discussed include high utility patterns, locally interesting patterns, and periodic patterns, and some applications. Lastly, the SPMF open-source software will be mentioned and opportunities related to the combination of pattern mining algorithms with traditional artificial intelligence techniques for intelligent systems will be discussed.

Title: Power of AI-Methods and Algorithms for Decision Making
Artificial Intelligence will assist retailers in making better revenue forecasts in the future by providing better customer service, and retargeting customers who have left. Customers can have a simpler, more streamlined, more secure, personalized, and quicker shopping experience than ever before thanks to AI. With these newly developed technologies, they can offer a variety of advantages, including automated processes, targeted potential buyers, increased revenue, and etc. Artificial Intelligence can improve the customer experience by providing desired personalization and can also assist in product recommendations. Customer focus searches can be generated using AI and machine learning. For online shoppers, search results can be restricted, contextualized, and eventually enhanced. Ecommerce businesses will now generate more leads thanks to AI technology intelligence. They can use AI-based ads, sales, and CRM solutions to benefit from predictive marketing. Finally, AI and machine learning will significantly improve e-commerce sales andcustomer loyalty.

Title: Visual Immersive Mathematics
Information visualization creates images from abstract data by interpreting them geometrically. It may require skills of making images with raw mathematics while the graphics content is now mostly created by using sophisticated licensed software. Existing methods for teaching geometry and computer graphics are usually restricted to a limited class of geometric objects, most of which are predefined in the system. As a result, fewer and fewer developers are capable of using procedurally-based visualisation in which mathematical formulas are used for defining complex geometric shapes, transformations and motions as well as for colouring the geometry. The talk discusses how to educate learners to see geometry and colours beyond simple mathematical formulas and how to represent geometric shapes and motions from first principles by digital sampling mathematical functions. The talk is based on the speaker’s recent book “Making Images with Mathematics” published by Springer Nature and his nearly 30 years of experience of teaching computer graphics, visualisation and virtual reality courses for computer science and engineering students. The talk is illustrated by the speakers multi-platform software tool Shape Explorer which is available for free downloading.
