BGU-NHSA Conference Room (510), Alon Building for Hi-Tech (#37)

The Negev Hi-Tech Faculty Startup Accelerator and the Frenkel Center at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev are proud to announce a lecture in its "Distinguished Guest Lecturer Series" by  Prof. Mirek Kutylowski Wroclaw University of Technology, (Poland).

Title: Electronic Identity -- new trends and opportunities in Europe

Uncertainty remains an important factor influencing the decision-making process; it influences valuable on the accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of algorithms applied. That's why we analyze different types of machine learning tasks (both supervised and unsupervised) from the viewpoint of the influence of uncertainty. In particular, we focus on the reduction of the dimension of the problems with the help of PCA. A significant research effort is devoted to the computational complexity and analytical investigation of the convergence of the RNN. Then we will review the basic medical applications (diagnostics, treatment, and prophylaxis) from the viewpoint of uncertainty and using machine learning models. Models describing diseases and pathologic processes, in particular, will be considered. There will be presented basic uncertainties and machine learning tasks arising in such systems. We will discuss ways to cope with these uncertainties. I will present my efforts and results toward developing machine learning models under uncertainty, published and ongoing. The presentation will not assume prior knowledge in math, medicine or otherwise.

Prof. Vasyl Martsenyuk received a master's degree in applied mathematics and a Ph.D.and D.Sc. degrees in systems analysis and decision making from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Faculty of Cybernetics, Ukraine, in 1993, 1996, and 2005, respectively, and the Dr. Habilitation degree, in 2015. From 1997 to 2015, he was a Professor, the Chair of the Medical Informatics Department, and the Vice-Rector of Ternopil Medical University, Ukraine. In 2015, he received the title of Professor of technical sciences in Poland. In 2015, he joined the Department of Computer Science and Automation, University of Bielsko-Biala, Poland, as a Professor. His current research interests include machine learning, decision making, cyber-physical systems, web-programming, and medical informatics. Prof. Martsenyuk has written more than 70 research papers and five book chapters. He has served on technical program committees of more than 20 conferences and delivered a keynote and plenary lectures on machine learning at 5 conferences and organized multiple professional events.
