NASLOV: Behavioural and Cognitive Modeling in Recommender Systems

POVZETEK:

Recommender systems are systems that help users in decision making situations where there is an abundance of choices. We can find them in our everyday lives, for example in online shops. State-of-the-art research  in recommender systems has shown the benefits of behavioural modeling. Behavioural modeling means that we use past ratings, purchases, clicks etc. to model the user preferences. However, behavioural modeling is not able to capture certain aspects of the user preferences. In this talk I will show how the usage of complementary research in cognitive models, such as personality and emotions, can benefit recommender systems.

NASLOV: Human Centric Immersive Environments. Challenges and perspectives.

POVZETEK:

Over the last few years, disciplines such as Virtual & Augmented Reality, Computer Aided Design, and Human Factors, have undergone a profound evolution essentially driven by ever-increasing computational power and by availability of new hardware and software technologies.  Arbitrary shaped non‐flat displays, portable augmented reality glasses, micro-projection units, portable marker-less gesture tracking systems, increasingly accurate biometric sensors, and brain-machine interfaces are becoming commodities. Previously, these technologies, were only available in “Big” research labs, but are now entering the mainstream market causing a profound paradigm shift for the general public level. This means not only adapting old interaction schemas but it will call for the development of brand new interaction mechanisms that can account for complex technological ecosystem issues.
In his talk, Dr. De Amicis will present his research on how users perceive, understand, and interact with real and digital objects during an immersive experience. First, he will discuss some of the results achieved concerning the design of a multimodal experience combining sketches, gestures, and speech, to accomplish design tasks in different contexts, ranging from lightweight near-to-the-eye displays, to large-scale displays and immersive environments. He will also present his research on the design of geo-intelligent complex visualization systems and products and related services, addressing aspects such as interactive spatial data infrastructure, context awareness, and highly dynamic interaction. The second part of his talk will be devoted, to describing his current and future research plan on how Mixed Reality, allows the interaction with hybrid space with varying degrees of interaction allowing the user to enter a highly effective information environment which heightens data awareness and understanding.

NASLOV: On the Graph Search Trees
--------------------------------------------------

POVZETEK:

Graph searches and the corresponding search trees can exhibit important structural properties and are used in various graph algorithms. We present various graph search algorithms, such as breadth first search (BFS), depth first search (DFS), their lexicographic versions (LBFS, LDFS), maximal neighborhood search (MNS) and maximum cardinality search (MCS). The problem of deciding whether a given spanning tree of a graph is a search tree of a particular search on this graph was introduced by Hagerup and Nowak in 1985, and independently by Korach and Ostfeld in 1989 where the authors showed that this problem is efficiently solvable for DFS trees. We show that the search tree problem is polynomial-time solvable for LDFS, in contrast to LBFS, MCS, and MNS, where we show the NP-completeness.

NASLOV: Fog Computing for Smart Services and Applications

The quadrumvirate technologies – Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud and Blockchain are currently converging with the aim to facilitate numerous new smart services and applications. They are the substrate of Fog computing. Fog computing is an architecture that uses edge devices to carry out a substantial amount of computation, storage, communication locally and thus addresses the requirements of Big Data pipelines, which start at the Edge of the computing network and may run across multiple computing tiers up to various public or private Cloud providers. With Big Data pipelines implemented by means of Fog computing it is increasingly possible to realise dependable smart environments. As its application potential is vast, the industrial interest is immense. The DECENTER (https://www.decenter-project.eu/) EU-Korean project currently develops a new Fog Computing platform that will support various smart applications. The talk will focus on the use cases, design and architecture of DECENTER.

Veljko Pejović is an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. His interests include mobile computing, HCI, resource-efficient computing, and the interaction of technology and society. His work on modelling user movement and communication behaviour from mobile call records won the 2013 Orange D4D Challenge, while his work on interruptibility modelling resulted in the best paper nomination at the ACM UbiComp'14 conference.

NASLOV: Cognitive Load Inference for Ubiquitous Computing Adaptation

From not disturbing a focused programmer, to entertaining a restless commuter waiting for a train, personal ubiquitous computing devices could greatly enhance their interaction with humans, should they only be aware of the user’s cognitive load. While mobile sensing and machine learning lead to impressive advances in the inference of human movement, physical activity, routines, and other behavioural aspects, inferring cognitive load remains challenging due to a subtle manifestation of a user's mental engagement via vital signal reactions. These signals are often captured with obtrusive, expensive, purpose-built equipment, preventing seamless cognitive load inference for human - ubiquitous computing interaction adaptation. In our work we aim to enable large-scale unobtrusive cognitive load inference. In the talk I will present our experiences from different user studies in which we built and evaluated cognitive load inference models relying on data coming from a commodity smart phone, a wearable sensing device, and a software-defined-radio-based wireless radar. Finally, I will present our guidelines for future efforts in cognitive load inference and argue for closer interdisciplinary collaboration in this exciting research domain.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NASLOV: How overall coverage of an association rule learning classifier affects its accuracy?

Classification and association rule are two important technologies in data mining. Researchers have recently proposed several classification techniques based on the concept of association rules (also known as CBA-based methods). Experimental results show that in average the CBA-based approaches could achieve higher accuracy than some of traditional classification methods. Associative classification (AC) is a data mining approach that combines classification and association rule to build classification models (classifiers).
In this seminar, we will present associative classification, where class association rules are generated and analyzed to build a simple, compact, understandable and relatively accurate classifier. Furthermore, we find the overall coverage and average rule coverage of the classifier that affects its the accuracy. We compare the accuracies our method that uses constrained exhaustive search with that of some “classical” classification rule learning algorithms that use greedy heuristic search on some “real-life” datasets. We have performed experiments on 11 datasets from UCI Machine Learning Database Repository. Overall coverage shows the power of the classifier. Experimental evaluations show that our proposed method outperforms Naive Bayes and C4.5 on average accuracy.

Augmented Reality (AR) has been studied for more than 20 years. Nowadays we can see a lot of AR applications such as PokemonGO. Some people think that AR technologies are almost completed and it has moved to a practical phase. But it is not true because current AR applications are not ideal style of AR. AR researchers still have to make the next breakthrough. In this talk, I would like to introduce my past works on AR and then explain my idea about what AR researchers have to do for the next breakthrough. After that I will briefly talk about my current research works which I am expecting to make the next breakthrough for AR.

NASLOV: The process of strategic planning

This lecture is integral part of the PKP IoT Kakis project as transfer of knowledge. The lecture is about business strategic planing, focusing on SWOT and its new-fashioned counterparts: SOAR and PEST analysis. SWOT is a self-questioning analysis that helps firms to identify their strengths and weaknesses. It is also used to spot possible opportunities and potential threats from the environment and its competitors. This lecture focuses on the possibilities of improvement of the strategic management with emphasis on most common mistakes. Moreover, modern trends in strategic planning promote that SWOT should go hand in hand with SOAR and PEST analysis. SOAR is a strategic planning framework that helps firms focus on current strengths and opportunities and create a vision for future aspirations. On the other hand, PEST is an analytical framework for understanding external factors that influence a firm's business.

NASLOV: Linear algebra, network science and optimization (LANSO) activities

POVZETEK:

Linear algebra, network science and optimization (LANSO) are strongly related fields of research. The fact that they intersect provides us with the convenience to formalize problems in one of them using the language of the others. Instead of diving into one particular topic we plan to give an overview of the scientific work done in our group. Hence, we will discuss some research questions related to community detection, influence maximization, stability of centrality measures and their applications on e.g. financial networks.

NASLOV: A Blockchain Based Edge Computing Architecture for the Internet of Things

Edge computing has been gaining momentum in the context of the Internet of Things due to its advantages such as low bandwidth utilization, responsiveness, scalability and privacy preservation. However, typical edge computing approaches still rely on centralized solutions like Kubernetes to orchestrate application execution. This design choice introduces a single point of failure that makes the network vulnerable and introduces other limitations.
On this seminar, the presenter will describe some experiments to evaluate the performance of a decentralized consensus-based algorithm combined with a shared data structure over a distributed network of sensors deployed in a cultural heritage building.
The proposed implementation shows that the architecture, albeit simplified, is feasible. This indicates research directions towards designing better migration algorithms, optimizing shared data synchronization, privacy preservation, and ultimately solving data locality problems.

ČAS/PROSTOR: 3. junij 2019 ob 16.00 v učilnici FAMNIT-Muzejski3

Tokrat bosta izjemoma 2 predavanji.

NASLOV 1. PREDAVANJA: Proizvodni informacijski sistemi z vidika pretoka podatkov

PREDAVATELJ: Jan BRATINA

Jan Bratina je študent magistrskega študijskega programa Računalništvo in informatika na UP FAMNIT in bo na seminarju predstavil svoje delo v okviru predmeta Raziskovalni seminar.

POVZETEK

V trenutnem razvoju industrije igrajo veliko vlogo prav proizvodni informacijski sistemi. Namen tega članka je predstavitev proizvodnih informacijskih sistemov in razumevanje njihovih vlog. Predvsem je pomembno razumevanje pretoka podatkov med sistemi, zato je predstavljena tudi implementacija SCADA sistema na določeno proizvodno linijo. Pri predstavitvi te implementacije največ pozornosti posvetimo prav pretoku informacij med PLC krmilniki ter SCADA sistemom in kasnejšemu prenosu teh informacij na višji nivo, kjer jih obdela MES sistem. Ampak SCADA sistem ne obsega samo komunikacije s PLC krmilniki, zato so predstavljene tudi funkcionalne in nefunkcionalne zahteve za implementacijo SCADA sistema. Nato bo predstavljen še uporabniški vmesnik in natančen potek komunikacije SCADA sistema s PLC krmilnikom.

NASLOV 2. PREDAVANJA: SCADA sistemi -- implementacija in možnosti uporabe

PREDAVATELJ: Anej MARUŠIČ

Anej Marušič je študent magistrskega študijskega programa Računalništvo in informatika na UP FAMNIT in bo na seminarju predstavil svoje delo v okviru predmeta Raziskovalni seminar.

POVZETEK

Namen seminarja je podrobneje spoznati SCADA sistem. To smo naredili najprej z navedbo in kratko raziskavo, zakaj pride do potreb za uporabo SCADA sistema. V pregledu področja smo se nato posvetili nekaterim možnostim za implementacijo takega sistema ter ugotavljali njihove prednosti in slabosti. Naposled smo izbrali eno od možnosti, s katero smo SCADA sistem implementirali. Implementacija SCADA sistema s pomočjo programskega orodja Ignition nam omogoči globlje razumevanje SCADA sistemov in njihove izgradnje, prav tako pa tudi izgradnje sistema na splošno in integracije sistema v okolje v podjetju.

PREDAVATELJICA: Maheshya WEERASINGHE

Maheshya Weerasinghe, First-year Computer Science PhD student, FAMNIT, University of Primorska and University of St. Andrews, UK. Research interests: Human-Computer Interaction, Learning, and Knowledge Retention.

NASLOV: Immersive Virtual Reality Experiences

The first step in immersive VR research is creating a virtual world. VR environment design and functionality varies a lot depending on the project type and what we want to achieve. If we're planning a browsing study looking at visual strategies, it would be sufficient to create 360-degree content with the stimuli. If we want to learn how users interact with the stimuli and navigate within the scenario, then 3D environments are more suitable. They allow more flexibility and control over the environment, which enables to create any type of situation and alternatives. At the same time, novel technologies such as eye tracking can be incorporated with VR environments to achieve several additional goals. Eye tracking in VR reveals what is behind an individual's subconscious reactions and behaviors when interacting with objects and environments, all while leveraging the full control and flexibility of virtual worlds. When working with eye tracking in VR, we are able to leverage the benefits of both technologies. VR allows us to create any type of simulated environment, where visual stimuli and scenarios can be quickly switched or easily repeated, while eye tracking gives you insights into where the participant's visual attention is at each moment of the experience and what visual elements trigger certain responses and behaviors. Eye tracking can also enhance VR experiences. By enabling more natural interactions through gaze, eye tracking contributes to more immersive and user-friendly experiences in VR.
