    You are cordially invited to join a visiting seminar organized by AVITECH.


    Some Aspects of Computer-Aided Diagnosis Applied on Medical Images


    Prof. Dusit Niyato, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

    Time: 14:00, Friday, December 14, 2018
    Venue: E3-212, 144 Xuan Thuy, Cau Giay, Hanoi


    Public blockchain networks using proof of work-based consensus protocols are considered to be a promising platform for decentralized database management. In order to maintain a secured, universal state of the blockchain, proof of work-based consensus protocols financially incentivizes the nodes in the network to compete for the privilege of block generation through cryptographic puzzle solving. For rational consensus nodes, i.e., miners with limited local computational resources such as mobile devices, offloading the computation load for proof of work to the cloud/fog providers becomes a viable option. In this talk, we first introduce a general concept of blockchain and mining/consensus management. We then present incentive mechanisms based on game-theoretic models to optimize the mining strategies of the miners. Some future research directions are then discussed.


    Dusit Niyato is currently a professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering and, by courtesy, School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences, at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He received B.E. from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Thailand in 1999 and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Manitoba, Canada in 2008. He has published more than 380 technical papers in the area of wireless and mobile networking and is an inventor of four US and German patents. He has authored four books including “Game Theory in Wireless and Communication Networks: Theory, Models, and Applications” with Cambridge University Press. He won the Best Young Researcher Award of IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) Asia Pacific (AP) and The 2011 IEEE Communications Society Fred W. Ellersick Prize Paper Award. Currently, he is serving as a senior editor of IEEE Wireless Communications Letter, an area editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications (Radio Management and Multiple Access), an area editor of IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials (Network and Service Management and Green Communication), an editor of IEEE Transactions on Communications, an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, and IEEE Transactions on Cognitive Communications and Networking. He was a guest editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas on Communications. He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society for 2016-2017. He was named the 2017 and 2018 highly cited researcher in computer science. He is a Fellow of IEEE.

    January 10, 2023: Dr. Luu Phuc Loi (Pacific Informatics, Vietnam), Epigenomics in clinical applications

    More and more genetic and genomic testing are developed and approved to be used in clinic after human genome project finished in 2001. With the emerging of NGS in 2005, the genetic and genomic testing is further advanced and plays an important role in clinical diagnosis and prognosis. Were born later, epigenetic and epigenomic testing […]
