    June 01, 2021: Dr. Ta Van Duong (Le Quy Don Tech. Univ.), Advances in Soft-matter-based Microlasers

    Microlasers are important components for integrated photonic circuits and ultra-sensitive miniature sensors. In the early state, most microlasers were based on semiconductor materials because of their high efficiency, compactness, and emission stability. However, the fabrication of semiconductor microlasers is challenging that requires costly apparatus and many complex processes. To overcome this issue, recently soft-matter-based microlasers have been investigated intensively as they offer simple fabrication, mechanical flexibility, and the ability to incorporate with different gain materials for tunable wavelength. In this presentation, I will share our work on soft-matter microlasers including polymer lasers and recently developed lasers as well as their application in bioimaging and sensing.

    February 2, 2024: Dr. Khoa D. Doan (Vin Univeristy) Toward Reliable and Practical Machine Learning Applications

    While Machine Learning (ML) has rapidly transformed several domains and applications with incredible successes, there are also important areas where the progress is significantly slower. Specifically, there exists a widened complexity gap between the methods currently investigated in research and those used in practice in these areas. One reason is that many algorithms, despite achieving […]

    February 2, 2024: Prof. Heng Ji (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Combating with Misinformation and Cancer: A Unified Multimodal AI Approach to Healthy and Happy Life

    A research overview of ongoing research projects, especially focusing on two that are most related to the VinUni-UIUC Smart Health Center: (1) Misinformation Detection and Trustworthy Large Language Models; (2) Joint Natural Language and Molecule Learning for Drug Discovery. Unsurprisingly these two seemingly different research problems can be tackled with a unified approach based on […]

    January 11, 2024: Dr. Le Duc Trong (FIT-UET) Resilient Multimodal Learning for Multimodal Emotion Recognition in the Presence of Incomplete Modalities

    Multimodal Emotion Recognition in Conversation (Multimodal ERC) is a critical area of research for interpreting human communication in diverse applications. Nevertheless, the persistent issue of uncertain missing modalities poses a major hurdle, hampering the development of robust Multimodal ERC models. Existing approaches face limitations in effectively leveraging a fusion of diverse data modalities encompassing audio, […]
