    June 08, 2021: Dr. Nguyen Vu Linh (Eindhoven Univ. Tech., Netherlands), Examples of Classification Tasks

    Classification is a machine learning approach in which the computer learns a map from objects (and their features) to classes. Numerous studies have focused on the setting of multi-class classification with a single class variable. More general classification tasks are to predict multiple class variables simultaneously, i.e. multi-dimensional classification (MDC). When the class variables are binary, the MDC task is reduced to a multi- labelclassification(MLC) task. In this talk, we shall quickly illustrate those classification tasks (using examples). The talk also mentions ensemble learning and active learning which are respectively used to seek better predictive performance on a predictive modeling task than a single predictive model and to exploit labeled data in the most effective way. Making set-valued predictions in classification tasks will be discussed. Incases of uncertainty, a predictive model preferably returns a set of candidate classes instead of predicting a single class label with little guarantee. When making set-valued predictions, the classifier should strive for an optimal balance between the correctness (the true class is among the candidates) and the precision(the candidates are not too many) of its prediction.

    Vu-Linh Nguyen received his Bachelor degree in Mathematics from the Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU), Vietnam (2013) and Master degree in Knowledge Science from the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST), Japan (2015). From 2015-2018, he pursued his Ph.D. studies at the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC), France, working on classification and active learning. From 2018-2020, he was a postdoc at the Paderborn University (UPB), Germany, working on multi-label classification and ensemble learning. Vu-Linh Nguyen joined the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in February 2021 as a Postdoc in the Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence group, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. His research interests include uncertainty quantification, classification, active learning, ensemble learning, and causal representation learning.


    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, […]
