    March 01, 2022: Dr. Vo Nguyen Son (Duy Tan University), A Sustainable Multi-tier Multi-hop Emergency Communication System

    In emergency scenarios, e.g., during a disaster, communication systems are partially (or completely) interrupted with very limited resources due to infrastructures destruction and hence the lack of essential services. Meanwhile, the demand for communication reaches its highest peak ever since users need to contact loved ones and make sure they are safe, inform first responders and local governments about surrounding conditions, and receive urgent instructions for safety and resilience. Rather than only high quality of service (QoS), the affected users now require high quality of sustainability (QoSus) of communications that are characterized by high response, interoperable and robust connections, high hit rate and delivery capacity of contents, and resource savings. In this talk, I’ll present our work on designing a sustainable multi-tier multi-hop emergency communication system (SMM-ECS) for high QoSuS to reduce as much harm as possible in emergency scenarios. Finally, we discuss the results to demonstrate the benefits of our proposed SMM-ECS.

    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, […]
