    March 30, 2021: Ph.D. Hoang Gia Hung (VNU Univ. Eng. Tech.), Random finite set theory and its application in signal processing

    Random finite sets (RFS) or simple finite point processes are stochastic geometric models in stochastic geometry – a branch of mathematics that studies connections between geometry and probability. Stemming from the famous Buffon’s needle problem, stochastic geometry has since found applications in many diverse areas including astronomy, agriculture/forestry, epidemiology, image analysis, and telecommunications. In this talk, we will give a very brief introduction to random finite set theory and its application in signal processing, with emphasis on the development of novel filters such as the Probability Hypothesis Density (Ph.D.) filter and the Cardinalised Ph.D. (CPHD) filter.

    Speaker: Ph.D. Hoang Gia Hung, VNU Univ. Eng. Tech.

    Time: 15:30, Tuesday, March 30, 2021

    Venue: G2-315, 144 Xuan Thuy, Cau Giay, Hanoi


    Hoang Gia Hung was born in Ha Noi, Viet Nam, in 1978. He received the B.Tech. degree in Electronic Engineering and Telecommunications in 2000 from Vietnam National University (VNU Hanoi) and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2009 from the University of New South Wales, Australia. He was the recipient of the Endeavour Research Award and was appointed as a research fellow with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Western Australia in 2012. Afterward, he held several positions in world-leading academic and industrial organizations. He is currently a Lecturer at the University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University. His main research interests are signal processing and systems theory with an emphasis on applications of random sets to sensor management, multi-target tracking, and robotics.


    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, […]
