    Aug 05, 2022: Prof. Dao Viet Hang (Hanoi Medical University), Updated Hepatocellular Carcinoma Managementand Potential Research Directions onHepatocellular Carcinoma Prevention

    HCC is a major burden disease in Vietnam, ranking the first in prevalence and mortality of malignancies. Using ultrasound plus biomarker Alpha- fetoprotein (AFP) plays an important role in HCC screening for high-risk populations such as cirrhosis, viral hepatitis,… HCC diagnosis still faces many difficulties due to the heterogeneous quality of diagnostic imaging facilities and many new but difficult-to-access biomarkers. The combination of triple biomarkers AFP, AFP-L3, and PIVAKII is expected to improve the early diagnosis of HCC. Different imaging classifications such as mRECIST, LIRAD, and RECIL are recommended to achieve a standardized and homogenous evaluation of liver tumors. The Barcelona staging helps to select the optimal treatment approach and predict survival time for the patient. HCC prevention strategy requires a multimodal approach: prevention of risk factors, especially hepatitis virus, screening in high-risk populations, and development of techniques for early diagnosis of both new and recurrent cases combining both biomarkers and new technologies in diagnostic imaging.

    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, […]
