Two our papers accepted at IEEE BIBE 2013

We just got notified of the acceptance of two our scientific papers for presentation and publication at the influential IEEE BIBE 2013, the 13rd IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Bioengineering

One is the article entitled “A Discrete Optimization Approach for SVD Best Truncation Choice based on ROC Curves”, written mainly by me and co-authored by Marco Masseroli, and the other one is entitled “Enhanced Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis with Weighting Schemes to Predict Genomic Annotations”, written mainly by Pietro Pinoli and co-authored by me and Marco Masseroli.

The conference will be held in Chania (Crete, Greece, EU) next November.

IEEE Computational Intelligence Society – Jun Wang distinguished lecture at Politecnico di Milano, on May 14th 2012

On May 14th 2012, at Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione of Politecnico di Milano, professor Jun Wang from Chinese University of Hong Kong will give a distinguished lecture entitled “The State of the Art of Multiple-winners-take-all Networks: Neurodynamics formulation, Models, and Applications”.

This event is organized by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Italian Chapter. Here’s the complete announcement:

The State of the Art of Multiple-winners-take-all Networks:
Neurodynamics formulation, Models, and Applications

Jun Wang

Department of Mechanical & Automation Engineering
Chinese University of Hong Kong

Winner-take-all is a general rule commonly used in many applications such as machine learning and data mining. K-winners-
take-all is a generalization of winner-take-all with multiple winners. Over the last twenty years, many K-winners-take-all neural networks and circuits have been developed with varied complexity and performance. In this talk, I will start with several mathematical problem formulations of the K-winners-take-all solutions via neurodynamic optimization, then present several K winners-take-all networks with reducing model complexity based on our neurodynamic optimization models. Finally, we will
introduce the best one with the simplest model complexity and maximum computational efficiency. Analytical and Monte Carlo simulation results will be shown to demonstrate the computing characteristics and performance. The applications to parallel sorting, rank-order filtering, and information retrieval will be also discussed.
