November 14, 2023. Tuesday, 3PM. TG23 (Town Hall). Speaker: Ali Khoshkholghi (Middlesex University, London) Title: xURLLC in 6G with Medshed RAN Abstract: 5G Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications Technology (URLLC) will not be able to provide extremely reliable low latency services to the complex networks in 6G. Moreover, URLLC that began with 5G has to be […]
October 12, 2023. Thursday. 3PM. TG23 (Town Hall). Speaker: Roman Belavkin (Middlesex University, London) Title: Information Processing in the Human Brain: What are Our Models Missing? Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been evolving using two approaches: Symbolic and Sub-symbolic (connectionist). Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are examples of the latter, and recent successes of Deep Learning […]
September 15, 2023. Friday. 3PM. Room: TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Takashi Matsuoka (Suwa University of Science, Japan) Title: Compound States via Quantum Conditionality and Quantum Mutual Entropy Abstract: It will be shown that quantum state on composite system may be represented by a composition of two types of complete positive maps, one is called […]
Staff members Giacomo Nalli, Mahdi Aiash and Sukhvinder Hara have recently been successful with two separate projects (AI-Bility 4D and Capable) in bidding for the 2023/24 cohort of CyberASAP, a government-funded cyber security academic startup accellerator programme in two phases (value proposition and market validation). This funded 27 academic projects for up to one year.
Professor Juan Augusto recently chaired the 19th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’23), hosted this year on Middlesex University’s sister campus in Flic en Flac, a beautiful location on the western shore of the island of Mauritius.
May 9, 2o23. 3PM (Rescheduled from November 2022) Room: TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Gunel Jahangirova Title: Mutation Testing of Deep Learning Systems Abstract: Deep Learning (DL) is increasingly adopted to solve complex tasks such as image recognition or autonomous driving. Companies are considering the inclusion of DL components in production systems, but one of […]
March 9th, 2023. Thursday. 3PM. Room: TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Murdoch J. Gabbay (Heriot-Watt University) Title: A broadly Marxian analysis of blockchain and cryptocurrencies Abstract: Bitcoin sought to transfer the means of production of money from the state to individuals; Karl Marx would probably have been delighted. It hasn’t worked out quite how the […]
February 8th, 2023. Wednesday. 3PM. Postponed due to illness. New date to be announced. TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Samson Abramsky (University College, London) Title: Contextuality: from quantum mechanics to logic, language and information Abstract: Contextuality is the key non-classical feature of quantum mechanics, which has been used to show various forms of quantum advantage […]
January 11, 2023. Wednesday. 3.30PM. TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Edith Elkind Title: Learning axes from samples: single-peaked preferences and beyond Abstract: We consider a society where voters, who participate in an election, report their preferences over candidates, and these preferences are one-dimensional, i.e., consistent with the candidates being ordered on a left-to-right axis. We […]
November 16, 2022. Wednesday. 3PM Room: TG23 (Town Hall Building) Speaker: Ranko Lazic Title: Adversarial Reprogramming Revisited Abstract: TL;DR: We show that neural networks with random weights are susceptible to adversarial reprogramming, and that in some settings training the network can cause its adversarial reprogramming to fail. Adversarial reprogramming, introduced by Elsayed, Goodfellow, and Sohl-Dickstein, […]
