AIWAC: Affective Interaction through Wide-Learning And Cognitive Computing

The lecture will be held on Thursday, 26. 7. 2018 at 10:00 in Multimedia hall at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Tržaška cesta 25, Ljubljana. The lecture will be held in English.


With the development of the 5th generation wireless systems (5G), the wireless world is to be interconnected without barriers. The new technology is giving rise to more challenging applications, and people expect more personalized and interactive services with resource-limited mobile terminals. Fortunately, Mobile edge computing (MEC) implemented in the context of 5G can overcome this bottleneck, which makes it possible to enable many resource-intensive services for mobile users with the support of mobile big data delivery and cloud-assisted computing. In this talk, a novel Emotion-aware Mobile Cloud Computing framework in 5G will be given, which provides personalized emotion-aware services by MEC and affective computing. Meanwhile, artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive computing are significant for emotion-aware computing and emotion detection to meet various technical challenges. Especially, the role of wide learning is emphasized, which integrates multiple deep nets models and multidimensional data collections through IoT and 5G technologies. The practical testbed named Affective Interaction through Wide-Learning And Cognitive Computing (AIWAC) will be introduced.
