Call for Paper

The recent development in artificial intelligence and embedded systems has increased the potential of receiving and processing huge amounts of real-time data in Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). CPS is the engineered physical systems able to perceive and process the information and act accordingly. These physical systems are well inter-connected, coordinated and integrated by computing and communication. As computing and communication devices have become much faster, cheap and consume less power. It has become significant to understand, analyse and apply the knowledge of artificial intelligence in CPS to provide more intelligent physical systems and involve more and more end users who are still isolated. Artificial intelligence (AI) can provide capability to any physical system to apply human-like intelligence on the perceived information in order to achieve its goal. The growing area of CPS with AI can provide the smart machines and networked physical systems to perform tasks in remote and dangerous areas. Currently the intelligent cyber physical systems is gaining momentum at an unprecedented pace to combine AI and CPS for many real-time applications. Still this domain is facing many challenges and gaps and lagging behind in implementation in the real world which needs improvements and more attention. This conference aims to collect the latest development and original contribution in all related technologies of AI and CPS and their applications. This conference is an effort to bring together the leading researchers, academicians and industry experts to share their ideas, recent development, upcoming challenges and directions in the area of intelligent CPS. We encourage the experienced and young researchers worldwide to submit the papers with new ideas, theory, analytical study, methods and applications of AI and CPS.

Data Science and Cyber Security Systems: A Statistical Perspective


Abstract:
Data science is empowering many contemporary innovations, including the development of robust cybersecurity systems. It is becoming a significant research area that embedded the combination of modern computing tools and statistical inferences, with the demand of adequately maintaining data privacy within the systems. For example, in e-healthcare systems, IoT devices monitor the patient’s health and upload classified data as Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) to the cloud. Sharing EMRs data in hyper-connected systems with a limited storage capacity of IoT devices in a third party based service provider is more vulnerable to attack by sophisticated cybercriminals. Existing privacy protection schemes, including cryptography, cannot ensure the privacy demands in a cloud environment. Medical data sharing need multiple data accessing paradigms with different levels of privacy according to the need for consultation by a specialist, e.g., surgeons, general practitioners, allied health staff. Besides, none of these techniques is robust in privacy preservation because of not determining privacy weight (i.e. an orthogonal design matrix-based weight generation strategy for determining data privacy) for the e-Health industry using a cloud environment or automated by adaptation of AI. These effectively limit the full potential of the dynamic cloud-based e-healthcare systems and business environment and the wider uptake and comprehensive benefits of data science more generally.

In this inaugural talk, I will address some significant computing and inferential challenges in data science with a particular focus on cyber design space, security of data, computation, and inferences. It will not only highlight computing statistics for the decision-making process or running intelligent algorithms, but also there must be a focus on reliability measures on any applied outputs. This keynote presentation will also illustrate some real-world case studies from data science, including a quick overview of one of our project aims to develop a robust solution for privacy-preserving ehealth data sharing in a cloud environment with an AI-based automated technique to ensure data privacy and measuring reliability.

Keywords: Bayesian thinking, Big data, Business industry applications, Cloud-based systems, Features attribute data, Predicting powe
