Conference Keynote Speakers


Speaker: Prof. Matthew He


Abstract. In recent scientific and technological advances, physical and biological, ecological and environmental, social and behavioral, cognitive sciences, engineering, and other emerging sciences, engineering and information technologies share a common need for efficient algorithms, system software, information systems and architecture, and efficient computing solutions to address large computational and interdisciplinary problems. Many boundaries among science, engineering and social systems are cross-linked in the face of combinations of knowledge and tools as demonstrated in the areas of computational mathematics, scientific computing, network computing, cloud computing, bio-molecular computing, quantum computing, soft computing, most recently perceptual computing. It is the time when the physical, biological and social sciences are joining forces with information computing sciences. It is the time when we will make extraordinary advances in the history of mankind through the field of scientific computing between artificial and biological intelligences. This talk provides the overview from informatics to intelligence with the following three sections:

  • Bioinformatics and Informatics

Speaker: Prof. Yuri I. Manin


Abstract. This talk discusses some basic features of cognitive activity at several different space/time scales: from from Internet and neural networks in the brain to civilizations. One motivation for such comparative study is its heuristic value. Attempts to better understand the functioning of complexes involved in cognitive activities of central nervous system by comparing it with a computing device have a long tradition. We suggest that comparison with Internet might be more adequate. We briefly touch upon such subjects as encoding, compression, and Saussurian trichotomy langue/langage/parole in various environments.

Speaker: Prof. Sergey V. Petoukhov


Abstract. Scientists try to reproduce in devices of artificial intelligence intellectual properties of living organisms, which are connected with the genetic code system. This lecture is devoted to the study and modeling of the genetic system on the basis of mathematical formalisms, which are used in digital devices of artificial intelligence and technology of noise-immunity coding of information. The genetic code of amino acid sequences in proteins does not allow understanding and modeling of inherited processes such as inborn coordinated motions of living bodies, innate principles of sensory information processing, quasi-holographic properties, etc. To be able to model these phenomena, the concept of geno-logical coding, which is connected with logical functions and Boolean algebra, is put forward. Structured alphabets of DNA in their matrix form of representations are connected with dyadic groups of binary numbers and a new type of systems of multidimensional numbers. This type generalizes systems of complex numbers and hypercomplex numbers, which serve as the basis of mathematical natural sciences and many technologies. The new systems are called in a general case as “systems of united-hypercomplex numbers”. They can be widely used in models of multi-parametrical systems in the field of algebraic biology, artificial life, devices of biological inspired artificial intelligence, etc.
