SYMPOSIUM KEYNOTE TALK On the Intersection of Big Data and Privacy by Prof. Houssain Kettani

Dakota State University, Madison, South Dakota, USA

Room: Main-Virtual Hall: 3SCS-2020

A struggle has emerged in relation to the sacredness of one's private information and the importance of moving forward in a digital world of social media, smart devices, and Big Data - an era known as the Age of Context. A real cause for concern has emerged regarding the seriousness of keeping data private while facilitating efforts to encourage and support emerging technologies. This includes data collection methods, a discovery of Big Data processes and purposes, and the identification of risks pertaining to the individual, the military, and the country. It was determined that significant concerns do exist pertaining to data collection, Big Data, and privacy. These concerns not only pertain to the individual, but with military effectiveness and national security. It is important to keep private information private and it is equally important, if done in an ethical manner, to allow certain entities access to this data for the benefit of the user of whom the data belongs, the benefit of the organization, and the benefit of the nation. Big Data is the key to housing this information and as such is growing at a phenomenal rate. The basis as to what data an organization can collect, store, have access to, and share is continuing to be litigated in the courts and legislated by state and national law makers. The use of data collection processes and devices and other technologies, and the storage of the information that they capture is being contested in a wide range of course setting, which makes the future use of these technologies likely to be as much a legal issue as it is a technology issue. As we move forward in this exciting Age of Context, social media, and Big Data, let us pursue an ever-greater means of integrating our environment without compromising or sacrificing one of our most precious assets, our personal and private information.

Prof. Houssain Kettani: Prof. Houssain Kettani received the Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Eastern Mediterranean University, Cyprus in 1998, and Master's and Doctorate degrees both in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 2000 and 2002, respectively. Dr. Kettani served as faculty member at the University of South Alabama (2002-2003), Jackson State University (2003-2007), Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico (2007-2012), Fort Hays State University (2012-2016), Florida Polytechnic University (2016-2018) and Dakota State University since 2018. Dr. Kettani has served as Staff Research Assistant at Los Alamos National Laboratory in summer of 2000, Visiting Research Professor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in summers of 2005 to 2011, Visiting Research Professor at the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center at the University of Alaska in summer of 2008 and Visiting Professor at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in summer of 2010. Dr. Kettani's research interests include algorithms, cybersecurity, machine learning and population studies. He presented his research in over one hundred refereed conference and journal publications and his work received over six hundred citations by researchers all over the world. He chaired over hundred international conferences throughout the world and successfully secured external funding in millions of dollars for research and education from US federal agencies such as NSF, DOE, DOD, and NRC.

Bahrain Smart City Society by Dr. Bijan Pio Majidi, CEO Dinamica International Ventures Development W.L.L., Bahrain

Mobility is just one of the smart cities domains, but nonetheless, a vitally important one, influencing our personal life in many ways. Personal mobility is evolving quickly and the paradigm is shifting from ICE vehicle mobility centric solutions to personal centric ,micro and multimodal, mobility, with impactful consequence on urban planning, infrastructures retrofitting and development, innovative technology deployment and bespoke regulations, policies and legislation. The automotive revolution creating the emergence and increasing deployment of E-CASE: E-business models, Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric vehicles, opens a new chapter in the role of regulators, infrastructure developers, urban planners, municipalities, utility electricity providers, telecommunication companies, IT, big data and analytics authorities and EV charging network developers and operators. Multiple nations have set ambitious policy goals for E-CASE adoption and are setting essential steps, as an example, to prioritize transportation electrification as a key strategy to reduce fossil fuel dependence, reduce energy costs, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. EV adoption is projected to grow in the next 5 years across the world, in a heterogeneous way; there will be countries that will go all-court, obtaining real benefits for all its stakeholders and citizens, and those who will only go with declarations of intent and PR stunts. To succeed, there must be economical convenience for the vehicle end-user/owner and fleet owners (public and private), and viable business models for those who invest, develop and manage the required EV charging infrastructure. The E-CASE adaptation, penetration speed and benefits (environmental, economical, safety, privacy and quality of life), will depend significantly on the regulators' vision, policies, budget, legislation, time-to-market planning and implementation capabilities. Bahrain, due to its intrinsic characteristics, dimensions and geographical location, its government vision, openness to innovation and its commitment to citizens' well-being, has the opportunity to become a real best-practice nation with significant benefits for all its stake-holders. This presentation aims to outline a feasible, scalable and sustainable planning and implementation roadmap based on the principle: Think big (long term vision), start small (selected significant pilots), produce quick wins (that are scalable) and scale-up in PPP fashion (with best fit partners).

Dr. Bijan Pio Majidi, born in Livorno, Italy, an Italian citizen, multilingual and multicultural, is the founder and CEO of Dinamica International, Board Member and Programs Director BSCS (Bahrain Smart City Society), and Strategic Advisor to Cities Forum (Sustainable Urban Development ) UK.

SYMPOSIUM KEYNOTE TALK: Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Models in Cybersecurity:Potentials, Tools, and Risks

by: Prof. El-Sayed El-Alfy is Professor at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, KFUPM, KSA

TALK ABSTRACT: With the increasing reliance on smart devices and computing-enabled infrastructure for automated systems, cybersecurity has become a growing field of interest and investment. Artificial intelligence (AI) is developing rapidly and its recent technological advances have gained global importance in many domains including the digital world of cybersecurity. AI-driven systems can be a blessing or curse for cybersecurity experts and criminals alike. For instance, while cybersecurity experts are harnessing the potential of AI to develop countering solutions for hacking activities, cybercriminals can employ it to build more smart malware agents to adapt and launch illusive attacks that are hard to fight. Governments, organizations, businesses and individuals need to be aware of the game and the potentials and limitations of AI techniques to be prepared to combat cybercrimes by investing in the research and development of innovative solutions in order to protect our vital information and critical systems from adversaries and potential catastrophic cyber threats. In this talk, we provide an overview of artificial intelligence techniques from machine learning to deep learning models and how they have been applied in cybersecurity.

TALK ABSTRACT: 5G communication Standard is the future of wireless mobile services. It will help in the realization of the data hungry technologies and will be the enabling technology for IoT, autonomous cars, smart cities etc. The 5G technology will rely on several frequency bands including the millimeter-wave bands to achieve extremely high data rates. The performance of a 5G system greatly rely on the design of its wireless transceiver. Among this, antenna design is of paramount importance. In a limited space, multiple antennas covering widely spaced bands with stringent radiation characteristics are required. This talk will focus on the design of antennas for 5G. It will cover both the designs and antenna requirements in the sub-6 GHz bands and in the millimeter-wave bands. Different scenarios will be presented to explain how the antenna design can affect the performance of a MIMO system and based on which, antenna designs for 5G will be presented.

Presentation by Eng. Nihat Aslandogdu, Head of Interra Academy, Export Technical Manager Occupation.

ABSTRACT: Let's compare smart cities to a community of people, the smallest unit in a community is the individual and the family. If it is not a smart city, we can call it an individual or family. When we consider buildings here, smart systems have been implemented in our buildings for a long time. It treats me as a common system under the automation of many structures and systems that are now required in the networks. Illuminations, elevators, sensors and pumps are the nerve endings of the building and there is a constant flow of information. This information is sent to a common point inside or outside the building. It ensures that the management of this building is energy-efficient and that they are kept under control. It also offers much more comfort, health and safety for people living in it. Other topics in the keynote; Digital Twin, How smart offices, rooms change the future of work and living places.

Kai Miethig (Wastrepreneur & Founder of W-AI-STE)

Chair: Bader Almannai (University of Bahrain, Bahrain)

Room: Main-Virtual Hall: 3SCS-2020

ABSTRACT: Anything worldwide, in general, is designed, planned and made suitable for human usage. May it be a car, a bottle, a tool, a bag or a house. A neighborhood, a park, a computer, mobile or TV. All these items and structures have a limited life duration. From a few seconds like a bag up to a few hundred years maybe, so everything has to come to an end, but what after usage/life ends? Throwing away is not a solution, actually, it is never a solution. All that products humans create has an end and these products will not vanish like whatever comes from animals will disappear. So we need o start considering in any design the waste management and recycling possibilities to achieve sustainable design, fitting to human behavior.

Kai Miethig: Kai Miethig is an Architect and Project Manager with over 15 years of experience in the fields of design, project management and coordination, construction, site supervision, and team leadership. His has professional expertise and social competence in leading teams towards achieving project goals on high efficiency and quality He is also since many years engaged and experienced in waste management and technology solutions for the ever-increasing worldwide problem of waste and recycling along with humans habits to preserve the environment and nature. He developed recently a special training program suitable for all humans in order to have a better understanding of what waste is exactly, how behavior can be changed as well as how others can be influenced to switch habits for a better world. Environmental awareness along with handy solutions and the respective technologies is his passion.
