Title: Based on IoTs Parking Navigation with Continuous Information Potential Field research
Abstract: As Internet of Things(Iots) are increasingly being deployed in some important applications, it becomes imperative that we consider application requirements in in-network processes. We intend to use a WSN to aid information querying and navigation within a dynamic and real-time environment. We propose a novel method that relies on the heat diffusion equation to finish the navigation process conveniently and easily. From the perspective of theoretical analysis, our proposed work holds the lower constraint condition. We use multiple scales to reach the goal of accurate navigation. We present a multi-scale gradient descent method to satisfy users’requirements in WSNs. Formula derivations and simulations show that the method is accurately and efficiently able to solve typical sensor network configuration information navigation problems. Simultaneously, the structure of heat diffusion equation allows more flexibility and adaptability in searching algorithm designs.

Title: Artificial Intelligence in Medical Domain: Boon or Bane
Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) rapidly dominates the health service framework. It eliminates the manual health system into programmed, in which people lead the normal works/assignments in clinical practice to the administration of patients and clinical assets. The technical challenges of digitizing health services present new issues when developers make AI systems to complete assignments. AI offers the potential for an enormous improvement in understanding consideration and a decrease in medical services costs. The rising population is supposed to have the option to support the interest in health services. The health services area needs creative answers for figure out how to be more viable and productive without over-the-top consumption. This is where innovation comes in for the arrangements. Fast improvements in innovation, particularly in the fields of AI and mechanical technology, can help the supplement of the medical services industry.
This session aimed to find out the opportunity of artificial intelligence (AI) and the risk in health service. The application of AI will improve diagnostics, prevention, and treatment of patients, increasing cost efficiency and equality and equality in health services. For the challenge, there is no AI adoption in public sector, patients’ privacy, patient autonomy rights become problems in AI applications. Implementation of AI is needed in the efficiency of health service management as well as making medical decisions. The challenge is facilitating early adoption and ongoing implementation in the health care system, and we consider some of the ethical problem lists faced by AI clinical application.

Title: Internet of Underwater Things Challenges and Future Research Directions
Abstract: The Internet of Underwater Things technology can be established using various underwater wireless communications technologies, including acoustic, radio frequency (RF), magnetic induction, and optical. Each of these technologies has its pros and cons; for example, acoustic technology reaches longer distances but is bandwidth limited, while underwater optical wireless communications(UOWCs) can support higher data rates at the cost of short ranges. This talk will highlight opportunities and challenges faced by Internet of Underwater Things Technology and present future research directions.
