International Conference on
Modern Intelligent Systems Concepts

December 12 - 13, 2018

Mohammed V University in Rabat, Faculty of Science, 4 Avenue Ibn Battouta, Rabat, Morocco

Call for papers

In recent years, everyone is talking about Artificial Intelligence and its obvious involvement in almost every field. We think it is the right time to approach this discipline to better contribute to its orientation in the service of humanity. Our goal is to lead Artificial Intelligence to excellence, especially in the MENA region as well as in Africa where, to our knowledge, there is no specialized conference dealing with such topics. The International Conference on Modern Intelligent Systems Concepts (MISC) focuses on Artificial Intelligence (AI), its applications and how AI fields can support societal challenges such as health and well-being, food and nutrition, agriculture, clean energy, transportation and risk management, for critical issues such as climate change, environmental and ecological protection, societal safety, etc. At the same time, the socio-economic context has also favoured the emergence of scams and other cyber-criminal activities. AI can be used to safeguard and protect users from these kinds of threats. AI is potentially offering solutions to many practical issues of everyday life and if well exploited can positively revolutionize the life of the people. MISC aims to put in place sustainable mechanisms to strengthen and promote the cooperation between academics and professionals. It is also a key tool for strengthening industrial cooperation in AI R&D and bridging the gap between research and the market. This Conference is a privileged place for the exchange of ideas, debates and networking between academics and entrepreneurs around the key issues of research, development and innovation in the various fields of Artificial Intelligence and its Applications. This session is therefore intended for start-ups, Designers, Developers, Decision-Makers, Consultants, and of course Master / PhD Students, Researchers and Academics.

Talk 1: Artificial Intelligence for Industry, Environment, and Ambient Intelligence
Prof. Vincenzo Piuri, FIEEE, Department of computer Science, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy,

Adaptability and advanced services for industrial manufacturing require an intelligent technological support for understanding the production process characteristics also in complex situations. Quality control is specifically one of the activities in manufacturing which is very critical for ensuring high-quality products and competitiveness on the market. Similarly, protection of the environment requires ability to adjust the understanding of the current status by considering the natural dynamics of the environment itself and the natural phenomena. Finally, creating adaptive environments for the better life of people requires an appropriate support for understanding the current needs and the desires of users in the interactions with the environment for their daily use, as well as for understanding the current status of the environment also in complex situations. This infrastructure constitutes an essential base for smart living. Artificial intelligence can provide additional flexible techniques for designing and implementing monitoring and control systems both for industrial and environmental applications as well as for ambient intelligence, which can be configured from behavioral examples or by mimicking approximate reasoning processes to achieve adaptable systems. This talk will analyze the opportunities offered by artificial intelligence technologies to support the realization of adaptable operations and intelligent services in industrial applications, specifically focusing on manufacturing processes and quality control, in environmental monitoring, especially for land management and agriculture, and in ambient intelligence, in particular for smart environments.

Talk 2: Agent based approach: Distributed problem solving and complex system modeling
Prof. A. Koukam
Université de Technologie de Belfort Montbéliard
90010 Belfort Cedex France


Multi-agent approach proposes a new vision of problem analysis and system modeling, based on a radical critique of centralized methods. It considers systems as societies of autonomous and independent entities, called agents, which interact to solve a problem or collectively perform a task.
Multi-agent systems are used in several application domains, in particular, robotics, distributed problem solving, modeling and simulation of complex systems.
The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the foundation of this approach by considering the two perspectives: distributed problem solving and simulation of complex systems.

Talk 3: Take the Best of Big Data: Focus on Value & Variety
Pr Ladjel Bellatreche, ISAE-ENSMA, Poitiers University, Futuroscope, Poitiers, France
Big data represents a new technology for managing data with high velocity, volume, variety and contributes to creating value for companies. Capturing all queries made on the company website or from customer support calls, emails or chat lines, regardless of their outcome, may have significant value in identifying emerging trends. The Big Data Era has largely contributed in accelerating the development strategic plans issued from governments and research organisms, coving the management, exploitation and analysis of these data by taking into account the different V's of Big Data. Among these plans, we can cite for instance the development of: (a) large-scale platforms (ex. data-clusters, distributed data clusters), (b) Software Defined Environments (SDE) (ex. IBM SDE), (c) advanced programming paradigms (ex. map-reduce, Spark, etc.), Data Analytics Tools (Rapid Miner, Google Fusion Tables, Solver), (d) Visualization tools (Google Chart, Tableau, Oracle Visual Analyzer), and (h) high quality and valuable Knowledge Bases (KB),  constructed either by academicians (e.g., Cyc, DBpedia, Freebase, and YAGO) and industrials (e.g., Google Knowledge Graph, Facebook Knowledge Graph, Amazon Knowledge Graph, Credit Rating Agencies, Enterprise Knowledge Base, etc.). In this talk, we would like to foster the creation of a think tank dedicated to getting the best from Big Data V’s and the efforts related to it to revisit our research activities without compromising them. In this talk, we would like to share the experience conducted with our Model and Data Engineering Team of the LIAS Laboratory at ISAE-ENSMA, which aims at the design of data warehousing applications. Based on the literature, this design is based on two main approaches: (i) a supply-driven approach (also called data-driven) that starts with an analysis of operational data sources in order to identify all the available data and (ii) a user-driven approach (also known as requirement-driven or goal-orientated) which stems from the determination of the information requirements of different business users. Several studies and experiments show that resorting to these two approaches entails a high risk for companies, since some functional requirements cannot be satisfied. This is due to the lack of relevant data in sources. In parallel, reference studies have identified the crucial role of knowledge bases (KB) for analytical tasks, by offering analysts more entities (people, places, products, etc.). The availability of a huge, high quality valuable KB is an asset for data warehousing designers and decision-makers to construct/exploit a valuable data warehouse. So, faced with this situation, we here present a value-driven approach that revisits the traditional life cycle of the design of data warehouses, by considering KB as an external resource. These different phases are illustrated via the YAGO KB.


Keynote 4. Pr. Denis ROTHMAN

Denis Rothman

Denis ROTHMAN is the author cutting-edge artificial intelligence solutions that he is presently innovating using Python, Tensorflow, IBMWatson, Google’s Machine Learning platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS) along with other machine learning and deep learning tools.
Denis Rothman graduated from l'Université Paris-Sorbonne and l'Université Paris-Diderot, writing one of the very first word2matrix embedding solutions. He began his career authoring one of the first AI cognitive NLP chatbots applied as a language teacher for Moët et Chandon and other companies 30+ years ago. In recent research, Denis authored an IBM Watson – Deep Learning cognitive NPL Chatbot. 
Through domain learning, Denis authored a profit orientated AI resource optimizing system written in Horn Clauses in Prolog for IBM and delivered to Agfa. The system was transposed into C++ for fabric optimization. It was first developed on one of Levi's production sites and then used by scores of major apparel brands.
Using a Conceptual Representation Learning approach he invented, Denis wrote and AI APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) solution based on cognitive patterns. 
This AI software is used worldwide in the aerospace, train, energy, apparel and many other corporate fields. Designed initially as a cognitive AI program for IBM, it then went on to become a robust C++ Advanced Planning and Scheduling solution used to this day. He developed (Python) an experimental Automated Planning and Scheduling solution for unmanned vehicles, robots, bots, intelligent agents and more.
Artificial Intelligence by Example by Denis was published describing real-life case studies through cutting-edge machine learning and in-depth learning programs.

Talk 4: Artificial Intelligence as the Art of Increasing Productivity in Industries with Deep Learning

Denis ROTHMAN, Artificial Intelligence | Machine Learning | Deep Learning | Author & Speaker
Paris, France   

Reinforcement Learning and Deep Learning have now entered their production phase of real-life applications. One of the consequences is the conjunction of two disruptive events that have begun to change the manufacturing world as we know it. First, in 2015 Google Deep Mind’s team produced a DeepRL system that assembled Deep Neural networks with Reinforcement Learning. This deep Q-network(DQN) performed better than professional game players adding its power to the existing chess engines no chess professional can beat anymore. The second event occurred when Amazon recently registered a patent for manufacturing on demand warehouses to produce its clothing in real-time. The combination of these two events has lead to numerous artificial innovations. This talk focuses on a research DQN that optimizes production flows in real-time. The system starts with a Convolution Neural Network(CNN) that classifies video frames of a manufacturing conveyor line. A Conceptual Representation Learning Meta-Model (CRLMM) designed by Denis Rothman embeds manufacturing concepts to interpret the output of the CNN. An optimizer decides how to re-plan production in real-time taking the CNN and CRLMM into account. The output of the optimizer is the reward matrix of Markov Decision Process(MDP) in the Bellman Equation version. This enhanced DQN system finally produces automatic decisions that optimize the production stations. Such systems show that artificial intelligence is moving from media hype to real-life production.

Talk 5: Artificial Intelligence & IoT: An Intelligent Connected World

Pr Khalid MACHCHATE, Digital Transformation & Disruptive Technologies International Expert | TED Speaker | K&W Tech CEO | DEMO Africa Lion 2017
Rabat, Morocco

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) are two extremely connected technology stacks. This keynote is to develop and answer the questions around How are they connected, Why, and What’s next for humanity through the coupled use of AI and IoT.

According to a recent survey from SADA Systems of IT professionals at large companies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) are the primary areas of focus for enterprise investments in new tech in 2018. Of the 500 IT professionals surveyed, 38% claimed that AI was the primary focus of emerging tech projects, with IoT and blockchain coming in at 31% and 10%, respectively.

IoT connected devices often generate the dizzying amounts of data necessary to train machine learning models. Of companies surveyed, more have IoT workflows already in production than AI. This is because a stable IoT and edge computing foundation are often prerequisites for enterprises to break ground on a machine learning model in the first place, though recent cloud PaaS rollouts of pre-built, adaptable ML models are shaking up the landscape for development.

As the rapid expansion of devices and sensors connected to the Internet of Things continues, the sheer volume of data being created by them will increase to a mind-boggling level. This data will hold extremely valuable insight into what’s working well or what’s not – pointing out conflicts that arise and providing high-value insight into new business risks and opportunities as correlations and associations are made.

However, the big problem will be finding ways to analyze the deluge of performance data and information that all these devices create. If you’ve ever tried to find insight in terabytes of machine data, you know how hard this can be. It’s simply impossible for humans to review and understand all of this data – and doing so with traditional methods, even if you cut down the sample size, simply takes too much time.

So spoken simply: AI can’t exist without IoT data influx training its models, and IoT applications will be either extremely simplistic and un-evolving in small data set scenarios, or even impossible on large ones without AI based pattern recognition and predictive analysis for effective use.

Talk 6: Cloud computing resource management in infrastructure as a service

Cloud computing resource management is an important aspect of concern for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) due to dynamic and global resource demand of the applications running in data centers. Data center provides resources to the virtual machines (VMs), block storage devices, network devices etc.  The resources should be allocated dynamically according to dynamic demands of an application. Over-provisioning results in wastage of resources and increases the overall cost. On the other hand, under-provisioning causes Service Level Agreements (SLA) violation and poor Quality of Service (QoS). Effective provisioning of resources in data center should guarantee best performance and optimized resource utilization to reduce cost. Therefore the allocated resources should be close to the current demand for applications as much as possible. Prediction of future resource demands of the applications enables optimization of the resource usage. Thus, the prediction of the application in different aspects such as workload or performance is an essential step before the resource provisioning. According to the prediction results, sufficient resources are allocated to the applications at the appropriate time in a way that QoS is ensured and SLA violation is avoided. This presentation gives fuzzy logic based application workload demand prediction. This prediction system is later used to detect hot-spots and need for migration. Thus resource provisioning is done locally or remotely using VM migration mechanism of virtual machine monitor (VMM). Finally, open research issues and future trends of the application prediction are discussed.
