Title: Big Data Analytics: Opportunities in Business and Service Revolution
Abstract: There are growing demands in smart and integrated services in the areas such as health care, aging and aged care, travel planning. Big data analytics offers technical support for getting insights and making decisions. In this talk we will look at the landscape of services particularly services exposed in the social media: service trust and reputation, service recommendation, service credibility, and service quality. These are the building blocks for building smart and integrated services.

Title: AI for CPS Cyber-Security
Abstract: Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are often safety-critical yet they are challenging to analyze. In this talk, I will introduce our recent attempts on solving research problems associated with cyber-security of CPS with techniques developed in the machine learning and software engineering community. Firstly, I will show a practical approach which applies program mutation and machine learning to attest CPS, so as to detect code-modification attacks. Secondly, I will present our effort on developing an efficient and effective fuzzer for CPS, to identify security vulnerabilities. Both techniques have been evaluated on real-world CPS. The talk is based on our papers at IEEE S&P 2018, ICSE 2018, ASE 2019 and ISSTA 2020.
