Title: Knowledge Discovery and Semantic Learning in the framework of AFS theory
Abstract: Axiomatic Fuzzy Set (AFS) theory facilitates a significant step on how to convert the information in the observed data into fuzzy sets (membership functions) and implement their fuzzy logic operations, which offers a far more flexible and powerful tool for representing human knowledge and emulating the human recognition process. AFS theory has gained increasing interest from various research fields recently. In this survey, we aim to report the current developments of theoretical research and practical advances on AFS theory. We first review some notions and foundations of AFS theory with an illustrative example. Then we focus on the various extensions of AFS theory for knowledge discovery. AFS has recently been extended for formal concept analysis, rough set, clustering, classification and other learning tasks. These newly proposed methods significantly boom the application of AFS theory. Due to its unique characteristic in semantic representation, AFS theory has been applied in many domains, such as business intelligence, computer vision, financial analysis, and clinical data analysis. This survey provides a comprehensive view of these advances in AFS theory and its potential perspectives.

Title: Damping Characteristics of Valve-Controlled Hydraulic Shock Absorber
Abstract: Valve-controlled hydraulic shock absorber is a new type of damping adjustable shock absorber, whose damping effect can be adjusted self-adaptively on the basis of the road condition and driving environment of the vehicle. In this report, the structure composition and working principle of hydraulic shock absorber were analyzed, the hydraulic circuit model of recovery and compression stroke was deduced to build its dynamic model. Mathematical model of electromagnetic field and force of pilot valve are derived, and its electromagnetic field were simulated to reveal the rules of magnetic induction lines and magnetic induction intensity at different input currents. Meanwhile, the influence factors of electromagnetic force of pilot valve are investigated. Furthermore, the electro-hydraulic servo test bench for shock absorber was built to do external characteristic experiments, and comparing with simulation results. Compared with passive suspension system, the comprehensive performance of vehicle suspension system based on hydraulic shock absorber is significantly improved under PID control, SaFPID and PcFPID. In which, the PcFPID can realize the self-tuning and adaptive control of vehicle's own vibration, improve the vehicle ride comfort and handling stability in a variety of different road excitation conditions.

Title:Artificial Intelligence Theories and Methods for COVID-19 recognition
Abstract: COVID-19 is a pandemic disease that caused more than 6.32 million deaths until 23/June/2022. A CT scan is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to get detailed images of the body noninvasively for diagnostic purposes. This talk will discuss the recent AI theories and methods in chest CT-based COVID-19 diagnosis. Two other chest-related diseases: secondary pulmonary tuberculosis and community-acquired pneumonia, will be covered in this talk.
