2020 The 5th International Conference on Information and Education Innovations

The 5th International Conference on Information and Education Innovations (ICIEI 2020) will be held in London, United Kingdom during July 26-28, 2020. ICIEI 2020 aims to bring together researchers around the world to exchange their experiences. The conference will be held annually to provide an ideal platform for people to share new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Information and Education Innovations, and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. It is one of the leading international conferences for presenting novel and fundamental advances in the field.

ICIEI 2020 will feature several plenary speakers, invited speakers as well as peer-reviewed paper presentations. Participants can join the conference by the following three types: 1. Full Paper 2. Abstract 3. Listeners.


Due to the severe impact of the epidemic, the organizing committee has called an emergency meeting and made the final decision: The onsite presentation will be replaced by the online presentation, which will allow all participants to connect and take part in the sessions from your own computer(s). The health and safety of our participants is our top priority. Thanks for your kind understanding!

"Convolutional Neural Networks Challenges"

Abstract: Artificial intelligence and machine learning as its subset are undeniably among the most important developments in the recent history. Classification is one of the common tasks in machine learning used in various fields such as healthcare, security, agriculture, astronomy, and many more. Numerous applications require classification of images where one of the crucial factors that affects classification accuracy is the choice of the features. Image classification was widely studied in the past decades and huge progress was made a few years ago with the introduction of the convolutional neural networks. Convolutional neural networks represent a special class of deep neural networks that are achieving spectacular results in tackling different image classification problems. Building a CNN with the powerful tools that are available nowadays is a rather simple task while the improvement in the classification accuracy compared to the existing methods is significant. Even though it is relatively easy to implement and modify CNNs, finding the optimal configuration and architecture is a challenging task. To achieve the best possible results it is necessary to adjust various hyper-parameters such as the number and type of layers, number of neurons in each layer, kernel size, optimization algorithm, and many others and the optimal CNN for one dataset is not necessarily optimal for the other. Currently, there is no efficient method for tuning CNNs’ hyperparameters and determining its architecture. The usual method for setting CNN’s configuration is by guessing and estimating (guestimating) better values for the hyper-parameters. Since adjusting CNNs’ hyperparameters for the concrete problem represents a hard optimization problem, it can be solved by swarm intelligence algorithms. This process is time consuming but several studies show that adjusting CNNs’ hyperparameters by swarm intelligence algorithms improves the classification accuracy. Another challenge with the CNN models is that automatically extracted features can be used for differencing instances from different classes but they are not easy for understanding and interpretation which is a highly desirable characteristic, especially when CNN is used for tasks such as medical diagnostics or for controlling autonomous vehicles. There is an effort in the scientific community to overcome this problem and to understand features extracted by the CNNs.

Prof. John MacIntyre
University of Sunderland, UK

I have worked at the University of Sunderland since 1992, having graduated from the University with a First Class Honours Degree in Combined Science (Computer Science and Physiology). I then went on to complete a PhD in applied artificial intelligence, focussing on the use of neural networks in predictive maintenance, which was awarded in 1996. During the 1990s I established a research centre – the Centre for Adaptive Systems – at the University, which became recognised by the UK government as a Centre of Excellence for applied research in adaptive computing and artificial intelligence. The Centre undertook many projects working with and for external organisations in industry, science and academia, and for three years ran the Smart Software for Decision Makers programme on behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry. I have successfully supervised in PhDs in fields ranging from neural networks, hybrid systems, and bioinformatics through to lean manufacturing, predictive maintenance, and business and maintenance strategies. I went on to become Associate Dean, and then Dean, of the School of Computing and Technology, covering Computer Science and Engineering; in 2008 I became the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science, and in 2010 Pro Vice Chancellor of the University. I am, and have, been a member of many regional, national and international organisations linked to my own research or professional areas, or on behalf of the University. Since 1996 I have been the Editor-in-Chief of Neural Computing & Applications, an international scientific peer reviewed journal published by Springer Verlag. Prior to entering academia I worked in industry including several years working overseas on major civil and structural engineering projects, developing and implementing new computerised planning systems.
