International Conference on Modern Intelligent Systems Concepts

December 11 – 12, 2018

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

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.



Keynote 2. Pr. Abderrafiaa KOUKAM Dr. Abderrafiaa Koukam (Abder Koukam) is a professor at the “Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard” (UTBM). He obtained his Ph.D at the “Université de Nancy 1” and his Habilitation to direct research at the “Université de Bourgogne”. He was Director of the “Laboratoire Systèmes et Transports”, Vice President of the Scientific Council of UTBM, Director of Computer Science Departement and the founder of the team Multi-agent Systems and Optimization. His research focuses on multi-agent systems: modeling, simulation, verification. He assumed the coordination of two European projects (TRASCOM 2002-2004, SURE 2003-2005), several national projects (CRISTAL, ANR SafePlatoon,…), and contracts with industry in the following areas: transportation planning, mobile networks, traffic flow simulation in industrial sites, and intelligent vehicle.
