In recent years, everyone is talking about Artificial Intelligence and Data Science and their obvious involvements in almost every field. Nowadays more than ever, we think it is the right time to approach these disciplines to better contribute to their orientation in the service of humanity. Our goal is to lead Artificial Intelligence and Data Science 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 Artificial Intelligence and Data Science Systems (MAIDSS) focuses on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (AI&DS), their applications and how AI&DS 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 favored the emergence of frauds and other cyber-criminal activities. AI coupled to DS can be used to safeguard and protect users from these kinds of threats. AI&DS are potentially offering solutions to many practical issues of everyday life and if well exploited can positively revolutionize the life of the people.

MAIDSS 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 to exchange ideas, debates and networking between academics and entrepreneurs around the key issues of research, development and innovation in the various fields of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and their 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 in Cloud/Fog/Edge Computing and Internet-of-Things

Prof. Vincenzo Piuri, Vincenzo Piuri, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy,


Recent years have seen a growing interest among users in the migration of their applications to the Cloud/Fog/Edge computing and Internet-of-Things environments. However, due to high complexity, Cloud/Fog/Edge-based and Internet-of-Things infrastructures need advanced components for supporting applications and advanced management techniques for increasing the efficiency.

Adaptivity and autonomous learning abilities become extremely useful to support configuration and dynamic adaptation of these infrastructures to the changing needs of the users as well as to create adaptable applications. This self-adaptation ability is increasingly essential especially for non-expert managers as well as for application designers and developers with limited competences in tools for achieving this ability.

Artificial intelligence is a set of techniques which greatly can improve both the creation of applications and the management of these infrastructures.

This talk will discuss the use of artificial intelligence in supporting the creation of applications in cloud/fog/edge and IoT infrastructures as well as their use in the various aspects of infrastructure management.

Dr. Rachid Alami is Senior Scientist at LAAS-CNRS. He received an engineer diploma in computer science in 1978 from ENSEEIHT, a Ph.D in Robotics in 1983 from Institut National Polytechnique and a Habilitation HDR in 1996 from Paul Sabatier University.

Talk 2: Decisional Issues for Cognitive and Interactive Robots
Prof. Rachid Alami, LAAS-CNRS, ANITI, France,

Abstract. This talk will address some key decisional issues that are necessary for a cognitive and interactive robot, which shares space and tasks with humans. We adopt a constructive approach based on the identification and the effective implementation of individual and collaborative skills. The system is comprehensive since it aims at dealing with a complete set of abilities articulated so that the robot controller is effectively able to conduct in a flexible and fluent manner a human-robot joint action seen as a collaborative problem solving and task achievement. These abilities include geometric reasoning and situation assessment based essentially on perspective-taking and affordances, management and exploitation of each agent (human and robot) knowledge in a separate cognitive model, human-aware task planning and interleaved execution of shared plans. We will also discuss the key issues linked to the pertinence and the acceptability by the human of the robot behaviour, and how this influence qualitatively the robot decisional, planning, control and communication processes.

Talk 4: Reinforcement Learning: Overview and challenges

Dr. Amita Kapoor, Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics Expert, Educator, Author, Expert in Remote Team Management,

Abstract. Reinforcement learning is a rapidly growing field within the realm of artificial intelligence, which involves the use of algorithms to train agents to learn from their interactions with an environment. This talk will provide an overview of the key concepts and challenges of reinforcement learning.

The talk will start with an introduction to the fundamentals of reinforcement learning, including the concepts of state, action, reward, and value functions. It will then delve into the different types of reinforcement learning algorithms, including value-based, policy-based, and model-based methods.

Finally, the talk will explore real-world use cases of reinforcement learning, demonstrating how this technology can be used to solve complex problems in areas such as robotics, gaming, and autonomous driving.
