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.

well as engaging in creative endeavours in writing novels and music. Despite this, it is still a long way from building artificial human intelligence. Current AIs are only designed to excel in their intended functions and cannot generate knowledge to new tasks and situations.
For AI to achieve artificial human intelligence requires us to study and understand the human brain. Neuroscience is the study of the anatomy and physiology of the human brain. It provides us interesting insights into how the brain works to develop better AI systems.
Conversely, better AI systems can help drive neuroscience forward and further unlock the secrets of the brain. Neuroscience and AI are closely related. The synergy of the two will benefit each other. Besides the benefits of neuroscience for AI research, neuroscience also has important implications for machine learning.
This talk discusses the implications of neuroscience for general artificial intelligence and the benefits of AI for neuroscience research.

Talk 2: Artificial Intelligence for Industry, Environment, and Ambient Intelligence

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

Abstract. 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.

Talk 3: 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 6: Agent based approach: Distributed problem solving and complex system modeling
Prof. A. Koukam
Université de Technologie de Belfort Montbéliard
90010 Belfort Cedex France


Multi-agent approach proposes a new vision of problem analysis and system modeling, based on a radical critique of centralized methods. It considers systems as societies of autonomous and independent entities, called agents, which interact to solve a problem or collectively perform a task.
Multi-agent systems are used in several application domains, in particular, robotics, distributed problem solving, modeling and simulation of complex systems.
The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the foundation of this approach by considering the two perspectives: distributed problem solving and simulation of complex systems.
