11/10(五)_Toward Foundation AI Models in Smart Manufacturing_主講人：陳維超 數位長暨資深副總經理 (英業達股份有限公司)
題 目：Toward Foundation AI Models in Smart Manufacturing
The primary challenges of using AI in smart manufacturing include scope change, verification difficulty, and transfer quality. Ill-defined requirements often result in shifts in data collection scopes and concepts. The rarity of real manufacturing failures poses problems in verifying model quality. The need to scale out model deployment also implies stringent conditions for domain transfer. This talk discusses our recent progress and observations in these respective areas. In particular, we focus on technologies regarding the trustworthy exchange of datasets, which lays the foundations for models that can be widely applicable to various application scenarios in robotics, contactless sensing, and visual inspection.

11/3(五)_Generating Moral Machines_主講人:Prof. Shao-Man Lee (Miin Wu School of Computing, National Cheng Kung University)
題 目：Generating Moral Machines
This speech investigates the capabilities of large language models, specifically GPT-3.5 in accurately representing human moral judgments across diverse cultures. Using the Moral Machine experiment as a testbed, her research examines GPT-3.5 ’s decision making under varying cultural contexts.
While results indicate GPT-3.5 exhibits some ability to approximate human moral inclinations, significant discrepancies remain compared to experimental data, especially regarding nuanced cultural preferences. Her research highlights challenges for AI in precisely replicating complex and variable human moral expression. It underscores the need for incorporating heterogeneous values into model training to better portray inclusive, multi-faceted global decision-making.
Shao-Man Lee is an assistant professor who applies computational techniques to study socio legal issues. With a background in law, she utilizes natural language processing methods to elucidate topics ranging from judicial behavior to risk communication during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through an interdisciplinary approach that synthesizes law, social sciences, and AI, her research aims to provide data driven insights into legal and social phenomena.
10/31(二)_Music-conditioned pluralistic dancing and a multi-camera system_主講人:Prof. Sanghoon Lee (Yonsei University, Korea)
題 目：Music-conditioned pluralistic dancing and a multi-camera system
In this talk, I would like to present “music-conditioned pluralistic dancing” and what we have done in our lab. toward building a multi-camera system for future research. When coming up with phrases of movement, choreographers all have their habits as they are used to their skilled dance genres. Therefore, they tend to return certain patterns of the dance genres that they are familiar with. What if artificial intelligence could be used to help choreographers blend dance genres by suggesting various dances, and one that matches their choreographic style? Numerous task-specific variants of autoregressive networks have been developed for dance generation. Yet, a serious limitation remains that all existing algorithms can return repeated patterns for a given initial pose sequence, which may be inferior. To mitigate this issue, we proposed MNET, a novel and scalable approach that can perform music-conditioned pluralistic dance generation synthesized by multiple dance genres using only a single model. Here, we learned a dance genre aware latent representation by training a conditional generative adversarial network leveraging Transformer architecture. After demonstration of the dancing, I would like to introduce the effort of our labs. for implementation of our multi-camera system. From the camera-system, we can expect numerous possibilities of developing core technologies in the fusion research areas of combining computer vision and computer graphics.

7/21(五)_On the 2nd AI Wave: Toward Interpretable, Reliable, and Sustainable AI_主講人：郭宗杰院士（南加州大學教授）
(University of Southern California)
題 目：On the 2nd AI Wave: Toward Interpretable, Reliable, and Sustainable AI
Rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI) in the last decade have been primarily attributed to the wide applications of deep learning (DL) technologies. I view these advances as the first AI wave. There are concerns with the first AI wave. DL solutions are a black box (i.e., not interpretable) and vulnerable to adversarial attacks (i.e., unreliable). Besides, the high carbon footprint yielded by large DL networks is a threat to our environment (i.e., not sustainable). Many researchers are looking for an alternative solution that is interpretable, reliable, and sustainable. This is expected to be the second AI wave. To this end, I have conducted research on green learning (GL) since 2015. GL was inspired by DL. Low carbon footprints, small model sizes, low computational complexity, and mathematical transparency characterize GL. It offers energy-effective solutions in cloud centers and mobile/edge devices. It has three main modules: 1) unsupervised representation learning, 2) supervised feature learning, and 3) decision learning. GL has been successfully applied to a few applications. I will use deepfake video detection and blind image/video quality assessment as two examples to demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the GL solutions.
