BDML 2018

First international conference on Big Data and Machine Learning was closed successfully in Nagoya during November 23-25, 2018. The plenary lectures and the progress and special reports bridged the gap between the different fields of Big Data and Machine Learning, making it possible for non-experts in a given area to gain insight into new areas. Papers of BDML2018 were indexed by EI Compendex and Scopus!

He has delivered keynote, plenary, and invited lectures in several international conferences and workshops in the U.S., Europe, South America, and India.

Prof. Kazumi Nakamatsu,  University of Hyogo, JAPAN

Speech Title: Application of Paraconsistent Annotated Logic Program EVALPSN to Intelligent Control/Safety Verification (Download Abstract)

Kazumi Nakamatsu received the Ms. Eng. and Dr. Sci. from Shizuoka University and Kyushu University, Japan, respectively. He is a full Professor at School of Human Science and Environment, University of Hyogo, Japan.
His research interests encompass various kinds of logic and their applications to Computer Science, especially paraconsistent annotated logic programs and their applications. He has developed some paraconsistent annotated logic programs called ALPSN(Annotated Logic Program with Strong Negation), VALPSN(Vector ALPSN), EVALPSN(Extended VALPSN) and bf-EVALPSN (before-after EVALPSN) recently, and applied them to various intelligent systems such as a safety verification based railway interlocking control system and process order control. He is an author of over 150 papers and book chapters, and edited 7 books published by prominent publishers.
Kazumi Nakamatsu has chaired various international conferences, workshops and invited sessions, and he has been a member of numerous international program committees of workshops and conferences in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science. He serves as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Reasoning-based Intelligent Systems by Inderscience Publishers(UK) and an editorial board member of many international journals. He has contributed numerous invited lectures at international workshops, conferences, and academic organizations. He also is a recipient of some conference and paper awards. He is a member of Japan AI Society, IEEE, etc.
