    Speech Title: Visionary Integration: Enhancing AGVs with Vision Systems and Machine Perception
    Abstract: Service robots represent a transformative application of robotics that profoundly impacts human life, spanning domains from healthcare to industry. These robots serve as lifesavers and support systems, alleviating humans from strenuous tasks and repetitive work that might compromise accuracy in job execution. According to ISO 8373:2012, service robots encompass two main types: personal service robots, designed for use outside manufacturing, and professional service robots, catering to non-commercial and commercial purposes. These robots operate on a spectrum from semi-autonomous to fully autonomous, gradually gaining acceptance as invaluable human assistants across diverse applications and professions. Industries are increasingly integrating service robots into their production lines, marking a pivotal shift within the context of the industrial revolutions. The first revolution brought mechanization, followed by the second revolution powered by electricity. Industry 4.0, however, intertwines digital and internet technologies, propelling further innovation and evolution in the realm of technology. Within this discourse, the focus narrows to AGV (Automated Guided Vehicles) and MIR (Mobile Industrial Robots) as exemplary service robots. The discussion delves into the modeling steps and simulation processes involved in their creation. Additionally, it scrutinizes the performance of designed AGVs employing various algorithms. This analysis aims to serve as a guide for researchers, offering insights and practical implementations for diverse control systems within modeled systems.

    Prof. Qiu Daowen, Sun Yat-sen University, China

    My main research outcomes have been in the following areas. (1) Quantum models of computation. (2) Quantum query algorithms. (3) Quantum cryptograpy and quantum communication. (4) Quantum states distinguishablility and quantum states cloning. (5) Theory of computation based on quantum and lattice-valued logic. (5) The applications of fuzzy and probabilistic automata to discrete event systems, focusing on diagnosability and supervisory control.
    We have published over 130 papers in peer-review journals, and over 25 conferences papers. More specifically, (1) we have systematically studied a number of different QFA (quantum finite automata) models, and solved the decidability of equivalence and minimization of these QFA models (D. Qiu, L. Li, X. Zou, P. Mateus, J. Gruska, Acta Informatica, 2011, 48 (5-6): 271-290; P. Mateus, D. Qiu, L. Li, Information and Computation, 2012, 218: 36-53;L. Li, D. Qiu, Theoretical Computer Science, 2008, 403(1): 42-51). Therefore, we have answered the problems of how to decide the equivalence of quantum sequential machines proposed by Professor Gudder, and how to decide the equivalence of MM-1QFA proposed by Professor Gruska. In particular, we have answered the problems of how to minimize QFAs proposed by Moore and Crutchfield. We proposed a model of quantum-classical finite automata, named as one-way quantum finite automata together with classical states (D. Qiu, L. Li, P. Mateus, A. Sernadas, Journal of Computer and System Sciences, 2015, 81(2): 359-375). Also, we have studied some properties of 2QFAC, quantum pushdown automata, and quantum Turing machines. (2) We have proved the characterization of all Boolean functions that can be solved by quantum 1-query algorithm. (3) We have studied quantum states discrimination and quantum cloning machines, and we have derived some bounds on unambiguous discrimination and minimum-error discrimination (some bounds are optimal to a certain extent), and some relationships between unambiguous discrimination and minimum-error discrimination have been clarified. Also, we have established a generic machine model of probabilistic cloning and deleting, and proposed a universal probabilistic deleting machine. (4) We have studied quantum teleportation and superdence coding based on different entangled states (W-states). (5) We have studied semi-quantum cryptography and proved that a semi-quantum key distribution protocol is unconditional security. (6) We have discovered some essential connections between quantum logic and models of computation, and we have established residuated lattice-valued automata theory (D. Qiu, Information and Computation, 2004, 190(2): 179-195). (6) We have established a fundamental framework of the supervisory control for fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES) and developed the supervisory control of probabilistic discrete event systems (PDES), using fuzzy automta and probabilistic automata, respectively.

    Speech Title: Distributed Grover's algorithm together with realization of Oracles
    Abstract: In this talk, we would present two distributed Grover’s algorithms. Our distributed Grover’s algorithms require fewer qubits and have a linear advantage in time complexity compared to the original Grover's algorithm. Also, the number of qubits in our distributed Grover's algorithm is less than that in Grover's algorithm. Finally, we give an efficient algorithm of constructing quantum circuits for realizing the oracle corresponding to any Boolean function with conjunctive normal form (CNF).

    Speech Title: Multiparameter Performance Monitoring for Optical Communications Channels Using Deep Learning
    Abstract: In recent years, deep learning has come to the forefront as a promising technology to aid in multiparameter performance monitoring for optical communications channels. In this talk, we will introduce CNN-based techniques to effectively monitor multiple system performance parameters of optical channels using eye diagram measurements. Experimental results demonstrate this method achieves a prediction accuracy >98% when tasked with identifying the modulation format (QPSK, 8-QAM, or 16-QAM), as well as the optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR), roll-off factor (ROF), and timing skew for 32 GBd coherent channels. For PAM-based intensity-modulation direct detection (IMDD) channel eye-diagram-based CNN method maintain >97% identification accuracy for 432 classes under different combinations of probabilistic shaping (PS), ROF, baud rate, OSNR, and chromatic dispersion (CD) by each modulation format. Furthermore, we undertake on an extensive comparison of ResNet-18, MobileNetV3 and EfficientNetV2. Our designed VGG-based model of reduced layers, alongside the lightweight MobileNetV3, demonstrates enhanced cost-effectiveness while maintaining high accuracy.
