Takayuki Kanda

Takayuki Kanda is a Group Leader at ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories, Kyoto, Japan. He is one of the starting members of Communication Robots project at ATR. He has developed a communication robot, Robovie, and applied it in daily situations, such as peer-tutor at elementary school and a museum exhibit guide. His research interests include human-robot interaction, interactive humanoid robots, and field trials.

Ian Taylor

Ian Taylor is a Reader Cardiff University. He has a strong track record specialising in the workflow and data distribution areas, with application in audio, astrophysics and healthcare. Ian wrote a 2nd edition professional distributed computing book (sold 2000+) and was lead editor for “Workflows for eScience”. Ian has guest edited for the Journal of Grid Computing and co-chaired the OGF Workflow Management Research Group. He has published 110 papers.

Amit Sheth

Educator, Researcher, and Entrepreneur. Founding Director - AI Institute, NCR Professor, and Professor of Comuter SC & Engg, University of South Carolina. Earlier, LexisNexis Ohio Eminent Scholar. Executive Director, Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) at Wright State University. Elected Fellow IEEE, AAAS, AAAI, ACM, and AAIA. Working towards a vision of Computing for Human Experience. His recent work has focused on knowledge-infused learning and neuro-symbolic AI, semantic-cognitive-perceptual computing, and semantics-empowered Physical-Cyber-Social computing. He coined the terms: Smart Data, Semantic Sensor Web, Semantic Perception, Citizen Sensing, etc. He has (co-)founded four companies, including the first Semantic Search company in 1999 that pioneered technology similar to what is found today in Google Semantic Search and Knowledge Graph, ezDI, which developed knowledge-infused clinical NLP/NLU, and Cognovi Labs at the intersection of emotion and AI. He is particularly proud of the success of his >45 Ph.D. advisees and postdocs.
