Speech Title: Transfer Learning in Chemical Sensing System for Olfactory Perception


Vision-language has been widely studied in AI community. However, machine olfaction is relatively paid less attention. In this talk, I will present our research progress toward olfactory intelligence. First, I will introduce the background, preliminary and challenges of machine olfaction techniques, then the problems of chemical sensors that hinders olfaction development in perception are formally proposed. After that, transfer learning will be comprehensively introduced from the concept, theory and algorithms. Finally, I will present how to solve the olfactory pattern analysis using transfer learning algorithms.


Dr. Lei Zhang is currently a full professor with School of Microelectronics and Communication Engineering, Chongqing University, China, and director of Chongqing Key Laboratory of Bio-perception & Multimodal Intelligent Information Processing. His research interests include pattern recognition, machine learning, computer vision and machine olfaction. He has authored more than 150 scientific papers in IEEE Trans. journals and top conferences. He serves as associate editors for several journals such as IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, Neural Networks, CAAI Transactions on Intelligence and Technology, etc. and also serves as area chairs and program committees for more than 20 conferences such as ACM MM, AAAI, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ICML, ICLR, NeurIPS, IJCAI, etc.
