Distinguished Speaker: Convergence of Mathematical Models for System Performance and AI, to improve Quality of Service, Sustainability and Security"

Abstract: AI has been progressively introduced into network analysis and optimization as some kind of "distinct" or "new" modelling methodology. In this talk we will show that the same types of Markov models that have been historically used in network analysis, are also used for Machine Learning (ML) based network optimization techniques. The presentation will rely on G-Network theory which will recalled at the beginning of the lecture, and then illustrated for an Edge performance, security and energy optimization, and for ML based algorithm design for exactly the same problems.
Bio: Erol Gelenbe FIEEE'86 FACM'02 FIFIP'19 FRSS'22 FAAIA'23, works on the performance, security, and energy consumption of computer systems and networks. He is the inventor of mathematical models such as G-Networks and Random Neural Networks. His recent work includes the dynamic control of computer systems and the Internet using Machine Learning and systems analysis. His recent role in EU funded research includes the Projects NEMESYS and SerIoT on the cybersecurity of Mobile Networks and the Internet of Things (IoT). He is currently a Principal Investigator in the Horizon 2020 Projects DOSS. Over the years, he has received research funding from CNRS, INRIA, NSF, ONR and ARO (USA), FNRS (Belgium), EPSRC and MoD (UK), and the European Union ESPRIT, FP6, FP7 and Horizon Programs. According to the Mathematics Genealogy Project, Erol has graduated some 95 PhDs in a career that spans institutions in France (University of Paris-Saclay, University Paris-Descartes), USA (Duke University and UCF), Belgium (University of Liege), UK (Imperial College) and currently Poland IITIS-PAN (Polish Academy of Sciences). Elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Belgium, the French National Academy of Technologies, and the Science Academies of Hungary, Poland and Turkey, he has published over 400 papers and several books. He was awarded the Legion d'Honneur by France, the Commander of Merit medals by France and Italy, and the honor of Commander of the Order of the Crown by Belgium.
