Speech Title: Intelligent Utility-Driven Data Analysis

Abstract: As a large amount of data is collected daily from individuals, businesses, and other organizations or applications, various algorithms have been developed to identify interesting and useful patterns in data that meet a set of requirements specified by a user. The main purpose of data analysis and data mining is to find new, potentially useful patterns that can be used in real-world applications. For example, analyzing customer transactions in a retail store can reveal interesting patterns about customer buying behavior that can then be used for decision making. In recent years, the demand for utility-oriented pattern mining and analytics has increased because it can discover more useful and interesting information than basic binary-based pattern mining approaches, which has been used in many domains and applications, e.g., cross-marketing, e-commerce, finance, medical and biomedical applications. In this talk, I will first highlight the benefits by using the utility-oriented pattern mining and analytics compared to the past studies (e.g., association rule/frequent itemset mining). I will then provide a general overview of the state of the art in utility-oriented pattern mining and analytic techniques according to three main categories (i.e., data level, constraint level, and application level). Several techniques and modeling on different aspects (levels) of utility-oriented pattern mining will be presented and reviewed.

Speech Title:  Uncertain Public R&D Project Portfolio Selection Considering Sectoral Balancing and Project Failure

Abstract:  In order to promote scientific and technological innovation and sustainable development, public funding agencies select and fund a large number of R&D projects every year. To guarantee the performance of the resulting project portfolio and the government’s investment benefits, the decision maker needs to select appropriate projects and determine a reasonable funding amount for each selected project. In the process of project selection, it is necessary to consider the balance of funding allocated to different scientific sectors as well as the failure probability of the projects in future execution, so that the expected performance of the project portfolio is maximized as much as possible. In view of this, we propose and study the uncertain public R&D project portfolio selection problem considering sectoral balancing and project failure. We formulate a stochastic programming model for the problem to support the portfolio decisions of the funding agencies. We also transform the model into an equivalent deterministic second-order cone programming model that can be directly solved by exact solvers. We generate datasets reflecting different scenarios through simulation and perform computational experiments to validate our model. The impacts of various factors (i.e., the number of project proposals, project failure probability, the upper limit of the budget allocated to each project, and the decision maker’s tolerance for project failure) on the project portfolio performance are analyzed.
