Kyberneticko-fyzický systém pre epidemiologický tele-monitoring a tele-medicínu pre pacientov s COVID 19
Annotation: The aim of the project is research and development of Cyber-Physical System (CPS) for tele-monitoring and tele-medicine in hospital care during pandemic situations, including the following embedded systems: mechanical system, hardware, software, sensors, IoT devices, communication system and web-based user interface containing the necessary functions for work in the hospital environment. This complex system will be controlled via the Internet. The cyber-physical system for epidemiological monitoring in hospital care will be built by a specialized modular Robot-Assistant, and IoT devices together with a system for a seamless communication and aggregation of sensory and multimodal data for tele-medicine and tele-monitoring of the patients with Covid 19. Thus, the physical contact between the medical staff with patients will be limited. Moreover, the risk of repeated daily exposure to corona virus for physicians during each manipulation will be greatly reduced. The project will boost up the cooperation of two academic institutions with complementary research activities. Participating PhD students and young researchers will gain experience from international cooperation, from which they will benefit in their further professional career.
Development of machine learning models for high-performance computing
Návrh modelov strojového učenia pre vysoko-výkonné počítanie.
Annotation: Nowadays, Machine learning (ML) is important and relevant trend in the development of modern computer science. ML is not new concept it was part of the field of artificial intelligence for a long time. The main idea focuses on building algorithms that can learn on their own, but recent advances in computing systems and the availability of big data create impressive progress from checkers solving program to self-moved cars and programs that recognize single face from thousands of photos. One of the applications of ML is to improve the efficiency of computations by tuning parameters of environment. Here we deal with complex computational program as with black box, which dynamic depends on parameters. In this project we propose to investigate process of auto tuning of parallel program on heterogeneous multiprocessor system. This problem is important and has some features, that makes it hard for solving. First of all, data and environment can influence performance of program in crucial way. Also, in some setups algorithm can control scheduling making strategy time-dependant.Secondly, an important feature is the presence of competing users. It is necessary to ensure fair and equal access to resources. Because each user is a rational agent and seeks to increase his or her share of the resource at the expense of others, an unbalanced distribution algorithm can shift the system to an inefficient equilibrium. This is problem of game theory. There are notable connections of ML methods with game theory. For example we can mention GANs (generative Adversarial Nets) corresponding to a two-player game, SVM (support vector machine) connected with zero-sum two-player game, and others. This project proposes the following approaches to address the problem. The first is model-free reinforcement machine learning, which is trying to find the best possible control strategy. Secondly, it is the application of the game-theoretic approach, in which the formalized user behavior is involved in the system. Each user has their own learning algorithm and is a rational agent who wants to get some of the computing resource and maximize its utility function. The project continues previous collaboration between institutes in the design of adaptive programming methods for high-performance computing in heterogeneous multiprocessor environments.Project objectives:The purpose of the project is to analyze and synthesize new machine learning algorithms in concurrent high-performance computing. Existing machine learning algorithms are usually heuristic solutions, the quality of which depends on the data and training parameters. One of the promising areas of better understanding of the work is the application of game-theoretical approaches to modeling the learning process of competing algorithms. The results of the game analysis will help to describe the optimal behavior of users at the point of equilibrium and to calculate the characteristics of schedulers and translation algorithms.

Modern Paradigms in the Field of Intelligent Systems
Annotation: The aim of the project is to study the analysis of various contemporary paradigms from the area of artificial intelligence and intelligent systems. In this sense, it is of particular interest to research the plethora of techniques for deduction, reasoning and decision making under indeterminacy or uncertainty, based on intelligent systems and their extensions and modifications. A major emphasis in the present project will be the latest researche of members of the Bulgarian team with respect of the possibilities for building new intelligent approaches for analysis. In application aspect, as a consequence of these theoretical researche, we can outline one of the leading directions of research in the field of intelligent systems, related to launching of new development of existing techniques of predictive model control. It represents a modern kind of management of complex business and production systems, functioning under conditions of uncertainty and dynamically changing parameters of the environment, and characterized by one or more of the following features: high degree of risk, parallelism, distribution, resource competition, etc. Solving such complex applied problems requires analysis, synthesis and development of original multi-model approaches to predictive diagnostics based on analytical and experimental models, using knowledge based methods from the area of intelligent systems.

The proposed methods and techniques will be used in the university education process. The efficiency of the test techniques is classified by the fault coverage therefore the testability techniques will be targeted to covering as much defects as possible based on a defect analysis of the selected CMOS technology.
Development of software tools for analysis and synthesis of schedulers for cloud computing
Návrh softvérových nástrojov pre analýzu a syntézu plánovačov pre počítanie v cloude
Annotation: Modern scientific problems require significant computing resources, so the problem of resources optimization in multiprocessor environments is very important. We will focus on cloud systems as one of the most recent and promising fields of high-performance computing. Cloud computing systems operate in complex heterogeneous environments. It is common to have a single physical server with many simultaneous programs from different users competing for computing and network resources. In most cases, especially for public cloud, the user is unable to control the distribution of resources.The allocation algorithms may contain defects and inefficiency and this can lead to a significant increase in processing time, that is why cloud computing require efficient algorithms providing flexible and stable allocation of resources. The problem is in unfair and uneven access to resources, caused by heterogeneity of users and their tasks where each user is rational agent that tries to increase its share of resources. This could bring the system to the inefficient equilibrium., so a key element of cloud systems are efficient algorithms for load distribution – schedulers and brokers, providing services to users.The idea of this project is to apply game-theoretic approach to the problem of scheduling and allocation of computing resources in dynamic heterogeneous environment with many competitive users and provide software tools based on game-theoretic construction.Another idea of the project is an optimization approach that respects the requirements of end-users. This task will be modelled as a multi-criteria optimization problem. Each objective of the optimization will be associated with a weight. The weight will express the priority of the optimization objective. This way of the optimization will enable the end-users to adjust it to their needs. The problem will be sorted out in a general way so the solution will support various cloud providers.The project continues the previous cooperation of our Institute in constructing adaptive methods for programming high-performance computing on heterogeneous multiprocessor systems.
Nonverbal speech gestures in Slovak in multimodal and multicultural context
Neverbálne rečové gestá v slovenčine v multimodálnom a multikulturálnom kontexte
Annotation: The project is aimed at the research of non-verbal speech gestures. The basic set of these gestures in current spoken Slovak is to be defined In the course of the project. This set will be investigated in relation to other modalities (text, lexical speech gestures, static video representation - picture/photo, and dynamic video representation - video/film.)The research will also include comparative studies in multi-cultural context. For the main goals we have chosen the research on these gestures in Slovak-Hungarian language pair (diametrically different languages, very close cultural and historical context), and Slovak-Japanese (diametrically different languages). The expected results will be both theoretical, with a new contribution to the knowledge on speech communication including sound speech gestures, and on their relation to text and video representations, as well as to the intercultural research in this area.The results will be applied practically in the expressive speech synthesis and the expressive speech recognition.
Advanced methods for distributed intelligent and knowledge oriented contro
Pokročilé metódy pre distribuované inteligentné a znalostne orientované riadenie
Annotation: The project is oriented on research of distributed intelligent and knowledge oriented control systems with strong emphasis on manufacturing and production systems and applications in all levels of enterprise control. The distributed intelligent control systems means a set of embedded control systems using knowledge base, and artificial intelligence technology together with approaches of the classic theory of control focused on special applications, such as production processes, supply chains, economic processes, environmental and social processes. Research in the field of distributed intelligent control systems is focussed on using web services and web application. Web services technology enable to develop an integrated infrastructure that allows e.g. supply chain partners to connect simulations of their facilities over the Internet. Data specifications are needed to identify the types of information that will need to be exchanged between different suppliers models, manufacturing applications, and databases. Web-based solutions will enable the integration at the supply-chain, enterprise, plant, and shop-floor levels.
