Keynote Speech/主题演讲 - Zong-Ben Xu/ 徐宗本

Zong-Ben Xu, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is a mathematician and an expert in signal and information processing. He received his MS degree in mathematics in 1981 from Northwest University, China and PhD degree in applied mathematics in 1987 from Xi`an Jiaotong University, China. He now serves as professor of mathematics and computer science, and director of the Institute for Information and System Sciences at Xi'an Jiaotong University. In 2007, he was appointed as a Chief Scientist of National Basic Research Program of China (973 Project).

His current reserach interest includes intelligent information processing, machine learning and theories in numerical modeling. He proposed the L(1/2) regulation theory, which serves as foundations for sparse microwave imaging. He also discovered and proves Xu-Roach Theom in machine learning, which solves several difficult problems in nueral networks and simulated evolutionary computation, and provides a general deduction criteria for machine learning and nonlinear analysis under Non-Euclidean fromwork. Lastly, Prof. Xu has initiated new modeling theories and  methodologies based on visual cognition, and formulated a series of new algorithms for clustering analysis, discriminant analysis, and latent viable analysis, which have been widely applied to science and engineering. He is owner of the National Natural Science Award of China in 2007,and winner of CSIAM Su Buchin Applied Mathematics Prize in 2008. He delivered a sectional talk at International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2010) upon the invitation of the congress committee.

Zongben Xun has been the vice-president of Xi’an Jiaotong University. He currently provides important services for government and professional societies, including the deputy director for the department of Information and Technology Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; director of the Xi’an International Academy for Mathematics and Mathematical Technology; director for the National Engineering Laboratory for Big Data Analytics; member of National Big Data Expert Advisory Committee and member of National Open Innovation Platform for New Generation Artificial Intelligence and Strategic Advisory Committee.

徐宗本,中国科学院院士、应用数学家、信号与信息处理专家。西安交通大学教授。1955年1月生于陕西省柞水县, 籍贯安徽岳西。1976年毕业于西北大学数学系, 1982年和1987年分别于西安交通大学获理学硕士和博士学位。 

 主要从事智能信息处理、机器学习、数据建模基础理论研究。提出了稀疏信息处理的L(1/2)正则化理论, 为稀疏微波成像新体制提供了重要基础。发现并证明机器学习的“徐-罗奇”定理, 解决了神经网络与模拟演化计算中的一些困难问题, 为非欧氏框架下机器学习与非线性分析提供了普遍的数量推演准则; 提出了基于视觉认知的数据建模新原理与新方法,形成了聚类分析、判别分析、隐变量分析等系列数据挖掘核心算法, 并广泛应用于科学与工程领域。曾获国家自然科学二等奖、国家科技进步二等奖、中国CSIM苏步青应用数学奖, 并在世界数学家大会(2010, 印度)上作45分钟特邀报告。
