Djamel Bouchaffra
Professor in Computer Science
Oakland University, Michigan, USA

Keynote Title: Machine learning paradigms for patterns classification


Djamel Bouchaffra is a Director of Research at the Center for Development of Advanced Technolgies.  He is currently the Head of the ASM Division. Prior to this appointment, Dr. Djamel Bouchaffra was a Professor of Computer Science at Grambling State University. He started his academic position at Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble (France), and then he held a position of Assistant Professor at  Oakland University, Michigan (USA). His field of research is in Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, Computational Intelligence, Computer Vision, and Signal Processing. He is currently working on the approximation and the learning of topological manifolds embedded in a high-dimensional vector space for object recognition.  Professor Bouchaffra introduced both the structural and the topological hidden Markov models as two paradigms that implement this fusion. His areas of applications include (but are not limited to) Brain Machine Interface, Remote Sensing, Biometrics, Handwriting Recognition, Language Modeling, Speech Recognition, and Bioinformatics. He is the director of the "Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence Laboratory" (PARMIL).
