Digital transformation is a cultural, organizational and operational change of an organization, industry or ecosystem through a smart integration of digital technologies, processes and competencies across all levels and functions. The keynote speech covers the main streams of digital transformation in industry and business. Detailed parts will be devoted to Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep learning, Big Data, Internet of Things, System of Systems, Cyber Physical Systems, and Blockchains.
The next part of the presentation summarizes our research and development results and ideas of a newly developed software engine, called MAXWHERE as a good example of how do we move to a digital world. MAXWHERE provides effective working environments with spatial (Virtual Reality) multimedia arrangement and Intelligent System of Systems connectivity.
The last part of the lecture will discuss the questions: How far do we go? What are the expectations and the question of Singularity?
Prof. Imre J. Rudas
Óbuda University, Hungary
Imre J. Rudas graduated in Budapest in 1971 in Mechanical Engineering, received the Master Degree in Mathematics from the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, the Ph.D. in Robotics from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1987, while the Doctor of Science degree from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 2004.
He is Rudolf Kalman Distinguished Professor, Rector Emeritus and Professor Emeritus of Óbuda University.
Her objective is to develop methods and tools to assist in making decisions that guarantee a good performance to production systems, despite uncertainties. The decisions to be made concern the design of production systems (including the control or maintenance policies to be implemented), as well as the planning of activities to be carried out, or the management of flows, with a special interest in the sustainability and human aspects.
He received Doctor Honoris Causa degree from the Technical University of Košice, Slovakia, from “Polytechnica” University of Timisoara, Romania, from Óbuda University, and from Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. He was awarded by the Honorary Professor title in 2013 and Ambassador Title by Wroclaw University of Science and Technology.
He is a Life Fellow of IEEE and the Junior Past President of IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. He is a Fellow of International Fuzzy systems Association.
His present areas of research activities are Computational Cybernetics, Cyber Physical Control, Robotics, Systems of Systems. He has edited and/or published 22 three books, published more than 850 papers in international scientific journal, conference proceedings and book chapters, and received more than 7000 citations.
