Session/ Tracks :

Probiotics & Prebiotics

Probiotics are contained with a range of food and nutrition products such as dietary supplements, medicinal foods, biopharmaceuticals and medical devices delivering probiotics. Prebiotics foods are taken as dietary ingredients to maintain the Biological Symbiosis with the microbial flora. Dietary supplements created through the synergism of Pro and Pre-biotic are the Synbiotics. The nutrition supplemented with the beneficial microbial flora and the associated microbiome in human gut, restoring the human digestive system as a whole is said to be the “Probiotics”.

Agriculture Microbiology

Agricultural microbiology which is the most important field of Microbiology for the economic and medical importance it holds. This field explores various aspects like the genetics, physiology, molecular biology, virulence & pathogenicity and other aspects of the plant microbes. It deals with the infectious agents of the microbes, improvements and resistance of the agricultural crops, economic importance and the beneficial aspects of the normal agricultural flora. A complete study and understanding is crucial in application of the microbes for augmentation of soil nutrients, which is increasing the resistance of plants against the plant pathogen, for understanding the interaction a microbe has with the plant, and crop robustness.

Plant Beneficial Microbes

Soil microorganisms are the most abundant of all the biota in soil and responsible for driving nutrient and organic matter cycling, soil fertility, soil restoration, plant health and ecosystem primary production. Beneficial microorganisms include those that create symbiotic associations with plant roots (rhizobia, mycorrhizal fungi, actinomycetes, diazotrophic bacteria), promote nutrient mineralization and availability, produce plant growth hormones, and are antagonists of plant pests, parasites or diseases (biocontrol agents). Many of these organisms are already naturally present in the soil, although in some situations it may be beneficial to increase their populations by either inoculation or by applying various agricultural management techniques that enhance their abundance and activity.

Bowels to Behavior : The Gut-Brain Axis

The ability of gut microbiota to communicate with the brain and thus modulate behavior is emerging as an exciting concept in health and disease. The enteric microbiota interacts with the host to form essential relationships that govern homeostasis. Despite the unique enteric bacterial fingerprint of each individual, there appears to be a certain balance that confers health benefits. It is, therefore, reasonable to note that a decrease in the desirable gastrointestinal bacteria will lead to deterioration in gastrointestinal, neuroendocrine or immune relationships and ultimately disease.

Immunobiotics

The term “Immunobiotics” has been proposed to define microbial strains able to beneficially regulate the mucosal immune system. Over the past few years, we have witnessed the emergence of robust development in the application of immunobiotics to combat infections, and researchers have found that the use of beneficial microbes is an interesting alternative to prevent and reduce the severity of infections in humans and animals. The effect of immunobiotics on the gut innate and adaptive immune responses to enteric pathogens has been recognized conclusively the influence of immunobiotics on the immune responses in distal mucosal sites and its impact in the outcome of respiratory infections has recently been exposed.

Oral Microbiology

Oral microbiology is the study of the microorganisms (microbiota) of the oral cavity and their interactions between oral microorganisms or with the host. Microbes within dental plaque as the cause of dental and periodontal diseases. The collective function of microbial communities is a major driver of homeostasis or dysbiosis and ultimately health or disease. Despite different aetiologies, periodontitis and caries are each driven by a feed forward loop between the microbiota and host factors (inflammation and dietary sugars, respectively) that favours the emergence and persistence of dysbiosis.

Microbiome

A microbiome is the community of microorganisms such as bacteria, archaea, fungi, as well as viruses that inhabit an ecosystem or organism. Microorganisms dominate all other life everywhere scientists have looked, including the human body, the Earth’s soils and sediments, the oceans and fresh waterways, the atmosphere and even extreme environments such as hydrothermal vents and subglacial lakes. Scientists also use the term microbiome to refer to all these genes associated with those life forms.

Marine Microbiology

Marine microbiology is the study of microorganisms and non-organismic microbes that exist in saltwater environments, including the open ocean, coastal waters, estuaries, on marine surfaces and in sediments. Aquatic microbiology is the science that deals with microscopic living organisms in fresh or salt water systems. Aquaculture & Marine Biotechnology helps to control the marine organisms and water borne organisms. It is a process which has to do with marine or underwater environment. Blue Biotechnology is used to protect the marine organisms from harmful diseases underwater. The control of seasonal production and reproduction in farm animals has become major research goals. The applications of biotechnology to fish farming and ornamental fish production are numerous and valuable in both economic (food production, aquarium trade) and environmental terms (conservation of natural biodiversity for endangered species and protection of natural biodiversity from escapee domesticated strains). With the growing demand for fish products, biotechnology can help in the development of high quality, economical produce, thereby reducing pressure on natural population.

Ecology and Evolution of Microbe-Host Interactions

Microbes are typically surrounded by different strains and species with whom they compete for scarce nutrients and limited space. Given such challenging living conditions, microbes have evolved many phenotypes with which they can outcompete and displace their neighbours: secretions to harvest resources, loss of costly genes whose products can be obtained from others, stabbing and poisoning neighbouring cells, or colonising spaces while preventing others from doing so. These competitive phenotypes appear to be common, although evidence suggests that, over time, competition dies down locally, often leading to stable coexistence of genetically distinct lineages. Nevertheless, the selective forces acting on competition and the resulting evolutionary fates of the different players depend on ecological conditions in a way that is not yet well understood. Here, we highlight open questions and theoretical predictions of the long-term dynamics of competition that remain to be tested. Establishing a clearer understanding of microbial competition will allow us to better predict the behaviour of microbes, and to control and manipulate microbial communities for industrial, environmental, and medical purposes.

Engineering Beneficial Microbes

Demands for food, animal feed, and feedstocks for bioenergy and biorefining applications, are increasing with population growth, urbanization and affluence. Low-input, sustainable, alternatives to petrochemical-derived fertilizers and pesticides are required to reduce input costs and maintain or increase yields, with potential biological solutions having an important role to play. Plant–microbe interactions span a wide range of relationships in which one or both of the organisms may have a beneficial, neutral or negative effect on the other partner. A relatively small number of beneficial plant–microbe interactions are well understood and already exploited; however, others remain understudied and represent an untapped reservoir for optimizing plant production. There may be near-term applications for bacterial strains as microbial biopesticides and biofertilizers to increase biomass yield from energy crops grown on land unsuitable for food production. Longer term aims involve the design of synthetic genetic circuits within and between the host and microbes to optimize plant production. A highly exciting prospect is that endosymbionts comprise a unique resource of reduced complexity microbial genomes with adaptive traits of great interest for a wide variety of applications.

Why Toronto, Canada?

Toronto is Canada’s largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It’s a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world’s most livable cities. Toronto has a vibrant history of change and growth, ranging from its early occupation over 1,000 years ago to its current status as North America’s fourth largest city. Toronto is Canada’s largest municipality and is made up of the former cities of Toronto, North York, Scarborough, York and Etobicoke, and the former borough of East York. The city is home to a large immigrant population, and is a national and international hub for finance, communications and cultural life. Diverse cultures, climates and landscape make Canada a destination to suit any interest. Canada is a country of immigrants and has a policy of encouraging diversity. Thus, urban hubs feature a range of ethnic neighbourhoods, restaurants, and shops. In addition to rich and varied urban centres, Canada’s natural environment is one of the most beautiful in the world. From pristine coastlines to rugged mountains and sparkling lakes, Canada’s geography inspires awe coast to coast.

The western side of Toronto is sometimes only thought of as place where industry and residences bump up against each other, but it is also a place where there are wonderful parks and waterways and where numerous pockets of small businesses and local spirit create active and diverse communities. Combining suburban enclaves and malls with condominium developments and the dense business district surrounding the North York Civic Centre, the north-central tip of Toronto is at once both relaxed and exciting. The area is also home to York University and Black Creek Pioneer Village

The Conference aims to:

Discuss current knowledge, domestic and international experience related to early identification, prevention and management of food fraud incidents
Identify Gaps and discuss opportunities of collaboration to support action addressing food authenticity assurance and prevention of food fraud globally
Create momentum to mobilize resources and lead to early deliverables by partners and stakeholders in areas related to research, detection, risk management and food regulatory policy development dealing with food fraud

Sessions/ Tracks

Food fraud

Food fraud is the act of purposely altering, misrepresenting, mislabeling, substituting or tampering with any food product at any point along the farm–to–table food supply–chain. Fraud can occur in the raw material, in an ingredient, in the final product or in the food’s packaging

Biosensors and Food Safety

Biosensor is an analytical device that converts the biological reaction into electrical signals with the help of a transducer and generates real time Data. It is used detect analyte that interacts with the biological element associated with the transducer that gives out a measurable signal proportional to target analyte. The biological membranes can vary form microbes, cell organelles to nucleic acid. Transducer can be optical, electrochemical depending on the type of interaction with analyte.

Food safety requires fast effective real time methods to take the edge of adulteration, neurotoxins, pathogens, harmful chemicals, heavy metals etc. that affects humans, plants and animals. Biosensors in food safety can be a cost effective and time saving approach towards maintaining the international stands in food industries

Food safety Laws & Regulations

Food Safety Regulations. Modern day food safety regulations were developed on sound scientific principles to protect consumers from incidents of foodborne illness and death. With globalization, the supply chain must be carefully monitored to ensure imports meet food safety regulations and are free from tampering.

Food Safety Certifications

Facilities which prepare, handle or serve open hypothetically hazardous food should have an owner or employee who has been successfully completed an approved and accredited with food safety certification examination. Foodservice business which serves “high risk” populations will be the first part of the industry required to fulfill with the new guidelines. At least one individual from each foodservice establishment should be certified in food safety techniques. The original certificate is required to be maintained on site at the facility. It is the duty of the certified food supervisor to ensure that all employees have sufficient knowledge and are well trained in food safety as it recounts to their assigned duties which are framed by FDA (Food and drug administration)

PCR and Food Industry

The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique was invented by kary B. Mullis in 1985, which helped scientist in making millions of copies of DNA, Which later had a wide spread usage in the many disciplines of life sciences from diagnostics of genetic disorders to identification of HIV in Human cells. There is increase in demand for a real time technique in Food Industry for quality assurance of food, which can bypass microbial method as they consume more time. In this case PCR is playing a key role in detection of pathogens in food and minimizing the affect food borne illness. PCR based methods in Food Microbiology led to the development of faster, much sensitive and more specific protocols.

Food Safety & Quality Management Strategies and Technologies

Quality management implementation it is a management technique to assure, to control and to monitor the product quality in order to ensure that the end product was manufactured with high quality the development of food safety is mandatory while quality assurance is voluntary. It is not the same to implement food safety such as: GMP, SSOP, HACCP and/or others, that assures the consumption of food is safe, than to implement quality assurance

Supply Chain Vulnerability Risk Assessments

Potential supply chain risks are identified by a systematic investigation of all factors (sources) that might lead to risks The consequence of each identified risk and its corresponding likelihood are determined by analysis the risks are prioritized based on their consequence and likelihood For those risks that need to be addressed with action, mitigation strategies are developed in accordance to the objective of the supply chain

Food Fraud mitigation

The plan must be designed to address the risk factors identified in the food fraud vulnerability assessment. It will be different for every company depending on the types of risks identified, as well as the nature of the companies’ ingredients, products, and geographic presence. PwC can help you design and implement a food fraud risk mitigation plan, employing our extensive experience in risk assessment, internal controls and supplier management. Food fraud mitigation plan will address areas such as governance processes, company ethics, workplace culture, sourcing and supplier management, and controls over processing and distributing food to consumers.

Horizon scanning and testing

Horizon Scan monitors commodity safety and integrity issues worldwide, collecting data daily from more than 100 food safety agencies and other reliable sources, delivering timely alerts on emerging food safety issues. It can help you to meet all consumer and regulatory demands for transparency and accountability across the ingredient supply chain, by identifying potential food safety threats before they become a problem.

Safety of the food supply- From Farm to Market

The consumption of fresh cut produce continues to increase globally. Technological advancements have in turn aided in increased global production of fresh produce to meet the increasing demand. However, there is serious concern as to whether this increase in supply and demand is leading to safety issues, as showcased by the alarming number of outbreaks associated with fresh vegetables and fruits, in the US as well as globally. And also it is important for people to understand the activities contribute in the food industry for the safety of food and how they can decrease the risk of foodborne illness. From processes on the farm to practices in the kitchen

Food Safety Regulations & International Food Trade

International Food Trade signs that food has gone international. More and more food is moving across borders for a combination of social, economic and technological reasons. Transportation has improved greatly, and better ways, such as freezing, have been found to preserve foods. Many developing nations were ready to sell the foods they were producing to obtain funds to continue building up their countries

Blockchain in Food Industry

Blockchain technology is a way of storing and sharing information across a network of users in an open virtual space. Blockchain technology allows for users to look at all transactions simultaneously and in real-time.Blockchain makes a supply chain more transparent at an all-new level. It also empowers the entire chain to be more responsive to any food safety disasters.Blockchain also allows specific products to be traced at any given time, which would help to reduce food waste. For instance, contaminated products can be traced easily and quickly, while safe foods would remain on the shelves and not be sent to landfills.

Food Fraud: Detection, Prevention & Management

The process to ensure the security of food and drink from all forms of intentional malicious attack including ideologically motivated attack leading to contamination. Food Fraud is an important and evolving food industry focus. Even though the vast majority of these incidents do not have a health hazard in some ways they are more dangerous because the substances and actions are unknown and untraceable Food Fraud is the collective term encompassing the intentional substitution, addition, tampering or misrepresentation of food/feed, food/feed ingredients or food/feed packaging, labelling, product information or false or misleading statements made about a product for economic gain that could impact consumer health

Public health risks associated with food fraud

Food fraud, including the more defined subcategory of economically motivated adulteration, is a food risk that is gaining recognition and concern. Regardless of the cause of the food risk, adulteration of food is both an industry and a government responsibility. Food safety, food fraud, and food defense incidents can create adulteration of food with public health threats. Food fraud is an intentional act for economic gain, whereas a food safety incident is an unintentional act with unintentional harm, and a food defense incident is an intentional act with intentional harm.

Parag Khanna on “The Future is Asian”, Toronto, Ontario Canada

Join us for the Global Affairs Experts Speaker Series at Rotman for a discussion on “The Future is Asian” (Simon & Schuster, Feb. 5, 2019).

SPEAKER: Parag Khanna, Founder & Managing Partner, FutureMap; Global Strategy Advisor; Best-Selling Author of 6 Books

BOOK SYNOPSIS: In the 19th century, the world was Europeanized. In the 20th century, it was Americanized. Now, in the 21st century, the world is being Asianized. The “Asian Century” is even bigger than you think. Far greater than just China, the new Asian system taking shape is a multi-civilizational order spanning Saudi Arabia to Japan, Russia to Australia, Turkey to Indonesia—linking five billion people through trade, finance, infrastructure, and diplomatic networks that together represent 40 percent of global GDP. China has taken a lead in building the new Silk Roads across Asia, but it will not lead it alone. Rather, Asia is rapidly returning to the centuries-old patterns of commerce, conflict, and cultural exchange that thrived long before European colonialism and American dominance. Asians will determine their own future—and as they collectively assert their interests around the world, they will determine ours as well. There is no more important region of the world for us to better understand than Asia – and thus we cannot afford to keep getting Asia so wrong. Asia’s complexity has led to common misdiagnoses: Western thinking on Asia conflates the entire region with China, predicts imminent World War III around every corner, and regularly forecasts debt-driven collapse for the region’s major economies. But in reality, the region is experiencing a confident new wave of growth led by younger societies from India to the Philippines, nationalist leaders have put aside territorial disputes in favor of integration, and today’s infrastructure investments are the platform for the next generation of digital innovation. If the nineteenth century featured the Europeanization of the world, and the twentieth century its Americanization, then the twenty-first century is the time of Asianization. From investment portfolios and trade wars to Hollywood movies and university admissions, no aspect of life is immune from Asianization. With America’s tech sector dependent on Asian talent and politicians praising Asia’s glittering cities and efficient governments, Asia is permanently in our nation’s consciousness. We know this will be the Asian century. Now we finally have an accurate picture of what it will look like.

COST: $39.95 plus HST per person (includes 1 hardcover copy of “The Future is Asian” and 1 seat for the talk)

Unlisted yet related sub-points are additionally adequate, if they fit in one of the accompanying fundamental theme zones:

Theme: “Global innovation and research techniques in Computer Graphics, Animation, Gamedesign & VR”

Sessions of Computer Graphics & Animation 2019 Canada

Track 1: Computer Graphics

Computer graphics is branch of Computer Science and Technology…

It’s a graphical pattern of an image or objects which created by using specific software and hardware. Computer graphics is field where physical body, data and imagination will develop or created. Computer graphics helps to understanding of physical nature, geometry, displaying image, motion, animation of object and provide user design interface platform. Computer graphics used in motion picture or movies, video games, animation, advertising and graphic design. This track will provide to the programming software you’ll be using, basic tools of the trade, from algorithms to color perception and texture mapping, graphics hardware, social agents in computer graphics, GPU design and other interactive computer graphics techniques.

Track 2: Computer Animation

The art or process of making movies with drawings, computer graphics or photographs of static objects, including all techniques other than the continuous filming of live-action images. It is the creation of the “illusion of movement” using a series of still images. This track covers the following subtopics: Traditional animation, Stop motion animation, Character animation, Special effects animation, Physics-based Animation and Behavioural Animation.

Track 3: Animation Industry

Though most people think of animation as being used primarily for entertainment in movies, TV shows, and video games, it has many other uses. It’s commonly used in educational videos and advertisements both on TV and on the Internet, and it can also be used in the process of research and development to create simulations of how a machine or process would work. Scientists use digital animation as well to create visualizations of abstract concepts or objects that are too small or large to be seen easily, which is helpful both for research and for analysis.

The rapid advancement of technology has made computer animation available to the masses and the animation industry is one of the fastest growing industries. The demand for animated entertainment has expanded with the increase in broadcasting hours by cable and satellite TV along with the growing popularity of the Internet. The major markets include the United States, Canada, Japan, France, Britain and Germany. More broadly speaking, animation is increasingly used in video games, and movies are also increasingly reliant on animation and computer graphic special effects.

Track 4: Modeling

Modeling is the representation of an object or phenomena, which is used by simulation. Models may be mathematical, physical, or logical representations of a system, entity, phenomenon, or process. Models are, in turn, used by simulation to predict a future state. It is a discipline for developing a level of understanding of the interaction of the parts of a system, and of the system as a whole.

Track 5: Simulation

Simulations are abstractions of reality. It is defined as the process of creating a model of an existing or proposed system (e.g., a project, a business, a mine, a watershed, a forest, the organs in your body) in order to identify and understand those factors which control the system to predict the future behaviour of the system. Simulation is a powerful and important tool because it provides a way in which alternative designs, plans and policies can be evaluated without having to experiment on a real system, which may be prohibitively costly, time-consuming, or simply impractical to do.

The future of innovation is simulation. Whereas before, we would sit amongst ourselves, decide how the world might work and test our ideas in the market, now we can test them in a virtual environment built by real world data at much lower levels of cost and risk. Modeling and simulation is a leading way that companies are reducing their development time while maintaining or increasing the quality of their products. This approach helps engineers explore design alternatives quickly without the need for as much prototype hardware.

Track 6: GPU Technology

Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is a particular electronic circuit outlined and create to increase the effectively & effective production of images in a frame by frame intended for better output to a display device. GPUs are used in mobile phones, embedded systems, workstations, personal computers and game consoles or platforms. GPU technology accelerates the computing and is the usage of a GPU together with a Control Processing Unit (CPU) to quicken profound investigation, learning, and building applications. GPU Technology accelerators now power energy-efficient & effective data centers in universities, government labs, industries, and small-and-medium businesses across the globe. They play an eminent role in accelerating applications in platforms ranging from artificial intelligence to cars, drones, robots and its applications.

Track 7: Game Design and Development

Gaming is evolving from the traditional in-home console based platforms to digital titles being played on mobile devices and connected consoles. Mobile gaming in its various flavours is the fastest growth segment of digital gaming Game design is the art of applying design and aesthetics to create a game to facilitate interaction between players for playful, healthful, educational, or simulation purposes. Game design can be applied both to games and, increasingly, to other interactions, particularly virtual ones. Video games are a $30 billion industry in the U.S., especially as more people play games on their mobile phones, according to Reuters. Game designers are an important part of a comprehensive team of designers and developers that coordinate the complex task of creating a new video game.

Game development is the software development process by which a video game is produced. The game industry requires innovations, as publishers cannot profit from constant release of repetitive sequels and imitations.

Mobile, the fastest growing digital gaming segment, is projected to account for 34% of the global gaming market in 2017 compared to 20% in 2012, growing from $12.3 billion to $29.6 billion or at a 19% CAGR, according to IDG. The Quarterly Global Games Market Update, from Newzoo, pins the total estimated value of mobile games at $25 billion for the year, a huge leap of 42 per cent from the total value in 2013. For now, Apple remains the top dog in terms of mobile gaming income, edging out a predicted revenue total of $3 billion dollars for Google Play in 2014. Brands have entered the scene to capitalize on this diverse demographic, and present a set of terrifying new market players to smaller developers looking to build and cultivate their own intellectual property.

Track 8: Gamification and Social Game Mechanics

Gamification: The utilization of diversion mechanics and prizes to energize conduct change in a non-amusement setting. While this definition gives a satisfactory review of gamification, it doesn’t give much understanding into how it truly functions. One valuable method for comprehension gamification is to separate it into: Game Mechanics, Reputation Mechanics and Social Mechanics.

Social Game Mechanics are a notoriety enhancer. In isolation, notoriety is just a curiosity; you feel great when the framework names you as a shrewd individual yet you’re most likely not going to care all that profoundly. When the framework recognizes user as a brilliant individual and shares their data with a thousand other individuals, all of a sudden the notoriety is a great deal more noteworthy. Social mechanics are any elements that empower or empower perceivability amongst players and include: Activity streams, Leader sheets, Teams, Status identifications, Followers and warnings, sharing and prescribing, Social mechanics give the way to share notoriety and empower client to-client connection. The more obvious notoriety is the all the more rousing it gets to be.

Track 09: Artificial Intelligence in Computer Graphics

Its alternative main contribution of intelligent techniques in Computer Graphics is to allow invention of completely new methods.

Artificial Intelligence in Computer Graphics

Track 10: Computer Graphics Applications

Computer graphics may be used in the following areas:

Computer Aided Designing is mainly used for detailed engineering of 3D models and/or 2D drawings of physical components, but it is also used throughout the engineering process from conceptual design and layout of products, through strength and dynamic analysis of assemblies to definition of manufacturing methods of components. Education and Training: Computer generated models of physical, financial, and economic systems are often used as educational aids. It helps the trainees to understand the operation of the system like Simulators for practice sessions or training of ship captains, aircraft pilots, heavy equipment operators, and air traffic-control personnel. Entertainment: Motion pictures, music videos, and television shows. Sometimes the graphics scenes are displayed by themselves, and sometimes graphic objects are combined with the actors and live scenes Computational biology sometimes referred to as bioinformatics, is the science of using biological data to develop algorithms and relations among various biological systems. Computational physics is the study and implementation of numerical analysis to solve problems in physics for which a quantitative theory already exists. Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. Graphic design is the process of visual communication, and problem-solving through the use of type, space, image and color. Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends. Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites.

Track 11: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition

Computer vision (image understanding) is a discipline that studies how to reconstruct, interpret and understand a 3D scene from its 2D images in terms of the properties of the structures present in the scene. The ultimate goal of computer vision is to model, replicate, and more importantly exceed human vision using computer software and hardware at different levels. It needs knowledge in computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, physiology, biology, and cognitive science. Computer vision is the construction of explicit, meaningful descriptions of physical objects from their images. The output of computer vision is a description or an interpretation or some quantitative measurements of the structures in the 3D scene. Image processing and image recognition are among many techniques computer vision employs to achieve its goals.

After being a research technology for the past few decades, computer vision has become commercialized in the past few years and is being deployed in a wide range of application markets including security and surveillance, automotive, consumer, industrial, medical, and entertainment, to name a few. According to a new report from Tractica, the market for computer vision technologies will grow from $5.7 billion in 2014 to $33.3 billion by 2019, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 42%. The market intelligence firm forecasts that the consumer segment will experience the highest growth rate, followed by the robotics and machine vision segment. “New technologies like deep learning are also evolving that promise to increase accuracy and reliability of computer vision systems dramatically, but these technologies need more research before they can become mainstream.”

Pattern Recognition systems to certifiable issues, interdisciplinary research, exploratory or potentially hypothetical reviews yielding new bits of knowledge that propel Pattern Recognition strategies are particularly supported. Pattern Recognition, there might be a higher enthusiasm to formalize, clarify and envision the example, while machine adapting customarily concentrates on augmenting the acknowledgment rates. However, these areas have advanced significantly from their underlying foundations in computerized reasoning, designing and insights, and they’ve turned out to be progressively comparative by incorporating improvements and thoughts from each other.

Track 12: Virtual, Augmented and Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is a form of technology which creates computer generated worlds or immersive environments which people can explore and in many cases, interact with. It refers to a high-end user interface that involves real-time simulation and interactions through multiple sensorial channels. Virtual Reality is often used to describe a wide variety of applications, commonly associated with its immersive, highly visual, 3D environments. The development of CAD software, graphics hardware acceleration, head mounted displays; database gloves and miniaturization have helped popularize the concept. Born of technology, virtual reality at its core is an organic experience. Yes, it’s man meets machine, but what happens is strictly within the mind.

Augmented reality is a similar form of technology in which the lines are blurred between the real world and computer generated imagery, e.g. video. Sound, video or images are overlaid onto a real world environment in order to enhance the user experience. On the spectrum between virtual reality, which creates immersive, computer-generated environments, and the real world, augmented reality is closer to the real world. Augmented reality adds graphics, sounds, haptic feedback and smell to the natural world as it exists. Both video games and cell phones are driving the development of augmented reality. Augmented reality is changing the way we view the world – or at least the way its users see the world.

Global dedicated devices augmented reality market is expected to reach $659.98 million by 2018, whereas the immersive virtual reality market is expected to reach $407.51 million by 2018. The major driving forces of augmented reality technology and virtual reality are the advancement and in computer technology and internet connectivity. The major companies included which offer AR & VR technology in various applications are Total immersion (France), Qualcomm Inc. (USA), Metaio GmBH (Germany), Vuzix Corporation (USA), Layar B.V (The Netherlands), Wikitude GmBH (Austria) and so on.

Track 13: Imaging and Image Processing

Image processing is a method to convert an image into digital form and perform some operations on it, in order to get an enhanced image or to extract some useful information from it. It is a type of signal dispensation in which input is image, like video frame or photograph and output may be image or characteristics associated with that image.

Visual information is the most important type of information perceived, processed and interpreted by the human brain. One third of the cortical area of the human brain is dedicated to visual information processing. Digital image processing, as a computer-based technology, carries out automatic processing, manipulation and interpretation of such visual information, and it plays an increasingly important role in many aspects of our daily life, as well as in a wide variety of disciplines and fields in science and technology, with applications such as television, photography, robotics, remote sensing, medical diagnosis and industrial inspection.

Image processing applications already range from industrial uses and security systems to transportation and medical technology. Even so, industry experts agree that only about 20% of all possible applications have been addressed so far. According to estimates provided by a number of manufacturers, the worldwide market volume for machine vision systems presently amounts to about 6.5 billion euros, with annual growth rates extending into the double-digit range.

Track 14: Rendering

Rendering refers to the process of building output files from computer animations. When an animation renders, the animation program takes the various components, variables, and actions in an animated scene and builds the final viewable result. A render can be an individual image or a series of images saved individually or sequenced into video format. Rendering research and development has been largely motivated by finding ways to simulate these efficiently. Some relate directly to particular algorithms and techniques, while others are produced together: shading, texture mapping, shadows, reflections, transparency, photorealistic rendering, non-photorealistic rendering, etc.

The market is moving toward the mature phase in many developed countries. Therefore, 3D rendering service providers have begun to focus on alternative revenue generation. For instance, they are providing value-added services and packaged services. Currently, many 3D rendering service providers are offering 3D rendering as a part of their 3D modeling services. The analysts concluded that the Global 3D Rendering and Virtualization Software market grew at a CAGR of 21.4 % over the period 2011–2015.

Track 15: Visualization & 3D Printing

Visualization is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. Visualization today has ever-expanding applications in science, education, engineering (e.g., product visualization), interactive multimedia, medicine. Scientific visualization is the use of interactive, sensory representations, typically visual, of abstract data to reinforce cognition, hypothesis building, and reasoning. Data visualization is a related subcategory of visualization dealing with statistical graphics and geographic or spatial data (as in thematic cartography) that is abstracted in schematic form. Educational visualization is using a simulation not usually normally created on a computer to create an image of something so it can be taught about. Information visualization concentrates on the use of computer-supported tools to explore large amount of abstract data. The use of visual representations to transfer knowledge between at least two person aims to improve the transfer of knowledge by using computer and non-computer-based visualization methods complementarily is called knowledge Visualization. Product visualization involves visualization software technology for the viewing and manipulation of 3D models, technical drawing and other related documentation of manufactured components and large assemblies of products. Visual communication is the communication of ideas through the visual display of information.

3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) is any of various processes used to synthesize a three-dimensional object. In 3D printing, additive processes are used, in which successive layers of material are laid down under computer control These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry, and are produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source. The technology is used in the fields of jewellery, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many others.

Track 16: Human-Computer Interaction

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use and with the study of major phenomena surrounding them. HCI has expanded rapidly and steadily for three decades, attracting professionals from many other disciplines and incorporating diverse concepts and approaches. To a considerable extent, HCI now aggregates a collection of semi-autonomous fields of research and practice in human-centred informatics. A user interface, such as a GUI, is how a human interacts with a computer, and HCI goes beyond designing screens and menus that are easier to use and studies the reasoning behind building specific functionality into computers and the long-term effects that systems will have on humans.

Brain-computer interface (BCI) also known as direct neural interface (DNI), or brain–machine interface (BMI), is an immediate correspondence pathway between an upgraded or wired cerebrum and an outside gadget. BCIs are frequently coordinated at looking into, mapping, helping, expanding, or repairing human intellectual or tactile engine capacities.

Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI) as of late an expanding collection of work, with an attention on: a) considering the communication amongst creatures and innovation in naturalistic settings, around particular creature exercises or interspecies relations; b) creating client focused innovation that can enhance creatures’ welfare and bolster creatures in their exercises; c) educating client focused ways to deal with the outline of innovation planned for creatures, got from both association plan and creature science.

Track 17: 3D Web Technology

Web3D was at first the thought to completely show and explore Web destinations utilizing 3D. By expansion, the term now alludes to all intuitive 3D content which are inserted into pages html, and that we can see through a web program. Present day Web3D pages are usually controlled by WebGL. 3D web substance can be costly regarding computational power. Previously, 3D content in a program would be rendered by the CPU and couldn’t profit by your PC’s devoted design handling unit (GPU). Besides, if the substance was stacked into a site instead of created on the client’s CPU, surfaces, networks, movement information, and sound would back off load times, making the experience not exactly ideal.

Advances are Flash Stage3d, Unity3d and Unreal Engine and so forth. 3D illustrations on the web have made some amazing progress. There are many contending advances out there, all battling to be the lord of the 3D web. It can turn out to be exceptionally hard to pick one from the changing instruments and document designs for your venture. Despite everything it stays to be seen which one, assuming any, get to be institutionalized.
