Report about MDA 2021 in New York, USA

Report of MDA AI&PR 2021

The 16th International Conference on Mass Data Analysis of Images and Signals in Artificial Intelligence and Pattern Recognition MDA-AI&PR with Applications in Medicine, r/g/b Biotechnology, Food Industries and Dietetics, Biometry, Agriculture, Drug Discovery, and System Biology was held in New York, USA, July 12 – 14, 2021. As the yearly conference MDA-AI&PR is part of the World Congress “The Frontiers in Intelligent Data and Signal Analysis”, New York, USA, July 11-22, one may say that this year new frontiers in knowledge have been touched. The above mentioned statement is justified by the innovative topics presented, the academic level of tutorials, and by the rigorous and professional review process which trialled the submitted papers and retained a limited number of high scientific quality ones. The opening session was addressed by the conference chair, Professor Dr. Petra Perner. In her introductory address, Professor Petra Perner gave a brief overview of the current knowledge on the causal links between mass data analysis and the development of new knowledge in the actual context of effervescent technical, environmental, social and economic dynamics.

All the papers presented in the conference will be indexed in the SCOPUS data base:

The conference chair, Professor Dr. Petra Perner, presented the following tutorials: Standardization in Immunofluorescence, on July 12th, and Intelligent Image Interpretation and Computer Vision in Medicine, Biotechnology, Chemistry & Food Industry, on July 13th.

As Professor Dr. Petra Perner addressed the farewell message, the main remark was that constructive talks between conference participants, as well as the collaboration and engagement for new developments in the generous topics of the conference characterized the too short days of MDA 2021.

Tutorial Case-based Reasoning REVIEW

The CBR tutorial was an eye opener enriching experience about how to approach incremental data scenarios using case based reasoning. Prof. Dr. Petra Perner is an expert in the matter and gets to transmit the message in a clear and precise way. She was prompt to respond all the questions and arise interesting discussions around them. Looking forward to keep learning about the subject.
