Speech Title: Vector
Based Emotion Function Expression and Optimal Solution By
Abstract: This paper suggests the novel emotion express based on vector express as one of the artificial intelligence. Emotion function such as face emotion, voice emotion, and gesture emotion can be expressed in several ways. To express fully emotion like human being, we have to select these three emotion function at least and express happiness, sadness, surprise, anger, disgust or so effectively. In this case, there are three types such as plane space, 2D space, and 3D space. This paper deals with the novel 3D emotion expression method by vector. This paper uses spherical coordinate with unit vectors that is depicted in Fig.1. The surfaces depicted in this Figure are specified by the intersection of the three unit vectors ar, aθ, and aφ are perpendicular to the sphere, the cone, and the plane. The emotional function expression is illustrated by the variables and unit vectors in spherical coordinates point (r, θ, φ) shown in the Fig. 1.

Cognitive Robotics: Recent Developments and Futuristic Trends
Abstract: The quest for building human-like intelligence has gained enormous momentum in recent decades. Since the seminal works on Artificial Intelligence (AI), the desire of realizing the quest has become stronger. With the rapid developments in Science, Engineering and Technology, machines that mimic human intelligence have become a reality and sometimes indispensable parts in our daily life, such as Apple Siri and Google Voice. Cognition is a group of mental processes that include attention, memory, producing and understanding language, solving problems and making decisions and making decisions. Cognitive robotics is concerned with endowing robots with intelligent behavior by providing a processing architecture that will allow it to learn and reason about how to behave in response to complex goals in a complex world. In this talk, recent developments of cognitive robotics with applications in the healthcare industry, domestic services, marine vehicles etc will be reviewed. The futuristic trends and challenges will also be discussed.

Research and Standard Activities of Radio Access Technologies for the 5G Mobile Communication System
Abstract: 5G mobile communication that will be shown in 2020 is very hot issue and seriously competitive to standardization and development as the next generation of current 4G LTE system. So, researches for new 5G waveforms have been carried in order to satisfy KPI for 5G mobile communication system. Like the UFMC, FBMC, f-OFDM, waveform design with very high spectrum efficiency is the most important for the 5G Mobile communication system. Spectrum efficiency refers to the information rate that can be transmitted over a given bandwidth in a specific communication system. It is a measure of how efficiently a limited frequency spectrum is utilized. Some new spectrum efficient waveform designs are discussed towards narrower mainlobe and lower sidelobe in spectrum. It has been recognized that judicious use of properly designed waveforms is fundamental to fully utilizing the capacity of the electromagnetic spectrum. In the application to spectrum efficient wireless communication system, information signals are exchanged over a common wireless channel.
In this talk, at first some recent research and development trend and activities about the 5G mobile communication system will be discussed. Next, some strong candidates for 5G waveforms and multiple access technology will be shown and investigated. Also, several enabling technologies for the 5G mobile system will be given for the more practical approach ways. Finally, I like to show some recent research results of 5G waveform design and analysis.
