Dr. Bobby Siu
Canada has been going through some demographic shifts in the past few decades. The presentation examines some population and consumption statistics and notes the value of developing marketing strategies for multicultural groups.
He has a Ph.D. in sociology from Carleton University and has held academic appointments at McMaster University, Queen's University, Ryerson Polytechnic University, University of Western Ontario and York University. In addition, he has held various senior management posts with the Government of Ontario where he assumed responsibility for a wide range of projects involving multicultural communities.
Through his business activities and sitting on the boards of
various organizations, Dr. Siu has extensive linkages to the ethnocultural
communities. His views on diversity and marketing have been quoted
in Canadian Business and Strategy. He has extensive publications
on intercultural and diversity including Canadian Ethnic Studies,
Canadian HR Reporter, Marketing Magazine, Strategy, and the award-winning
Toronto Region Business and Market Guide.
Prof. JianHong Wu
Projective clustering seems to be the only realistic approach in pattern recognition and feature detection of data sets in high dimensional spaces, as points in such data sets are usually sparsely distributed in the full space. The essential difficulty arises as the set of dimensions and the set of data points have to be found SIMULTANEOUSLY so that the points are corollated with respect to the set of dimensions. We report some of our recent progress in the design and implementation of a neural network architecture, called Projective Adaptive Resonance Theory, for projective clustering. The algorithm and numerical simulations will be described, together with some detailed comparisons with existing algorithms for clustring of large data sets in high dimensional spaces.
