BDIOT2023 INVITED SPEAKERS


Prof. Jinan Fiaidhi
Lakehead University, Canada

Biosketch: Dr. Jinan Fiaidhi is a full Professor of Computer Science at Lakehead University, Ontario, Canada since late 2001. She was the grad coordinator for the Lakehead University Computer Science MSc program for the period (2009-2018) and the and the Graduate Coordinator of the PhD program in Biotechnology (2018-2022). She is also an Adjunct Research Professor with the University of Western Ontario. She received her graduate degrees in Computer Science from Essex University (PgD 1983) and Brunel University (PhD, 1986). During the period (1986-2001), Dr. Fiaidhi served at many academic positions (e.g. University of Technology (Asso. Prof and Chairperson), Philadelphia University (Asso. Prof), Applied Science University (Professor), Sultan Qaboos University (Asso. Prof.). Dr. Fiaidhi research is focused on Thick Data Analytics and Collaborative Learning utilizing the emerging technologies (e.g. Conversational AI, Deep Learning, Cloud Computing, Calm Computing, Mobile Learning, Learning Analytics, Social Networking, Croudsourcing, OpenData, Extreme Automation and Semantic Web). Dr. Fiaidhi current research is supported by the major research granting associations in Canada (e.g. NSERC, MITACS). Dr. Fiaidhi is a Professional Software Engineer of Ontario (PEng), Senior Member of IEEE, member of the British Computer Society (MBCS) and member of the Canadian Information Society (CIPS) holding the designate of ISP. Dr.Fiaidhi is the chair of of the IEEE Special Interest Research Group on Big and Thick Data for eHealth with IEEE ComSoc eHealth TC. Dr. Fiaidhi is the founder and the Emeriti Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Extreme Automation and Connectivity in Healthcare (IJEACH).


Prof. Sabah Mohammaned
Lakehead University, Canada

Biosketch: Dr. Mohammed is full Professor at the department of Computer Science at Lakehead University (Ontario Canada) since 2002. He is also a Professional Engineer of Ontario (PEng), Information Processing Professional with CIPS and Senior Member of IEEE. Dr. Sabah Mohammed research interest is in intelligent systems that have to operate in large, nondeterministic, cooperative, highly connected, survivable, adaptive or partially known domains. His continuous research is inspired by his PhD work back in 1981 from Brunel University (UK) on the employment of the Brain Activity Structures for decision making (planning and learning) that enable processes (e.g. agents, mobile objects) and collaborative processes to act intelligently in their environments to timely achieve the required goals. Having trained in medicine with a computer science PhD in Artificial Intelligence (AI), his research is focused on Smart, Translational and Connected Health. Prior to his work at Lakehead University, Dr. Mohammed was the chair of three computer science departments at HCT, Philadelphia and Applied Science University. He is the founder and Editor-In-Chief of two journals (Emerging Technology of Web Intelligence (JETWI)-2008-2012 and the International Journal of Extreme Automation and Connectivity in Healthcare (IJEACH)-2018-2021). Currently he is the chair of the special interest research group on Smart and Connected Health with the IEEE ComSoc eHealth TC. Dr. Mohammed active research is on connected healthcare through translational medicine is funded by both NSERC and MITACS.
