  • Images, videos and time-series analysis
  • Machine learning and representation learning
  • Statistical and structural pattern recognition
  • Data visualization and dimensionality reduction
  • Robotics
  • Intelligent systems in health and medicine
  • Cyber computing and security
  • Bio-informatics
