Title: Machine-Learning-based Optical Performance Monitoring in Communications Channels
Abstract: In recent years, machine learning has come to the forefront as a promising technology to aid in multiparameter performance monitoring for optical communications channels. In this talk, we will introduce CNN-based techniques to effectively monitor multiple system performance parameters of optical channels using eye diagram measurements. Experimental results demonstrate this method achieves a prediction accuracy >98% when tasked with identifying the modulation format (QPSK, 8-QAM, or 16-QAM), as well as the optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR), roll-off factor (ROF), and timing skew for 32 GBd coherent channels. For PAM-based intensity-modulation direct detection (IMDD) channel eye-diagram-based CNN method maintain >97% identification accuracy for 432 classes under different combinations of probabilistic shaping (PS), ROF, baud rate, OSNR, and chromatic dispersion (CD) by each modulation format. Furthermore, we undertake on an extensive comparison of ResNet-18, MobileNetV3 and EfficientNetV2. Our designed VGG-based model of reduced layers, alongside the lightweight MobileNetV3, demonstrates enhanced cost-effectiveness while maintaining high accuracy.

Title: Precise Modeling of Sea Clutter and Target Detection
Abstract: Most of the Earth's surface is covered by the ocean, and events that occur below, above, and above the ocean greatly affect our lives. Remote sensing and surveillance at sea are very important. Since its invention in the 1930s, radar has played a crucial role in remote sensing and surveillance. This report introduces the generation mechanism of sea clutter, the amplitude statistical model of sea clutter, the reflection coefficient of sea clutter, and the empirical model from the perspective of signal processing. Finally, it introduces various optimal detectors designed based on different sea clutter statistical models in remote sensing detection, and prospects the development of sea clutter detection and remote sensing detection technology.

Title: Medical Image Segmentation under Constrained Conditions
Abstract: Medical image segmentation is a key technology in the field of intelligent image analysis. At present, a large number of research results on medical image segmentation have been reported and used for smart medicine. However, the current mainstream medical image segmentation methods still face the following challenges. Firstly, accurate segmentation of medical images is difficult due to high noise and low contrast. Secondly, mainstream medical image segmentation models have a large number of parameters and slow inference speed, making it difficult to deploy on low resource devices. Finally, pixel-level annotation of medical images is very expensive and requires professional knowledge. To address these problems, our team proposes a high-precision hybrid CNN-Transformer network, an ultralight network, and a semi supervised network for medical image segmentations. Some of the research results have been applied to medical companies and large hospitals, providing technical support for the rapid development of smart healthcare in China.

Title: Sustainability at the Crossroads: Analyzing the Crucial Interplay of Sustainable Growth, Energy Consumption, and Environmental Challenges in the Belt and Road Initiative Economies – An Innovative Empirical Study
Abstract: The concept of modernization and globalization urges a tendency of bilateral cooperation and strategical relationships among the nations. Recently, China has taken the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in 2013 to articulate the slogan of "Going global strategy.” The primary objective of the current study is to explore the nexus between energy consumption, economic growth, population growth, financial development and carbon emission (CO2) for the panel of 65 BRI countries over the period of 1981 to 2016. Empirical results show that energy consumption, high-tech industry, and economic growth deteriorate environmental quality but financial development and renewable energy consumption have a favorable effect for the environment. The energy consumption is positively and significantly affecting the environmental quality for all regions except the South Asian region. The overall outcomes postulate a weak association of economic indicators with carbon emissions in the long run except for Europe, MENA, and Southeast Asian regions. This present study serves as a blueprint to experts, policymakers and BRI listed government officials suggesting that they should advise the masses and industries to shift towards renewable energy sources. Furthermore, the need to install the water treatment plants near to industrial zones is pertinent. Moreover, the environment monitoring organizations and portfolio investors should arrange awareness campaigns for green investments and renewable energy dependency to accomplish visionary BRI feat.
