Invited Speakers

Prof. Dr. Aydın AKAN

Aydın AKAN graduated from Uludağ University, Department of Electrical Engineering, in 1984 and Istanbul Technical University, Electronics and Communication Program in 1991. In his master’s thesis, he worked on a real-time adaptive noise cancellation system for biological signals. In 1988, he moved to Istanbul University and started his PhD studies in signal processing at the University of Pittsburgh, USA, in March 1992. His Ph.D. thesis was on “Time-Frequency Analysis with Gabor Expansions” and he completed his Ph.D. studies in April 1996. In December 1996, he was appointed assistant professor at the Department of Electronics, Department of Electronic Engineering, I.U.. In November 2000, he was promoted to Associate Professor at Signal Processing field on the Department of Telecommunications, Department of Signal Processing. On May 2, 2001, he was promoted to associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and on October 31, 2006, he was appointed as professor.

On March 20, 2017, he was appointed professor at Izmir Katip Çelebi University, Department of Biomedical Engineering. He continued his teaching and research activities in this department as the head of the department and director of Biomedical Testing, Calibration Application and Research Centre until January 31, 2020. He is currently working as a professor at Izmir University of Economics, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Prof. Dr. Aydın Akan continues his academic studies on time-frequency analysis for non-stationary signals and application of time-frequency analysis methods to problems in communication and biomedical engineering.

Prof. Dr. Aydın AKAN has worked as an executive and researcher in many projects supported by TÜBİTAK and Scientific Research Projects. His books, articles, book chapters and papers on his research have been published in domestic and foreing. He is a member of the review board of many scientific journals and in the advisory, management, organizational, technical program and review boards of scientific conferences.

Dr. Aydın AKAN is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) Signal Processing (SP) and Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMB) branches, a member of the European Signal Processing Association (EURASIP), Biomedical Signal and Image Analysis Technical Area Committee. He is a member of the Editorial Board of Digital Signal Processing, Elsevier.

Invited Speakers

Doç Dr. Savaş Yıldırım

I graduated from Istanbul Technical University Computer Engineering Department and I have a Ph.D. in NLP from Trakya University. I am currently working as an Associate Professor at Istanbul Bilgi University and as a Visiting Lecturer at Toronto Metropolitan University.
I am an active researcher and lecturer with more than +20 years of experience in Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Natural Language Processing. I am Co-Author of the NLP Book “Mastering Transformers” published by Packt Publishing.
I have significant contributions to the NLP Community by developing many open-source software and resources. I also provide comprehensive consultancy to AI companies on their R&D projects.I have consulted many industrial R&D-funded projects for +15 years, some are as follows:

  • * Development of an Intelligent Information Extraction System with Multilingual Natural Language Models
  • * NLP models for early detection of opioid-related death outbreaks. Statistics Canada and Ryerson University Collaborative Project
  • * Intelligent Process Management Software Project for Human Resources Recruitment Processes,
  • * Toronto Stock Exchange Project, Ryerson University
  • * Profiling and Analysis Platform with Deep Learning, TUBITAK R&D Funding Program.
  • * Conflict Detection in Software Requirement, IBM & Toronto Metropolitan University

Research Interest:
Natural Language Processing, Explainable AI (XAI), Few-Shot Learning, Zero-shot Learning, Natural Language Understanding, Language Generation, Semantic Search, Deep Learning, Free and Open Source Software, Big Data Analytics, Business Intelligence.

Currently, I mostly focus on deep learning and natural language processing problems where I employ Feed Forward Neural Networks, RNN, LSTM, CNN, Transformers, BERT, T5, T0, and so on. And I am enjoying HuggingFace models, Spacy, Tensorflow, Pytorch, Keras, SBERT etc.. Recently I have mostly focused on Few- shot learning and Prompt-based Natural Language models.
