In the morning of March 23, 2016, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Van Hiep-President and all of the staffs of the Faculty of Information Technology welcomed and worked with Prof. Ho Tu Bao- Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, about the exchange of cooperation in information technology training.


At the beginning of meeting, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Van Hiep said, during this time, the Thu Dau Mot University has paid attention to the cooperation with the units, advanced educational organizations inside and outside the country; besides, the school has gathered the experiences of top professors of each branch in order to improve the quality of training. In the field of Information Technology, the school has identified it as the key branch, in the coming time, the school leaders eager to get the helps, supports of Prof. Ho Tu Bao in the training and scientific research on this field.


Speaking at the meeting, Prof. Ho Tu Bao expressed his pleasure when he could visit and cooperate with the Thu Dau Mot University. To respond the school leaders’ suggestions, the Professor will facilitate and help school lecturers to learn as research students based on the 911 Project at the Institute of science and technology of Japan; at the same time, he agrees to be the adviser for the training programs of the Faculty of Information Technology. In addition, he will collaborates to develop the direction of the scientific researches about the science of big data, smart cities...


In the framework of the meeting, Prof. Ho Tu Bao also spent time exchanging, sharing information with the staffs, lecturers and students of the Faculty of Information Technology about the content: scientific computing, scientific data analysis. The Professor said, the traditional "Knowledge driven" approach would test the scientific hypotheses, which created knowledge. However, the science with big data would use the "data driven" approach to find the information and knowledge from the data, used mathematical machines and calculations to make researches in other sciences, and solve the complex problems. Computer science merges three components: (1), the algorithms and the software of modeling and simulation to solve the problems of science, technology and society. (2), the computer science and information to develop optimally the advanced systems of hardware, software, networking and data management to deal with the problems that should be calculated. (3), the computing infrastructure needed for solving engineering and scientific calculations as well as for the development of computer science and information. For the field of big data analysis science (Big-Data), The Professor shared about the content, the essential conception of the Big-Data, the main techniques in the Big-Data and technological challenges for researching and resolving.


At the end of the meeting, Prof. Ho Tu Bao stressed that the scientific development of the 21st century would base on the scientific computing, scientific data analysis at all. There are no multipurpose tools or methods in the science of big data, only the model selection is the core. Besides, every problem needs private answer, among of them, the statistics, machine learning and data mining are the keys of the data analysis.


Prof. Ho Tu Bao, was born in 1952, in Hanoi. The Professor is the Mathematics alumnus of Hanoi Pedagogical University. He enlisted on September 6 in 1971; one of the reconnaissance soldiers of 325 Division (C20, F325), fought at the Quang Tri battle from 1972 to 1974, and was demobilized in September of 1974. In 1978, he graduated from the branch of mathematics, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Polytechnic University of Hanoi. In 1987, he defended successful his Informatics PhD thesis at 6th Paris University and the Informatics Science PhD thesis at 9th Paris University in 1998. In 1991, he was nominated to be the Associate Professor at the Institute of information technology, Institute of science and technology of Vietnam. In 1998, the Japan Advanced Institute of Science appointed him as the Professor and currently, he works there.
