Peking University Health Science Center

Prof. Han received his Doctor Degree of Radiology at Peking University in 1998, and now works as a chief radiologist at the Radiology Department Peking University Third Hospital. He is also the director of both the office of Scientific Research and the office of Discipline Construction, Peking University Health Science Center. Prof. Han established a key laboratory of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Equipment and Technique in PKU(Beijing key lab.) of and served as the director since 2010. He is leading a team working on brain Extracellular Space (ECS), which provides an immediate living environment for neural cells and accounts for approximately 20% of the total volume of a living brain. So far, he has developed two in vivo measuring methods which can provide biophysical parameters of ECS and image the interstitial fluid (ISF) drainage in the whole brain. By using the self-developed measuring system, Dr. Han and his team have made a series of discoveries, i.e. brain ISF drains in a compartmentalized ECS system and the diffusion in different ECS divisions are disparate. After verifying the nature of the barrier between divisions, Dr. Han has proposed the hypothesis of “compartmentalized local homeostasis”, namely, the brain is protected not only by Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) which avoids exogenous damage through the vascular system, but also by an internal drainage barrier to avoid potentially harmful interference from other divisions. Based on these new findings, a new drug delivery method via ECS has been established, by which the drug arrives directly to the space around neural cells, and overwhelms the impendence from BBB, thus solving the obstacles of low efficiency in traditional drug administration. At present, the new method and findings have been applied in many frontier fields of neuroscience, such as new drug development, aging, aerospace medicine, and artificial neural network modeling. Prof. Han now authored 5 monographs, published more than 200 research articles and was granted 15 patents. With the above achievements, Prof. Han received the China Youth Sci-Tech Awards in 2011, the First Prize of Huaxia Medical Science and Technology Awards in 2015, and won the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars of China in 2016. He was selected to the capital talent-training program for science and technology leaders of the year 2018.

Associate professor and Program Coordinator of Biomedical Sciences
Institute of Chinese Medical Sciences, University of Macau

Dr. Su obtained his medical degree (MD) at Zhejiang University in 1994, MPhil degree at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2002, and PhD degree at the University of Hong Kong in 2008. Now he is working at University of Macau as an associate professor.

Dr. Su’s research mainly focuses on study of cerebrovascular diseases, especially cerebral small vessel disease. His group at Institute of Chinese Medical Sciences, University of Macau, are now working on finding natural products and non-invasive approaches to promote the glymphatic functions for the treatment of brain disorders. They have previously reported that omega-3 PUFAs promote extracellular Aβ clearance from the brain and resist Aβ injury through activating the glymphatic function, leading to cognitive improvement. They have also demonstrated that application of tPA via the glymphatic system significantly ameliorates the behavioral deficits and histological injury after subarachnoid hemorrhage. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed research articles in well-reputed journals in the discipline such as Nature Medicine, Nature Methods, Molecular Psychiatry, Nanoscale, FASEB J, Cell Death & Disease, and Molecular Neurobiology.

Yukio Ohsawa(大澤幸生)
Professor, School of Engineering,
The University of Tokyo
Introduction: Yukio Ohsawa is a professor of Systems Innovation in the School of Engineering. He received BE, ME, and PhD in from the School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo (1995). Then worked for the School of Engineering Science in Osaka University (research associate,1995-1999), Graduate School of Business Sciences in University of Tsukuba (associate professor, 1999-2005), and moved back to The Univ. of Tokyo. He started researches from non-linear optics, and, via artificial intelligence, created a new domain chance discovery meaning to discover events of significant impact on decision making, since year 2000.
About chance discovery he gave keynote talks in conferences such as International Symposium on Knowledge and Systems Sciences, Int’l Conf. on Rough Sets and Fuzzy Sets, Joint Conf. on Information Sciences, Knowledge-Based Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems, etc. Chance discovery came to be embodied as innovators’ marketplace, a methodology for innovation borrowing principles of the dynamics of markets. Then he, when biking from his job in a business school, invented the basic idea of Data Jackets as a new tool for enhancing chance discoveries via combining data from various data owners. Since then, he is introducing the method presented in this book to sciences, educations, and businesses. His original concepts and technologies have been published as books and monographs from global publishers such as Springer Verlag, Taylor & Francis, etc. Two most important books among them are, “Chance Discovery” (2003) Springer, foreword given by Eric von Hippel), “Innovators” Marketplace: Using Games to Activate and Train Innovators” (2012) Springer, foreword given by Larry Leifer). He edited special issues as guest editors for journals, mainly relevant to chance discovery, such as Intelligent Decision Technologies (2016), Information Sciences (2009), New Generation Computing (2003), Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management (2002), etc. As the program chair of Yukio Ohsawa, PhD, Professor Department of Systems Innovation School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo 113-8656 Tokyo, Japan.
Abstract: Here the speaker introduces Data Jackets as metadata, representing datasets reflecting peoples' potential interests. By visualizing the potential connectivities between DJs, participants in
the market of data think/talk about why/how they should/can combine the corresponding datasets. The owners of data may hesitate to open their data to the public, but they can present the DJs in the data marketplace. In this market, the participants communicate to create ideas to combine/use data and find future collaborators --- the marketplace can become a platform for innovations mediated by data. Also here an example is shown where indirectly useful data could be searched, which enabled an analogical invention of a method for data-based detection of explanatory precursors of earthquakes.
