Prof. Dr Abdel-Badeh M. Salem is a professor emeritus of Computer Science since September 2007 till now. He was a former Vice Dean of the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences at Ain Shams University, Cairo-Egypt (1996-2007). He was a full professor Dr.of Computer Science at Faculty of Science, Ain Shams University from 1989 to 1996. He was a Director of the Scientific Computing Center at Ain Shams University (1984-1990).In 1996 he was moved to the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences at the same university. His research includes Knowledge engineering and computing, expert systems, intelligent medical and health informatics, and intelligent e-learning technologies. He has published around 600 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings in these areas, 110 of them are in Scopus. He has been involved in more than 600 conferences and workshops as a Keynote speaker, member of Int. Program Committees, organizer and Session Chair. He is the author and co-author of 25 Books in English and Arabic Languages.
He was one of the founders of the following events, First Egyptian Workshop on Expert Systems 1987, Int. Cairo Conference on Artificial Intelligence Applications in 1992 and Int. Conf. on Intelligent Computing and Information Systems 2002, and one of the main sustainers of annual Int. Romanian Internet Learning Workshop Project (RILW), 1997. In addition, he was Secretary of Egyptian Computer Society (1984-1990), Member of National Committee in Informatics – Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (1992-200), Member of Egyptian Committee in the Inter-Governmental Informatics Program, IIP-UNISCO, Paris (1988-1990) and Coordinator of the Annual International Conference for Statistics, Scientific Computing, and Social and Demographic Research (1983-1990).

Artificial Intelligence : Paradigms, Applications and Challenges
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is devoted to create intelligent software and hardware that imitates the human mind. The main goal of AI as a science and technology is to make computers smarter by creating intelligent algorithms that will allow a computer to mimic some of the functions of the human brain in selected applications. The main paradigms of AI include; general problem solving, knowledge engineering and management, expert systems, natural language processing, computer vision, computational intelligence,machine learning and robotics. And AI can support many tasks and domians ,e.g. law, education ,life sciences, healthcare , economy ,bussines ,environment ,energy and military applications.. All of these applications employ knowledge base and inferencing techniques to solve problems or help make decisions in specific domains.
On the other side, developing of intelligent software for these applications is very difficul and complex t from the technological perspective and a challenging task. In this talk we focus our discussion around the most efficient AI paradigms used in developing such systems. In addition, the talk presents some applications of the developed systems by the author and his colleagues at AIKER-Labs in the domains of healthcare, medicine,economy, and education.
