AGI'18: Eleventh Annual Conference on Artificial General Intelligence

########################################################

 

When: August 22-24, 2018

Where: Prague, Czech Republic

Event URL:  <http://agi-conference.org/2018/> http://agi-conference.org/2018/ 

 

The Eleventh Annual Conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI−18) will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, on August 22-24, 2018. The AGI conference series is the premier international event aimed at advancing the state of knowledge regarding the original goal of the AI field — the creation of thinking machines with general intelligence at the human level and possibly beyond. Information on the previous AGI conferences may be found at  <http://agi-conf.org/> http://agi-conf.org.

 

As in prior AGI conferences, we welcome contributed papers on all aspects of AGI R&D, with the key proviso that each paper should somehow contribute specifically to the development of Artificial General Intelligence. The EasyChair submission page will open soon.

 

Two types of papers will be accepted:

Regular papers, with a length limit of 10 pages, presenting new research results or rigorously describing new research ideas.

Short technical communications, with a limit of 4 pages, summarizing results and ideas of interest to the AGI audience, including reports about recent publications, position papers, and preliminary results.

 

The submission deadline is April 25, 2017. The EasyChair submission page will be opened a couple weeks prior: please keep track of it on the  <http://agi-conference.org/2018/> event website.

 

Appropriate topics for contributed papers include, but are not restricted to: - Agent Architectures - Autonomy - Benchmarks and Evaluation - Cognitive Modeling - Collaborative Intelligence - Creativity - Distributed AI - Formal Models of General Intelligence - Implications of AGI for Society, Economy and Ecology - Integration of Different Capabilities - Knowledge Representation for General Intelligence - Languages, Specification Approaches and Toolkits - Learning, and Learning Theory - Motivation, Emotion and Affect - Multi-Agent Interaction - Natural Language Understanding - Neural-Symbolic Processing - Perception and Perceptual Modeling - Philosophy of AGI - Reasoning, Inference and Planning - Reinforcement Learning - Robotic and Virtual Embodiment - Simulation and Emergent Behavior - Solomonoff Induction.

NeSy'18: Thirteenth International Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning

########################################################

 

When: August 23 & 24, 2018

Where: Prague, Czech Republic
Event URL:  <http://www.neural-symbolic.org/> http://www.neural-symbolic.org/


The International Workshop series on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning (NeSy) will come to Prague in August 2018 as part of the Multi-conference on Human-level AI (HLAI 2018).

​

Having started in Edinburgh at IJCAI 2005, NeSy is the premier event worldwide for the study and integration of neural computation and symbolic AI. Deep networks now offer the state-of-the-art for a large number of perceptual tasks such as image and speech recognition, and for complex games, having achieved impressive super-human levels of proficiency at the games of Go and Chess recently.  

It is generally accepted though that AI requires a bridge from perception to cognition, including an ability to address a number of high-level cognitive tasks, typically associated with symbolic systems, such as reasoning, planning, abstraction, explanation, transfer learning and knowledge consolidation. 

We invite submissions of novel research and practice papers addressing any of the aspects of neurosymbolic integration: representation of symbolic knowledge by neural networks, structured learning and relational learning in neural networks, reasoning in neural networks, knowledge extraction and distilling, neural-symbolic cognitive models and agents, and applications of neurosymbolic systems in robotics, simulation, fraud prevention, planning, natural language processing, semantic web, software engineering, autonomous systems verification, multimodal and online learning, semi-supervised and reinforcement learning, fault-tolerant computing, data science and analytics, bioinformatics, visual intelligence, etc.

​

In its 13th edition, and follows on from two successful Dagstuhl seminars on the topic in 2014 and 2017, and the sister Cognitive Computation symposium series, NeSy will take the shape of a 3-day conference with an associated journal publication in the prestigious IfCoLog online Journal of Applied Logic (JAL). 

As in all previous editions (c.f.  <http://www.neural-symbolic.org/> www.neural-symbolic.org), NeSy will bring together world-leading academics and practitioners, including keynote and invited talks, contributed papers and a round table discussion, to present the latest results in neurosymbolic computing. 

​

Authors of contributed papers are encouraged to use the LaTex article style, a 12pt font, and to submit a paper with no more than 12 pages plus references.

Papers should be submitted as electronic attachments in pdf format by email to the College Publications managing director, Ms Jane Spurr ( <mailto:jal at kcl.ac.uk> jal at kcl.ac.uk). The email message should include the author(s) names and affiliations, the title of the paper and the name of the NeSy'18 co-chair best suited to handle the submission. Please use the phrase "NeSy18 JAL submission" in the subject line. 

​

The paper submission deadline is June 11, 2018.

​

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference. Feedback will be provided in writing by the programme committee and verbally at the conference, and is expected to be incorporated into the final version of the paper for publication in the JAL. Since the journal is online, papers will be published as soon as they are ready. 

​

Late breaking papers can be submitted for presentation at the conference by 01/08/2018. Such papers may be accepted for publication at the JAL following a second round of reviews after the conference. 

​

Programme Co-chairs: Artur d'Avila Garcez, Tarek R. Besold.  

Keywords: neurosymbolic computing, neural networks, machine learning, knowledge representation and reasoning.

BICA'18: Ninth Annual International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures

########################################################


When: August 23 & 24, 2018
Where: Prague, Czech Republic
Event URL:  <http://bica2018.bicasociety.org/> http://bica2018.bicasociety.org/


Ninth Annual International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA 2018) will be held as a part of HLAI-18 in Prague, Czech Republic, on August 22-24. 

​

Since 2010, the annual BICA conference attracts researchers from the edge of scientific frontiers, showing steady growth success over eight years. In contrast with major conferences in AI and cognitive science, we offer informal brainstorming atmosphere together with publication venues to ambitious ideas, regardless of their immediate practical value or solid empirical justification. If you believe that you have a constructive contribution to the future human-like AI, then you should present your work at BICA 2018. BICAns understand "biological inspirations" broadly, borrowing them from cognitive psychology, educational, neurosciences, linguistics, ethics, narratology, studies of design and creativity, and more. The "filter" is the question of whether your contribution may help us make machines our friends or understand how the mind works.

​

Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA) are computational frameworks for building intelligent agents that are inspired from biological intelligence. Biological intelligent systems, notably humans, have many qualities that are often lacking in artificially designed systems including robustness, flexibility and adaptability to environments. At a point in time where visibility into naturally intelligent systems is exploding, thanks to modern brain imaging and recording techniques allowing us to map brain structures and functions, our ability to learn lessons from nature and to build biologically.

​

Further details will be announced on http://bica2018.bicasociety.org/.
