BDebate - Artificial Intelligence: Dreams, Risks, and Reality

7th and 8th March 2017, Barcelona


It cannot be denied that Artificial Intelligence is having a growing impact in many areas of human activity. It is helping humans to communicate with each other, even beyond linguistic boundaries, find information in the vast resources available on the web, solve challenging problems that go beyond the competence of a single expert, and enable the deployment of autonomous systems, such as self-driving cars, that handle complex interactions with the real world with little or no human intervention. These applications are perhaps not like the fully autonomous conscious intelligent robots that science fiction stories have been predicting, but they are nevertheless very important and useful, and most importantly they are real and here today.

But neither can it be denied that Artificial Intelligence comes with certain risks. Many people (including luminaries such as Bill Gates or Stephen Hawking) believe that the main risk of artificial intelligence is that it gets out of hand. Machines that can learn, reconfigure themselves, and make copies of themselves may outrun the human race, become smarter than us and take over. To researchers in the field this risk seems far-fetched. But they see other risks which are already upon us and need urgent remediation.

Concretely, AI algorithms, particularly those embedded in the web and social media, are having an important impact on who talks with whom, how information is selected and presented, and how facts (justified or fake) propagate and compete in public space. However these AI algorithms are now held (at least partly) responsible for allowing the emergence of a post-truth world, highjacking democratic decision processes, and dangerously polarizing society. These developments are making it much more difficult to deal with the big issues facing our society, such as mitigating climate change, diminishing pollution, achieving economic prosperity for an exploding population, coping with massive migration, etc. They all require determined collective action and therefore a political consensus. 

This B·Debate, organized by Biocat and "la Caixa" Foundation, together with the Institut de Biologia Evolutiva (IBE - CSIC/UPF) and the Institut d'Investigacio en Intel-ligencia Artificial (CSIC), brings together top experts concerned with the benefits and risks of AI, particularly, but not exclusively, in the domain of web and social media, and seeks to come up with ways to deal with these new challenges.

The first day (March 7th) is a closed meeting with experts (by invitation only). The second day of the debate (March 8th) is an open session with previous registration.

AIME2017 will be a unique opportunity to present and improve the international state of the art of AI in medicine from perspectives of theory, methodology, and application.  We are happy to announce our keynote speakers: Stefan Schulz (University Graz)  and Kenneth Barker  (T. J. Watson Research Center IBM).
Scope of AIME:
Contributions to theory and methods should present or analyze novel AI theories or methodologies for solving problems in the biomedical field. It is equally possible to present new theories and methods or extensions of existing ones. In both cases, the work should demonstrate its utility for solving biomedical problems and highlight its contribution to the underlying theoretical basis. In addition, assumptions and limitations should be discussed, and novelty with respect to the state of the art.
Contributions addressing systems and applications should describe the development, implementation or evaluation of innovative, AI-based tools and systems in the biomedical application domain. These papers should both link the work to underlying theory, and either analyse the potential benefits to solve biomedical problems or present empirical evidence of benefits in clinical practice.

11th International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM)

October 4-6, 2017 - Granada, Spain


The 11th International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM) will be held in Granada, Spain on October 4-6, 2017. The conference will bring together researchers who are working with imperfect information in fields such as artificial intelligence, databases, data mining, information retrieval, and risk analysis with
the aim of fostering collaboration and cross-fertilization of ideas from different communities.

An originality of SUM is that it gives a large space to tutorials about a large range of topics related to uncertainty management. Each tutorial provides a 45 minute survey of one of the research areas in the scope of the conference.

Topics of Interest:

We solicit papers on the management of large amounts or complex kinds of uncertain, incomplete, or inconsistent information. We are particularly interested in papers that focus on bridging gaps, for instance between different communities, between numerical and symbolic approaches, or between theory and practice. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Imperfect information in databases
- Methods for modeling, indexing, and querying uncertain databases
- Top-k queries, skyline query processing, and ranking
- Approximate, fuzzy query processing
- Uncertainty in data integration and exchange
- Uncertainty and imprecision in geographic information systems
- Probabilistic databases and possibilistic databases?
- Data provenance and trust
- Data summarization
- Very large datasets
- Imperfect information in information retrieval and semantic web applications
- Approximate schema and ontology matching
- Uncertainty in description logics and logic programming
- Learning to rank, personalization, and user preferences
- Probabilistic language models
- Combining vector-space models with symbolic representations
- Inductive reasoning for the semantic web
- Imperfect information in artificial intelligence
- Statistical relational learning, graphical models, probabilistic inference
- Argumentation, defeasible reasoning, belief revision
- Weighted logics for managing uncertainty
- Reasoning with imprecise probability, Dempster-Shafer theory, possibility theory
- Approximate reasoning, similarity-based reasoning, analogical reasoning
- Planning under uncertainty, reasoning about actions, spatial and temporal reasoning
- Incomplete preference specifications
- Learning from data
- Risk analysis
- Aleatory vs. epistemic uncertainty
- Uncertainty elicitation methods
- Uncertainty propagation methods
- Decision analysis methods
- Tools for synthesizing results

Accepted long and short papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. Authors of an accepted long or short paper will be expected to sign copyright release forms, and one author is expected to give a presentation at the conference. Authors of accepted abstracts will be expected to present their work
during the conference, but the extended abstracts will not be published in the LNCS/LNAI proceedings (they will be made available in a separate booklet).

26th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI)

August 19-25, 2017 - Melbourne, Australia


The Program Committee of the Twenty-sixth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-17) invites the submission of technical papers for the main technical track of the conference which will be held in Melbourne, Australia, from August 19th to August 25th, 2017. Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of artificial intelligence. All papers will receive mindful and rigorous reviews. For nearly a half-century, IJCAI has remained the premier conference bringing together the international AI community in communicating the advances and celebrating the achievements of artificial intelligence research and practice. With the current explosive interest in AI and its applications, this 26th edition of the conference is guaranteed to provide an exciting forum to present and hear about cutting-edge research in AI.

A special theme of IJCAI-17 is Autonomy. While autonomy has been a focus of interest in the research community for many years, recent developments in the adoption of artificial intelligence and other technologies across many different areas of endeavour have brought new challenges or have made real those that until now had been largely abstract and theoretical. The increasing number of major corporations developing autonomous cars, the use of autonomous vehicles in the sea and in the air, the proliferation of drones for different purposes including military ones, and the availability of personal assistants via the desktop or smartphone are just some examples of the ways in which these challenges are facing us in everyday life. In recognition of this trend, and in support of addressing some of these challenges, this Special Track seeks to foster discussion and debate around the issues brought forward by this new generation of technologies and applications. We seek papers that address or consider the challenges across multiple different dimensions: Technical, Philosophical, Legal, and Social.

The scientific program of IJCAI 2017 will also contain Workshops, Tutorials, Demonstrations, Robotic Exhibitions, a Doctoral consortium, and will host different software, video, and robotics competitions.

The conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, a space that has won numerous awards for its architecture and interior design. Conveniently located on the banks of the Yarra River the convention centre is within walking distance of the city centre and a wide range of restaurants and hotels, with options suitable for all budgets. The workshops and tutorials will be held at close by RMIT University, one of the largest universities in Australia. There is a free tram that runs between RMIT and a block away from the convention centre.

Abstract submission: February 16th, 2017
Paper submission: February 19th, 2017
Acceptance notification: April 23rd, 2017
Conference: August 19th - 25th, 2017
