W02: Workshop on Intelligence Science
Organizers: Zhongzhi Shi and Jianhua Zhang
Artificial Intelligence research has made substantial progress since the 1950s. However, many state-of-the-art intelligent systems are still not able to outperform human intelligence. To advance the research in artificial intelligence, it is beneficial to investigate intelligence, both artificial and natural, in an interdisciplinary context. The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers from brain science, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence to explore the essence and technology of intelligence. Topics of interest related to Intelligence Science include but are not limited to the following areas: • Basic process of neural activity in brain • Perceptual representation and feature binding • Coding and retrieval of memory • Linguistic cognition • Learning and synaptic plasticity • Exploration and active sampling • Thought and decision making • Emotion and affection • Development and adaptation of intelligence • Nature of consciousness • Mind modeling • Cognitive computing and simulation • Brain-computer integration • Intelligent robots and virtual humans • Brain-like machine • Creativity • Abstraction • Integration of aspects of intelligence Submissions process Authors should submit their papers through the Easychair system using the IJCAI formatting guidelines. If you would like to participate, submit either a full paper of no more than 6 pages (or 6,000 words); a short paper, or problem instance (at most 3 pages or 3,000 words); or a position statement (1 page). Short papers may address an important problem for further research.
