Here's our daily update in tweets, live from IJCAI (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence) in Macau. Like yesterday, we'll be covering tutorials and workshops. Now attending the #tutorial "Argumentation and Machine Learning: When the Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts" by @CeruttiFederico, & learning about #ML mechanisms that create, annotate, analyze & evaluate arguments expressed in natural language.#AI Now: "Dialogues with Socially Aware Robot Agents – Knowledge & Reasoning using Natural Language," an invited #IJCAI2019 talk by Prof. Kristiina Jokinen Her start: "The quality of #intelligence possessed by humans and #AI is fundamentally different."#Bridging2019 On his second slide: #AGI "needs fresh methods with cognitive architectures and philosophy of mind."#AI
The main IJCAI2019 conference started on August 13th. The organizers gave the opening remarks and statistics, and announced the award winners for this year. I was last here 22 years ago, and it's nice to be back. Over the next 2-3 days I'm hoping to post a few links and descriptions of the exciting search work my students and colleagues will be presenting here. Super proud that our paper got distinguished paper honorable mention today @IJCAIconf #ijcai2019 .
Like yesterday, we bring you the best tweets covering major talks and events at IJCAI 2019. Follow the invited talk by @MichelaMilano1 at @IJCAIconf "Empirical Model Learning: merging knowledge-based and data-driven decision models through machine learning" https://t.co/FA7gR0105H Interesting idea to use deep forest ensembles as alternative to deep neural networks. Introducing the #AIglassbox: @RecklessCoding presents our paper at #ijcai2019. This takes place in 10 minutes!
All the below links and tweets are in English. A test run of a robot using artificial intelligence has begun in Hamamatsu City, central Japan. The robot is designed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus by identifying people not wearing masks. Norway's Minister for Research and Higher Education Iselin Nybø is visiting Japan, including AISTs Artificial Intelligence R&D Center. NEC Corporation signed an LoI to support R&D activities in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at the proposed India Japan Centre for Artificial intelligence and Robotics (IJCAIR) at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
