Call: Human-Centered AI workshop at NeurIPS 2021

Call for Papers

Human-Centered AI workshop
At NeurIPS 2021 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems
Monday 13 December 2021
Online
https://sites.google.com/view/hcai-human-centered-ai-neurips/home

Submission deadline (Extended): 25 September 2021 AoE

Human-Centered AI (HCAI) is an emerging discipline that aims to create AI systems that amplify and augment human abilities and preserve human control in order to make AI partnerships more productive, enjoyable, and fair. Our workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the NeurIPS and HCI communities and others with convergent interests in HCAI. With an emphasis on diversity and discussion, we will explore research questions that stem from the increasingly wide-spread usage of machine learning algorithms across all areas of society, with a specific focus on understanding both technical and design requirements for HCAI systems, as well as how to evaluate the efficacy and effects of HCAI systems.

AIM

Increased life expectancy is an achievement of modern societies thanks to the technological progress in health, living places and quality of food. One of the consequences of an ageing society is the growing incidence of chronic diseases. This trend imposes the need for innovative approaches to assistance, including the ability of self-management, which has become an increasingly important requirement of healthcare in Europe and beyond.

Innovative interventions embedded with e-health applications are extremely important to improve the Active and Healthy Ageing of the population.… read more. “Call: ALTRUIST 2021 – Workshop on sociAL roboTs for peRsonalized, continUous and adaptIve aSsistTance”

Call: Chapters for “Humanizing Artificial Intelligence. Psychoanalysis and the Problem of Control”

CALL FOR CHAPTERS for the edited book:
Humanizing Artificial Intelligence. Psychoanalysis and the Problem of Control
Publisher: De Gruyter

Submission deadline: October 30, 2021

Success in artificial intelligence (AI) would be the biggest event in human history…and perhaps also the last event in human history.” The words of Stuart Russell, one of the most important AI scientists, identify a crucial problem of our time: the control of AI. Alan Turing also stated, “If a machine can think, it might think more intelligently than we do, and then where should we be? […] This new danger is certainly something which can give us anxiety.” Investments in AI are quite significant around the world. Research is developing at an incredibly fast pace and in an ever less controllable manner. Building a human-like AI, or super-intelligent AGI (artificial general intelligence), is becoming a logical possibility and even a strategic asset.… read more. “Call: Chapters for “Humanizing Artificial Intelligence.

Call: Chapters for “Research Handbook on Artificial Intelligence and Communication”

Call for Contributors

Research Handbook on Artificial Intelligence and Communication
Editor: Seungahn Nah (University of Oregon), snah@uoregon.edu
Publisher: Edward Elgar

Abstract submission deadline: October 31, 2021

Artificial intelligence (AI) has garnered growing scholarly attention in the communication field and beyond as AI becomes omnipresent in everyday lives from search engine through voice recognition technology to mobile news apps. Although research on the intersection between AI and communication is plethora, this emerging field remains unexplored in terms of conceptual, theoretical, methodological approaches as well as ethical, legal, practical, and policy issues. This research handbook epitomizes a rich body of studies concerning communicating of, by, and with AI from interdisciplinary perspectives and international scopes. Specifically, the research handbook deals with a wide range of the following topics and issues but are not limited to:

  • Meta-analysis or systematic review of studies regarding the intersection between AI and communication
  • Conceptual and theoretical essays concerning the interrelationship between AI and communication
  • Methodological approaches to analyzing artificial intelligence and communication
  • News media coverage of artificial intelligence (single, multiple, and cross-country comparison)
  • Online discourse concerning artificial intelligence across the digital communication platforms
  • Public opinion, attitude, perception, and behavior
  • Public adoption and use
  • Public trust and credibility
  • Public knowledge and literacy
  • Public discussion and news use
  • Diffusion of AI
  • AI-Mediated Communication
  • Human-AI Interaction, Human-Robot Interaction
  • Human-Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • AI in Education
  • Ethical (e.g., algorithmic bias), legal (e.g., privacy), and policy issues
  • Practical Issues (e.g., AI design)

Call: “Ethics in Robotics and Intelligent Machines” issue of Humana.Mente

Call for Papers:
Ethics in Robotics and Intelligent Machines
HUMANA.MENTE Journal of Philosophical Studies

Edited by:
Fiorella Battaglia (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich)
Barbara Henry (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa)
Alberto Pirni (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa)

Deadline for submissions: September 30th 2022

Ethical issues are among the most interesting in emerging technologies. Theoretical and technological advances are more and more building machines that are so efficient as to share the same environment with human beings. This makes ethics a crucial step in the process of developing robotics and intelligent machines. Without ethical reflection, there is a risk of delaying technological developments. Ethical reflection starts upstream at the very beginning of the enquiry by questioning researchers about what they are doing, why, and for whom. It explores their values and broadens the research focus by engaging other stakeholders; it includes intuitions to be weighed against other intuitions, and it tests them against theology, sapiential knowledge, arts, and normative theories.… read more. “Call: “Ethics in Robotics and Intelligent Machines” issue of Humana.Mente”

Conventionally, places are characterized by physical features (i.e., furniture layout, quality of daylighting, etc.) and behaviors of people who occupy them (i.e., eating, meeting friends, etc.). The advent of virtual technologies (computers, Internet-of-things, etc.) and the social distancing behaviors adopted during the pandemic (Zoom meetings, remote learning) have changed our conventional sense of place. While virtual technology has disrupted our traditional behaviors in corresponding physical locations, it has also transformed virtual experiences such as online shopping, remote work, tele worship, telemedicine, home Yoga, home entertainment, virtual happy hours, and home-schooling among others.… read more. “Call: “Exploring the Future of Interior Design in a Virtual-Physical Continuum” issue of Journal of Interior Design”

Dear all,

On January 27 and 28, 2022, there will be an international online conference on Intercultural Ethics, with a specific focus on the ethics of technology and intercultural philosophy. Our aim is to bring together the ethical approaches and frameworks from various cultural backgrounds and traditions, in order to organize an intercultural ethical dialogue, especially on (but not limited to) technology and its social and cultural implications.

The conference will be organized by the Ethics of Socially Disruptive Technologies research program: a 10-year program in which 5 universities collaborate to investigate how new and emerging technologies challenge our ethical frameworks and approaches (for more information: see www.esdit.nl). It will be hosted from the University of Twente, the Netherlands.… read more. “Call: IET 2022: Intercultural Ethics and Technology Conference”
