Call: Human-Machine Communication at International Communication Association 2020

Call for Papers

Human-Machine Communication Interest Group
International Communication Association
70th annual conference – ICA 2020
Gold Coast, Australia
21-25 May 2020
Conference: https://www.icahdq.org/page/2020CFP
HMC: https://www.icahdq.org/mpage/HMC_CFP

Submission deadline: 1 November 2019 at 16:00 UTC

The Human-Machine Communication (HMC) Interest Group supports and promotes scholarship regarding communication between people and technologies designed to enact the role of communicator. Such technologies include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence (AI) software and devices, robots, digital and home assistants, automated-writing software, smart toys, and Internet of Things (IOT) devices. HMC research focuses on the meaning-making that unfolds when people engage directly with technology as a communicative subject rather than as an object used to communicate with other people. HMC encompasses the aspects of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), Human-Agent Interaction (HAI), and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) pertaining to technologies that function as communicators. It also includes the philosophical and critical examination of these technologies and their integration into daily life.… read more. “Call: Human-Machine Communication at International Communication Association 2020”

Call: “AI and Law – Ethical, Legal, and Sociopolitical Implications” issue of AI & Society

Call for Papers

AI & Society: Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Communication
Editor-in-Chief: Karamjit S. Gill (editoraisoc@yahoo.co.uk)

Special issue on: AI and Law – Ethical, Legal, and Sociopolitical Implications

Extended Deadline: December 31, 2019

Contributions are invited for a Special Issue on AI and Law – Ethical, Legal, and Socio-political Implications, to be published by the AI & Society Journal of Culture, Knowledge and Communication (Springer) (http://link.springer.com/journal/146).

This special issue examines the ethical, legal, and socio-political implications of AI and Law. The unprecedented technological advances of the recent decades have had a number of positive effects in almost every area of human life, they have also brought significant concerns in how the rapidly growing development and utilization of smart technologies relates to future law and ethics. This special issue also attempts to initiate a debate of how to regulate the development of smart technologies and robotics to increase the welfare of society without violating its fundamental values.… read more. “Call: “AI and Law – Ethical, Legal, and Sociopolitical Implications” issue of AI & Society”

Submission deadline: February 15, 2020

AI is rapidly changing every aspect of our society from how we conduct business, socialize and exercise. AI has amplified our productivity as well as biases. John Giannandrea, who leads AI at Google, recently lamented in the MIT Technology Review that the dangers posed by the ability of AI systems to learn human prejudices were far greater than those posed by killer-robots. This phenomenon is problematic because AI systems are making millions of decisions every minute many of which are invisible to the users and incomprehensible to the designers.… read more. “Call: AI Fairness, Trust and Ethics issue of AIS Transactions on HCI”

Call: Perceptions of Creativity in Human and Artificial Intelligence Survey

[From the Philos-L e-list. –Matthew]

Perceptions of Creativity in Human and Artificial Intelligence Survey

You are warmly invited to take part in a survey measuring the perceptions of creativity in human and artificial intelligence.

This research project is funded by the Industrial Humanities Research Priority Area Development of the University of Nottingham and its aim is to consider the perceptions and attitudes that the audience has in respect to creative activities performed by Artificial Intelligence.

During the questionnaire you will be asked questions relative to your intuitions about the notion of creativity and your attitudes regarding the use of AI systems in the field of creative arts. The questionnaire should take approximately 15 minutes. Your answers will remain completely anonymous and will only be used for research purposes.

This research will help informing a larger project which aims at exploring the perceptions of a range of audiences to the moral, pragmatic and educational value of deploying AI in a range of different contexts.… read more. “Call: Perceptions of Creativity in Human and Artificial Intelligence Survey”

Call: Philosophical Problems of Artificial Intelligence – ISDA 2019 Special Track

[Note: This and calls for other special sessions of potential interest are at http://www.mirlabs.org/isda19/cfss.php. –Matthew]

CALL for PAPERS:

PPAI-ISDA 2019: Special Track:
Philosophical Problems of Artificial Intelligence
at the 19th International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA)
December 03-05, 2019
Pretoria, South Africa

Submission deadline: 1st of September

MOTIVATION:

Since the notorious “Turing Test” had been proposed, by means of which one can (allegedly) measure if or to what extent a computer possesses features of intelligence, the philosophical debates on this topic have not ended. Famous thinkers like Hans Driesch, John Searl (with the “Chinese room”), Hilary Putnam, Noam Chomsky, or Roger Penrose (to name only a few) have made their well-known ground-breaking contributions, and at least one specialist journal, namely Minds & Machines, has since continued to provide ever finer arguments in smaller and smaller details. In addition to the philosophical Epistemology of AI, the philosophical Ethics of AI was inspired by eminent thinkers such as Isaac Asimov (with his well-known “laws of robotics”) or Joseph Weizenbaum (with “Computer Power and Human Reason”).… read more. “Call: Philosophical Problems of Artificial Intelligence – ISDA 2019 Special Track”

Call: 3rd Workshop on Mixed Reality for Intelligent Vehicles (MRV 2019)

Call for REFLECTION STATEMENTS (1-2p. CHI EA format) and INTEREST

3rd Workshop on Mixed Reality for Intelligent Vehicles (MRV 2019)
Colocated with AutoUI 2019 (http://www.auto-ui.org/19)
September 22, 2019
Utrecht, Netherlands
http://www.andreasriener.com/AutoUI19WS_MRV/

Submission deadline: August 25, 2019.

With the increasing development of Augmented reality (AR), the number of its purposes and applications in vehicles rises. Augmented reality may help to increase road safety, support more immersive (non-) driving related activities, and finally enhance driving and passenger experience. AR may also be the enabling technology to increase trust and acceptance in automated vehicles and therefore help on the transition towards automated driving. Further, automated driving extends use cases of augmented and other immersive technologies. However, there are still a number of challenges with the use of augmented reality when applied in vehicles, and also several human factors issues need to be solved.… read more. “Call: 3rd Workshop on Mixed Reality for Intelligent Vehicles (MRV 2019)”
