The Annual International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architecture (BICA) will be held from October 31st until November 3rd in Palermo, Italy.
The challenge of creating a real-life computational equivalent of the human mind, known as the BICA Challenge, calls for joint efforts to develop biologically-inspired intelligent agents that can be accepted and trusted in various roles by the human society, and putting them on equal footing with human agents. The main objective of BICA 2012 is to take a significant step forward towards the BICA Challenge.
IIIM’s Managing Director, Dr. Kristinn R. Thórisson, will give a keynote talk on the topic of achieving AGI within his lifetime.
