Here at IIIM we are excited to share with you our first newsletter! The aim of the newsletter is to cast light on the research projects we’re working on, events related to the field of AI and IIIM’s collaborations.
In this first newsletter you can read about Dr. Yngvi Björnsson’s account on IIIM’s and CADIA’s collaboration and Dr. Jacky Mallett’s article on Simulating Modern Banking Systems. There is also a pieces on the RU hosted “Humanobs Constructivist Workshop“, where researchers from around the world came together in a search for answers in the growing field of Artificial General Intelligence.
Time & Location
September 1-2, 2011 in Reykjavik University, Reykjavik, Iceland
Full information can be found on the HUMANOBS workshop wiki
The HUMANOBS Workshop is focused on the impending paradigm shift from constructionist to constructivist methodologies for building artificial intelligence. Constructionist refers to traditional top-down software design, which places serious limitations on scaling, while Constructivist refers to self-organizing systems that manage their own growth.
Update, August: Please note that the final program agenda is subject to change. Final details are kept up to date on the official HUMANOBS workshop website. Continue reading HUMANOBS Workshop on Constructivist Methodologies for Building Artificial Intelligence
