Creating systems that respond promptly to human cues is a daunting task that requires international and cross-field collaboration. On October 5-6th, IIIM Director Dr. Kristinn R. Thórisson will feature as the keynote speaker of a workshop in Hamburg, Germany. In Dr. Thórisson’s two decades of experience in industry and academia, he has pioneered new ideas in the area of communicative, multimodal intelligent agents and developed a cognitive architecture for the humanoid robot ASIMO.

Vol I Issue I
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.
On Thursday, August 4, IIIM organized a workshop on self-programming in AGI systems at the Fourth Conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) in Google’s headquarters, Mountain View, CA. The workshop featured presentations by seven authors on the subject of self-programming systems and a panel discussion among the participants.

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
