The 1st International Workshop on

Harmonious and Symbiotic Interaction in AI & Robotics (HSIAR2020)

in conjunction with IJCAI-PRICAI2020, Yokohama, Japan. July 2020.

Important dates

Call for Papers:

Harmonious and Symbiotic Interaction in AI & Robotics has been widely studied and are one of the emerging areas of research in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. HSIAR2020 is based on Japanese CREST project of “Intelligent Information Processing Systems Creating Co-Experience Knowledge and Wisdom with Human-Machine Harmonious Collaboration”. This research area will advance research and development targeting intelligent information processing systems that create co-experience knowledge and wisdom through “balanced or harmonious collaboration” of humans and machines including AI and robotics and bring about an improvement in the quality of the intellectual activities of individuals and groups. The balanced or harmonious and symbiotic collaboration means that not only users but also human society may feel the services of machines (or systems) acceptable in the human-machine collaboration.

HSIAR2020 will target the following research issues::

Papers are expected to include the state-of-the-art technologies in appropriate areas such as information processing, cognitive sciences, social sciences, natural language, computer science, computational science, and robotics, needed for building the systems. Resultant systems may bring about an ambient information society harmonizing humans and machines.

HSIAR2020 will discuss, among others, the following aspects and topics of Harmonious and Symbiotic Interaction in AI & Robotics, which have distinct relationships with IJCAI-PRICAI main conference topics:

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from these communities to learn about each other's approaches to the harmonious and symbiotic interaction in AI & robotics, encourages the exchange of ideas between the different areas, and potentially fosters long-term research collaborations to accelerate progress towards scaling up to larger and more realistic applications.
