2018 WCCI Workshop on the Ethics and Social Implications of Computational Intelligence
July 8 - July 13
CALL FOR PAPERS
Today, Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques are embodied within many technologies. For example, Fuzzy Control is a central piece within most control systems for technologies such as washing machines. Deep Neural Networks are sitting today on most smart phones offering search-by-image capabilities. Evolutionary Computation is creating a leap forward in industry and robotics when coupled with 3D printing that allows evolved robots to come to life quickly and with low cost. CI researchers excel in designing and implementing these technologies to create significant positive impact on the economy and human society as a whole. It is incumbent upon us as socially-responsible CI researchers to understand the ethical and social implications of the technologies we create and champion. The objective of the workshop is to discuss the ethical and moral principles that govern the behaviour of CI technology, as well as the designer. The workshop will include keynote presentations, standard paper presentations and a panel discussion related to ethics and social implications.
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2015
