CALL FOR PAPERS: Impacts and Risks of Artificial General Intelligence, 10th-11th Dec.2012, OXFORD, UK

AGI IMPACTS 2012

The first conference on the Impacts and Risks of Artificial General Intelligence will take place at 
the University of Oxford, St. Annes College, on December 10th and 11th, 2012  immediately 
following the fifth annual conference on Artificial General Intelligence AGI-12 
(http://agi-conf.org/2012). AGI-Impacts is organized by the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI) at
Oxford University through its Programme on the Impacts of Future Technology. The two events form 
the Winter Intelligence Multi-Conference 2012, hosted by FHI. http://www.winterintelligence.org

The conference will explore questions such as: How can we best predict the impact of as future 
intelligent and superintelligent machines? How can we combine ideas from computer science, 
mathematics and philosophy to best estimate this impact? What will be the impacts of AGI on the 
world? Which directions of research should be most explored, and which should be de-emphasized or 
avoided?   What can we do to best ensure scientific rigour in this non-experimental academic field?
What are the best ideas and methods for ensuring both safety and predictability of advanced AI 
systems? Can we lay the foundations to a field of rigorous study of realistic AGI control methods 
that lead to implementable security protocols?

The scope is wide, but all papers are expected to be of high quality and with the maximal amount 
of rigour that is possible for the subject area. We envisage publication of selected submissions in
a special journal issue.


SUBMISSION  PUBLICATION - PRIZE

Please submit your paper to our easychair conference website 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=agiimpacts2012
Submit an abstract of ca. 400-800 words, with author contact information by August 31st, 2012.

A selection of papers from AGI-Impacts 2012 will be published in a special volume of the 'Journal 
of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence' in 2013.

Attendees at this conference and at the AGI-12 conference are eligible for the '2012 Turing Prize 
for Best AGI Safety Paper': The Singularity Institute sponsors a 00 prize for a paper or 
contribution to AGI-12′ and AGI-Impacts 2012′ in recognition of exceptional research on the 
question of how to develop safe architectures or goals for artificial general intelligence (AGI).
