THEMES

Participants from all disciplines that are relevant for fundamental issues of present and future 
AI, especially cognitive science, computer science, neuroscience and philosophy. A broad framework 
is set by questions like: What are the necessary conditions for artificial intelligence (if any); 
what are sufficient ones? What do these questions relate to the conditions for intelligence in 
humans and other natural agents? What are the ethical and societal problems that artificial 
intelligence raises, or will raise? Some of the key issues will be:

         ? AI and cognitive science
         ? consciousness
         ? dynamical systems
         ? embedded, situated, distributed cognition, extended mind
         ? embodiment, enaction, morphology
         ? ethics of AI and robotics
         ? brain emulation and simulation
         ? goals, emotions, values, free will
         ? hybrid systems, cyborgs
         ? information
         ? intelligence and intelligence testing
         ? intentionality
         ? interactive systems
         ? learning and evolution
         ? multi-agent systems
         ? notions and forms of computing for AI
         ? perception
         ? probabilistic systems
         ? reasoning
         ? social impact of present and future AI
