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
         super-intelligence
         ...
