CIHLI 2013

2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence for Human-like Intelligence

Symposium organizers welcome papers related to accomplishing human-like intelligence by artificial systems. In many research domains the existing state-of-the-art CI solutions significantly differ from the human competence level. Even though it is generally not clear whether human-like approach would show its upper-hand over existing methods, the exploration of this research path seems to be advantageous and challenging.

The main goal of this symposium is to promote and advance research activities related to all facets of human-like intelligence. The organizers encourage submission of the papers describing application of  various Computational Intelligence paradigms  including neural networks, genetic / memetic computing, fuzzy logic, machine learning, reinforcement learning techniques to human-like knowledge acquisition and representation and human-like problem solving.

HLI Topics

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

         problem solving based on intuition, creativity, insight, curiosity and imagination;

         chunk-based representations and the use of geometrical properties in problem solving,

         hierarchical knowledge representation,

         the role of motivation in autonomous behavior,

         guiding role of emotions in discovery;

         machine consciousness,

         lifelong learning, transfer learning and multitask learning,

         cognitively-plausible architectures and systems.
