Welcome to the first open meeting of the portfolio of projects funded by the EIC Pathfinder Challenge “Awareness Inside“.
Date: 1st October
Duration: full day – 11:00 – 17:00
Location: 26th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence ECAI 2023 – Kraków, Poland
Room: WFAIS A-1-03
Awareness and consciousness have been high on the Artificial Intelligence (AI) research agenda for decades. Progress has been difficult because it has been hard to agree on exactly what it means to be aware. Most researches would agree though that we do not have any truly aware artificial system yet, that awareness is much more than a sensorial sophistication and that it is much more than any Artificial Intelligence as we know it. But, what is it then that a user would expect from a service or device that has ‘awareness inside’?
In this workshop we will present all eight “Awareness Inside” projects funded to explore this question. Join our meeting to see preliminary results, and debate the meaning of awareness.
