Artificial Intelligence / Operations Research Workshop II
This is an in-person workshop sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium (CCC), the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) and ACM SIGAI to create a joint vision for fusing the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Operations Research (OR) communities to be held in Atlanta, Georgia on August 16-17, 2022.
This workshop is the second in a three part series which will focus on exploiting the synergies of the AI and OR communities to transform highly scalable, actionable, automated data-driven decision-making. The goal of this workshop series is to establish a joint strategic vision for AI/OR that will maximize the societal impact of AI and OR in a world that is facing significant challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, widening inequalities, and challenges in resilience and sustainability in the food-water-energy nexus, among others. There will be four sessions focusing on foundational elements of trustworthy AI.
- Explainable AI / Causality
- Robustness / Privacy
- Human Alignment and Human-Computer Interaction
While the first workshop focused on articulating a strategic vision, this workshop will focus on what it takes to develop and deploy intelligent systems based on AI and OR technology that are trustworthy. In particular, the workshop will:
- study the state of the art in Trustworthy AI from a multi-disciplinary lens and for various application domains;
- articulate grand challenges that need to be overcome to deploy trustworthy AI systems in the wild. Specifically, what tools and technologies have to be developed and evaluated for each of the foundational elements of trustworthy AI systems.
- select a few topics for summer schools and research programs to foster collaborations in AI/OR for these topics.
Grand challenges may be fundamental societal problems for which an AI/OR approach has significant promise and/or scientific advances that would fundamentally transform both fields. The workshop will invite thought leaders from both fields and balance a variety of considerations to create a stimulating, diverse, and inclusive forum for creating this joint vision.
