Artificial Intelligence Roadmap Workshop 2 – Interaction
A 20-Year Community Roadmap for Artificial Intelligence Research in the US
This is the Executive Summary of the community report. The full report is due out for public comment by the end of March 2019.
Given the increasingly pervasive use of AI technologies in all sectors of industry and government, and the enormous potential for future AI-based technologies, the Computing Community Consortium, in working with the NSF, is sponsoring an AI Roadmap to help prioritize research investments. This initiative is analogous to the Robotics Roadmap that, ten years ago, led to the National Robotics Initiative, a multi-agency, multi-year investment by the federal government. NSF has pledged to increase its investments in AI and DARPA has already announced a $2B multi-year investment in AI research. Additional significant investments are under discussion at multiple federal agencies.
We believe strongly that the time is right for the AI community to articulate our collective vision for the future of AI research. The focus of the AI Roadmap will be on long-term research opportunities and potential investments, ten years out and beyond.
The AI Roadmap initiative is being chaired by Yolanda Gil (USC) and Bart Selman (Cornell). Three workshops are planned, with approximately 30 researchers attending each workshop. The theme of this second workshop is Interaction and it will take place on January 8-9 in Denver, Colorado. The chairs of the interaction workshop are Kathy McKeown (Columbia University) and Dan Weld (University of Washington).
The objective is to sketch an agenda for developing the most promising AI approaches that can lead to advancements in how computers interact with people and the world; this may include dialog, mixed-initiative collaborative systems, interpretable AI, human-robot interaction, advanced perceptual systems as well as more implicit elements of interaction such as trust, safety, ethics, and inference. We are particularly interested in identifying challenging new applications that can have an impact on society with increased investment.
More details of the agenda and logistics coming soon!
