Artificial Intelligence Roadmap Workshop 3 – Learning and Robotics
January 17-18, 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 third workshop is Learning and Robotics and it will take place on January 17-18 in San Francisco, CA. The chairs of the Learning and Robotics workshop are Fei-Fei Li (Stanford University) and Thomas G. Dietterich (Oregon State University).
The Workshop on Learning and Robotics is the third workshop in the series. The objective is to sketch an agenda for developing the most promising AI approaches that can lead to advancements in learning, looking at deeper learning, integrated statistical learning and symbolic representations, and diversified learning modalities. We will also look into robotics and AI to determine opportunities for embodied AI. 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!

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will cover travel expenses for all participants who desire it. Participants are asked to make their own travel arrangements to get to the workshop, including purchasing airline tickets. Following the symposium, CCC will circulate a reimbursement form that participants will need to complete and submit, along with copies of receipts for amounts exceeding $75.
In general, standard Federal travel policies apply: CCC will reimburse for non-refundable economy airfare on U.S. Flag carriers; and no alcohol will be covered.
For more information, please see the Guidelines for Participant Reimbursements from CCC.
Additional questions about the reimbursement policy should be directed to Ann Drobnis, CCC Director (adrobnis [at] cra.org).
