First International Workshop on
Aim and Scope
Algorithmic Intelligence is a collective and pragmatic term for the
range of algorithmic methods that have been identified as key revenue drivers
in companies. The topic contrasts the term Artificial Intelligence in two ways:
Firstly, while Artificial Intelligence carries some meaning that there is intelligence, but nothing real, Algorithmic Intelligence is focused on methods that solve a given problem. Secondly, if a method exists to solve a complex looking problem or give a good approximation of the solution, then this method belongs to Algorithmic Intelligence even if it is too simple to be called Artificial Intelligence.
However, there is real need for software systems capable of taking actions in
real-time situations involving sensor inputs, state variables,
situation assessments and environmental conditions.
Algorithmic Intelligence thus tributes to the fact
that computer action for real-life applications
refers to an algorithmic and constructive process.
The machine is an information constructor, assisted by humans
to create machine representations of objective reality.
New information is linked to prior knowledge.
Algorithmic Intelligence also includes
tackling optimization problems where there is no learning
as such, but methods come in as a way of dealing with
With this workshop we agree to stress the impact
that well-founded AI algorithms have for the success in practice,
while referring to a broad spectrum of efficient methods rather than
centering around neural networks and fuzzy logic aspects.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring
together researchers with an interest in Algorithms, Applications,
and AI. The goals are to
The workshop will welcome submissions on all ideas,
research, experiments and tools.
- tease out common themes and differences,
- identify common problems and their solutions,
- share experiences with the applicability of techniques from one field to problems
from the other, and
- identify the key issues to be addressed in increasing the convergence between
