Goals of the Workshop 

The goal of the workshop, the sixth in the series at COMPSAC, is to foster interaction and information exchange among AI researchers and practitioners from academia and industry on safe, reliable and trustworthy real-world applications of AI and Machine learning (ML), . The workshop aims at: presenting a variety of novel AI/ML applications, case studies, and validation of AI technologies; examining risks and concerns of AI and ML; outlining practical challenges in formulating and implementing an AI strategy discussing ‘AI for Good’ initiatives; addressing topics such as eXplainable AI, algorithmic fairness, trust and reliability; and discussing challenges related to safe and robust deployment of AI; AI on a chip; new generation AI/ML models; sustainable AI; AI for sustainability; testing/validation and certification.

Workshop Theme 

AI is now more pervasive than ever, influencing all aspects of our work and life. And AI is advancing from narrow AI towards Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) bringing in new and enhanced capabilities.  Several efforts are underway towards harnessing AI along multiple dimensions such as smart handling of large data, realization of novel algorithms and new models of computing, and supporting several socio and economic initiatives.  These efforts would lead to building better and more sustainable AI models addressing sustainability in the entire lifecycle of AI. AI has the potential to not only make our lives better but also help better manage our planet.  AI can also assist us in realizing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  This year’s workshop theme is aligned with  the conference theme,  Resilient Computing and Computing for Resilient in Sustainable Cyber-physical world. The Workshop will cover AI research and practice and socio-technical challenges facing the adoption of AI,, outline the status of AI in practice, and examine AI’s unrealized potential.

Scope of the Workshop 

This workshop will facilitate much-needed interaction and information exchange among AI researchers, practitioners, and business executives. It will provide an interactive forum for discussion on recent and emerging developments, key issues and challenges, and practices related to AI applications. It will also serve as a platform to present case studies and discuss application experience as well as to demonstrate applications and software tools. Researchers and practitioners from all over the world from academia, industry and government are invited to present their work and perspectives and participate in the workshop.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in AI, ML, deep learning, cognitive computing, intelligent agent, and chatbot
