Kinds of Intelligence 2: Machine Minds (KoI2:MM)
Dates: June 19th-21st, 2019
Location: University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
KoI2:MM is an interdisciplinary conference exploring issues related to our understanding of intelligence and minds in the age of AI. This year, we are inviting abstract submissions on each of the conference's three main themes:
Day 1: Artificial consciousness in the age of deep learning
Is it possible to create machine consciousness? If so, should we, and how can this be regulated?
How will we know if or when we have artificial consciousness?
How does deep learning allow us to approach or understand consciousness differently?
Day 2: Generality and intelligence in animals and AI
What is generality and could machines have it?
What are the trade-offs between generality and performance in animals and machines?
How can the common-sense knowledge of animals be encoded for use with AI? Does it need to be?
Day 3: Artificial Intelligence and intelligence augmentation
How will our understanding of minds change as they become more integrated with machines?
How are AI techniques used for cognitive enhancements now and in the near future?
How do we best navigate the benefits and risks associated with augmented intelligence?
Confirmed speakers (as of posting on Dec. 5th, 2018):
Prof. Thomas Metzinger
Prof. Claire Sergent
Prof. Eva Jablonka
Prof. Anders Sandberg
Prof. Brian Cantwell Smith

The conference will be proceeded by the 2nd annual Margaret Boden Lecture given this year by Prof. Daniel Dennett (on June 18th). Registration for this public lecture will be separate.
The conference is organised through, and supported by, the Kinds of Intelligence Programme (http://lcfi.ac.uk/projects/kinds-of-intelligence/) within the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (lcfi.ac.uk).
