JSAI-isAI 2020

The twelfth JSAI International Symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI 2020) will take place entirely online at Campus Innovation Center Tokyo, Tamachi Campus, Tokyo Institute of Technology, on November 15 through 17, 2020. JSAI-isAI is an event that hosts multiple international workshops at the same location, providing a unique and intimate forum for colleagues in a focused discipline. JSAI-isAI also provides an important opportunity for AI researchers to gather and share their knowledge. JSAI-isAI 2020 is in succession to the international workshops co-located with JSAI annual conferences since 2009.

Fourteenth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2020)

Juris-informatics is a new research area which studies legal issues from the perspective of informatics. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss both the fundamental and practical issues for juris-informatics among people from the various backgrounds such as law, social science, information and intelligent technology, logic and philosophy, including the conventional “AI and law” area. We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.

Co-chairs: Ken Satoh (National Insitute of Informatics), Nguyen Le Minh (JAIST), and Yasuhiro Ogawa (Nagoya University)

Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 17 (LENLS17)

LENLS is an annual international workshop on formal syntax, semantics and pragmatics. We invite submissions on topics in formal syntax, model-theoretic and/or proof-theoretic semantics, computational semantics, game-theoretic/bayesian approaches to pragmatics, non-classical logic and its relation to natural language, and formal philosophy of language.

Co-chairs: Koji Mineshima (Keio University), Daisuke Bekki (Ochanomizu University/National Institute of Informatics), Elin McCready (Aoyama Gakuin University)

Fourth International Workshop on Scientific Document Analysis (SCIDOCA2020)

Recent proliferation of scientific papers and technical documents has become an obstacle to efficient information acquisition of new information in various fields. It is almost impossible for individual researchers to check and read all related documents. Even retrieving relevant documents is becoming harder and harder. This workshop gathers all the researchers and experts who are aiming at scientific document analysis from various perspectives, and invite technical paper presentations and system demonstrations that cover any aspects of scientific document analysis.

Co-chairs: Yuji Matsumoto (Riken Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP))

Kansei and artificial intelligence

Various textures perceived through the five senses are used in our decision making and executions. Our level of understanding and methodology differ in each of the five senses. Researches in visual-texture perception are said to be the most developed among all. However, the neural mechanism of visual-texture perception remains unclear for the most part. Thus, there is no established way to reproduce the mechanism with artificial intelligence. In the field of tactile-texture perception research, where tactile has been considered to be primitive compared to vision, technologies to display tactile sensation using artificial intelligent are awaited. Various of problems are making them difficult to be realized: Auditory-texture perception caused by complex signal modulation, Taste-texture perception inseparable from visual sense and sense of smell, and elucidation of the relationship of higher-order sensitivity processing in brain. Approaches based on statistical machine learning represented by ‘deep-learning’ which has been remarkably developed in recent years are being applied to understand the overview of the brain that constitutes the texture perception network. These attempts are mainly focused on visual-texture aspects and few are reported related to tactile-texture so far. This WS is to be an opportunity to share the progress of research and to share methodology by researchers studying the five senses. The scope of this WS shall be: (1) research of science and engineering related to value judgements made through the five senses, such as image processing, tactile engineering, acoustics, machine learning, sensitivity engineering, and natural language processing (2) research of biological systems, psychophysical, and neuroscience. We would like to discuss the scientific understanding of texture information processing and the possibility of developing new artificial intelligence research.
