Workshops

The first day of the conference comprises a range of workshops, to be held on Tuesday 12th December. Delegates will find these events to be especially valuable where there is a current need to consider the introduction of new AI technologies into their own organisations.

There will be four half-day workshops, including the Twenty-second UK CBR Workshop. Delegates are free to choose any combination of morning and afternoon sessions to attend. The programme of workshops is shown below. Note that the morning session starts at 11 a.m. to reduce the need for delegates to stay in Cambridge on the previous night. There is a lunch break from 12.30-13.15 and there are refreshment breaks from 14.45-15.15 and from 16.45-17.00.

Workshops organiser: Professor Adrian Hopgood, University of Portsmouth


Stream 1 - Morning (11.00-12.30 and 13.15-14.45 Nightingale Room)

Autonomic Systems that Learn

Chair:
Dr Botond Virginas, BT Research

The next phase of computing involves sophisticated, complex systems that perform human like tasks. Our belief is that the management of such complexity will be impossible in the future without self-learning autonomous systems. Therefore, the next challenge is not only understanding “Big Data” but devising complex systems incorporating more and more sophisticated machine learning techniques. Presently, however, software systems that incorporate machine learning are hard to build, deploy, and maintain. They require a large and highly skilled workforce. Unlike traditional enterprise systems, once built, they often require thousands of hours of on-going, sometimes daily, maintenance to ensure that their predictions and behaviour continue to be accurate and useful. Integrating machine learning systems into traditional enterprise architecture, testing and deployment processes are likewise too complex, partly due to organizational silos that exist between systems engineers and data scientists.

This workshop will cover topics that deal with the design, implementation, verification, deployment and lifecycle management of such systems not forgetting the Human Interface frameworks necessary for the viability of such solutions. Risk and Trust will also be addressed and we will aim to provide both a theoretical and a practical industry view on the problem space.

Stream 1 - Afternoon (15.15-16.45 and 17.00-18.30 Nightingale Room)

AI Applications in Law

Chairs:
Dr John Kingston, University of Brighton
Professor Frans Coenen, University of Liverpool

This workshop is intended to demonstrate a variety of AI techniques applied within the legal domain. Contributions are invited describing any application in any domain of law (including compliance with regulations; policing; legal aspects of public or corporate policy; and evidence management) that uses AI techniques.

Please see the dedicated workshop webpage for the full invitation to contribute.

By popular demand, the submission date for this workshop has been extended until 6th October 2017.


Stream 2 (Lubbock Room)

Autonomous mobile robots

Chair:
Prof. Dr. Lars Nolle, Jade Hochschule/University of Applied Science, Germany

Details to follow.


Stream 3 - Morning (11.00-12.30 and 13.15-14.45 Peterhouse Lecture Theatre)

22nd Case-Based Reasoning Workshop - session 1

Chair:
Professor Miltos Petridis, Middlesex University
